Relief: n. reducing and/or eliminating (pain and/or misery) and/or (discomfort and/or anxiety) and/or (need and/or fear) and/or (tediousness and/or a usually bad emotional subset(s))
Most of us don’t want relief from happiness, enjoyment, excitement, love, and good feelings in general but most of us want relief from pain, misery, discomfort, anxiety, fear, and bad feelings in general.
Relief reduces or completely eliminates the bad emotions or feelings for a little duration and sometimes for a long duration and permits the good feelings and emotions to take over for duration.
Sometimes other humans have the power to relieve bad emotions and feelings with a few kind words or words of optimistic encouragement. Most of the time it is our responsibility to deal with pain and emotional discomfort ourselves and try to make sure that it doesn’t happen again by modifying our behavior in the future so that the bad feelings don’t return.
The secret to relieving bad emotions is much selfcontrol and a conscientious effort to do things differently the next time. Changing frame of mind and behavior increases the probability that the bad emotions won’t resurface as they will if you do nothing to change them or don’t alter your behavior so that bad feelings don’t resurface again.
