What does it mean, especially when it comes to painful feelings?
People often say, just live with the feeling, don't run away from it, etc. But how is that possible? When I experience a negative and painful emotion, like jealousy or hatred, is it not reasonable to try and 'run away' from it? What does it even mean to live with the feeling, especially when it hurts like hell? We dont normally try and live with a toothache.
So my question is, Is that really good advice, connected to Buddhism at all (and not just a new agey thing)?
