Many of our patients believe that their emotions are abnormal, shameful, will go out of control, and are incomprehensible. The form of therapy that I have developed—Emotional Schema Therapy—helps normalize emotions, links emotions to values, increases acceptance, and helps people tolerate ambivalence.

Rather than aim for emotional perfectionism, we can encourage emotional realism.

This means that a full life is characterized by a full range of emotions, that emotions are temporary but important to validate, and that disappointment, disillusionment and confusion are often inevitable. Rather than try to get rid of unwanted emotions we can make room for emotions, put emotions into context, build on universalizing our experience, and even move toward gratitude and appreciation.
