“I think you do have to be realistic when it comes to emotions because if you’re not, then you’re always going to be let down, you’re always going to be so fearful of what comes next; this goes into the control conversation as well. There’s so much fear in emotions because we don’t know how to control them, or they are so unknown. It’s really just something inside us that if we go into those small actions, it will teach us how to control it more. ”
– Lauren Atencio, Clinical Director
