Further thots and expansion
I mentioned earlier that there is a difference between discomfort and hostility. I think the fundamental difference is motive or intention. If the motive is to examine why we are stuck and to help us move on then the correct emotion could be discomfort. It's always tough. But if the motive is to subvert, destroy etc. then we may feel hostility. But unless we are trained to tell the difference, it can look the same and sound the same. Our response to both should be different.
