Daily Om featured an excerpt from Tina Gilbertson's new book Constructive Wallowing as one of their Library Picks recently. Gilbertson, a Licensed Professional Counselor, explains that by learning to accept and embrace, rather than suppress difficult feelings and "keep calm and carry on," people can keep their sense of personal power and, better yet, gain greater understanding and ultimately esteem for themselves. Feeling bad can actually lead to feeling better, faster.
"You can either keep wrestling with your emotions and yourself, or you can accept yourself no matter how you feel. If you choose the latter, you’ll not only experience the relief and delight of genuine self-acceptance, but you’ll finally be able to truly “let go” of your stickiest emotions. This is how a person can use wallowing to work on healing even lifelong emotional pain," writes Gilbertson.
Gilbertson is touring Seattle this week. Meet her at these events:
6/24: Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park - 7pm
6/25: Barnes and Noble Downtown Seattle - 3pm-5pm
6/26: University Bookstore - 7pm
6/29: Eagle Harbor Books, Bainbridge, WA - 3pm
