She wanted to know how to rid herself of these emotions which she felt were wrong. I quickly stopped her and said, "Whoa!"
Emotions are definitely not character defects. Like our bodies, our emotions tell us our truth. If I follow and listen to my emotions, I will learn much. More of my own truth is being revealed. What if I could learn to trust my feelings instead of asking to be delivered from them?
What is my truth behind my particular emotion or feeling? Is there a personal boundary that I am allowing to be trampled? Is there a fundamental value of mine that is being undermined? Am I being disrespected and my sense of self-worth being trampled? Perhaps there IS a character flaw behind my present emotion which is fueling my fire - perhaps an expectation or a resentment. I can come to know the truth behind my emotion and this revelation will bring me clarity and healing.
My emotions are my friend and tell me my truth if I care to look closely at them and listen to what they are telling me.
