Questioning. I just wanted to say thank you for this thread.
The TEA concept is new to me but wow, it's a powerful tool to difuse a challenging emotion.
I'm not offering advice of any sort just a thank you for sharing. Your insights have helped me and I'm sure others as well. If there's any consolation in that, I hope you accept it.
Good luck. I wish you nothing but love and peace. May you have stillness of heart sooner than later.
