A Therapist’s Insight: Why Your Feelings are More Like Weather and How This Perspective Can Help You Overcome Pain

March 21, 2024

Lori Gottlieb reminds us how we can fall into the trap of thinking the pain and agony we are suffering right now will last forever in her book, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone.

“Sometimes in their pain, people believe that the agony will last forever.

But feelings are actually more like weather systems—they blow in and they blow out. 

Just because you feel sad this minute or this hour or this day doesn’t mean you’ll feel that way in ten minutes or this afternoon or next week.

Everything you feel—anxiety, elation, anguish—blows in and out again.”
