Honouring emotions doesn’t mean feeling them all the time or being submerged in them. You can feel emotions in chunks, in small digestible quantities. While honouring and acknowledging emotions is very much needed, you need to decide how much you can process at a given time. Acknowledge then step back and then do the same again and again.
Intense emotions can’t be felt all at once. It can become overwhelming. Processing in small amounts is better.
