Controlling Emotions

I don’t think one should control one’s emotions. It’s not really super healthy to be like, “I’m going to repress my anger.” Still, that doesn’t mean that the mind should let emotions control one’s actions. I’m thinking to meditation where I don’t try to force thoughts to go away. The more I do that, the more the thought fights back. Instead, acknowledge that it exists, and then move on. Even when not meditating, I think it makes sense to treat emotions similarly. It’s healthier to know one’s emotions and acknowledge them than to try to force them away. (Except when the times call for ignoring certain emotions and then acting according to the rational mind.)
