November – not many 2’s -AMD

I have a 2 part question:

Hi Brooke,

I have a 2 part question:
Working through the homework, I found that most of my emotions became 1’s (allow) or 3’s (indulgent). I labeled only one or two as 2 (unwanted but allow). So that is not the direction that I thought the work was intended to lead me. I allowed the obvious (sorrow at the loss of a loved one, anger at injustice etc). Most of my feelings are more subtle… disappointment, doubt, fear, worry, frozen, uncomfortable. When I model them, they all lead to buffering – so I labeled them all 3. Was that correct? And part of me thinks that without the feelings of disappointment, doubt or fear, I would really be a weird person. In some ways, these feelings help me find my thought errors, so they are needed if we are to find those errors and study them. On the other hand, more than a few minutes of worry is just a waste of time – because it just drives buffering and suffering.
