Who -- would you say -- is your friend? Is pain your friend? Would you say suffering is your friend? How about guilt?
See. You can be intimately close to a (negative) emotion. It's your go-to feeling. You default to those emotions when the universe wants you to move on. Of course, your 'friends' will make sure you don't change. They want you to stay right : where : you are.
The next time you're working on moving forward and you feel those familiar feelings, just keep going. It'll soon get better. I promise.
