The practice of allowing is very important here. These feelings are not fun. Our natural human reaction is to want to push them away, run from them, or distract ourselves through any means possible. For me, remembering that you feel the feeling, but you are not the feeling can be helpful. It reminds me that feelings are temporary. They will swell up like an ocean wave, potentially crashing over your head, but then like all waves they will wash onto shore, settle and recede back into the sea.
