Everything in this world in temporary, we might not be able to accept it at first, but slowly as time passes by, we realize that the friends, family, feelings or even the things we love don't stay the same anymore. All these facts are inevitable and we need to accept them slowly. :)

The feelings will remain, you will just become adaptable as time passes. It might be possible that they won't last long. The thing is you will be over them, just give them some time.

No, feelings come and go, like waves in an ocean, or the seasons in a year. You may feel like this will never come to an end, but it will eventually. Important is that you don't give up

No feelings last forever, whether we are talking about negative or positive "feelings". These "feelings" can and will change and that is okay and normal. This is true from feelings of sadness and even love. In the case of love as an example, we must choose to accept someone and love them regardless of flaws, the "feeling" of in love might come and go, but when you choose to love someone, as long as you are not in an unsafe or unhealthy scenario of course that might be a close a definition of "true love" as we can muster without incorporating peoples perceptions. If you are feeling something else, perhaps something we assign a negative connotation to, take heart that the feeling is not a permanent one, if just that little bit helps than you are doing great. Feel free to message me as a listener if you need an ear, and as always have a great day 7 cups community!

No, as you grow and change your feelings will change as well to better represent who you are at that time.

NO. YOU ARE JUST ATTACHED TO THAT PERSON, YOU WILL EVENTUALLY MOVE ON AND ONE DAY, YOU WILL LOOK BACK AND JUST SAY "I LIVE WITHOUT THE PERSON I THOUGHT I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT"....BEST FEELING EVER

Just like most things in life, feelings do not last forever. The feelings and emotions we experience can sometimes overwhelm us terribly, and it can feel that they will never go away. While it may be really hard to get over how we feel at a certain moment, we need to know that there are many things we can do to feel better. Sometimes we just need some time to heal, other times we need to talk to someone and express our thoughts, and other times we may need to seek professional help. Things can always get better.

They may or may not last forever. It depends on what kind of feelings you have and how you handle them :)

That is the million dollar question! Rather you are referring to negative or positive feelings the answer falls on you. I am a true believer of "Life is only as difficult as we make it out to be". I understand that you can not help how you feel, however, if there is something about YOU that YOU do not like or approve of, *coughs* then CHANGE IT! Easier said then done (I know), but if it's something that you truly want, then it is possible! Take it into consideration. Hope this helps!

No, everything is temporary. You'll get over it eventually. It's a cliche, but it's true "Life gets better"

These feelings will not last forever, they do get better with time. They also get better as you speak about it, when others help, then you don't feel alone.

Feelings come and go, but all feelings are worth it, whether they are good or bad. Just focus on being in the now and focus on how you feel and staying content with how you feel also.

Your mind has about 6 million thoughts a minute and imagine how many feelings come with it? Think about any past experiences of hurt or being upset over something, years ago, now you've had many of those I'm sure, but you see right now, it seems like you are brand new, you're not painted or polished because of it. So feelings come and go and you do have power over them.

Yes. Those feeling with never completely wear out, they will just fade. They will become as if you can't feel it but it's still there. But trust me, it takes a long time for that.

No. Time heals everything - it's cliche, but true. I know that at the moment, your feelings might seem like they will never, ever go away, but trust me, they will. Give it time.

We're human beings, our feelings are constantly changing and our circumstances are always changing; these happen vice-versa and intertwine with eachother

Absolutely not. Feelings are fleeting and temporary. Whatever you're feeling now could change completely in just hours, maybe days, or even months, but they will change.

Absolutely not! The feelings you are experiencing at the moment, however bad they are, will eventually go. Your life will move on, and so will you. Sometimes these things take a little time.

They might last forever, but they wont last forever if you stand up against your feelings and fight back.

Feelings can always change, there is always hope and the word around us is always bringing new opportunities and gifts. Stay strong.

Forever is a long time, change can occur. Out of the blue. Your feelings short term can be affected by music/films,environment and people. Try to surround self with positive people. Sometimes it feels like the end of something, where in reality it is just a breaking down of old beliefs/values/mores in order to clear the way for new/better ones.

The happenings behind the feelings may last for a long time, but the way you're feeling won't. You just need to remember that time is your best friend, and heals a lot.

No. Time will eventually numb the pain no matter how difficult it is to believe. We never grow out of feelings, they simple don't become our top priority anymore, they're put aside. Whether it takes days, months, weeks or even years, time will help numb it.

They might if you make them your focus. And sometimes, it is good too, you might learn to live with them, deal with them. Yet if they are only making you run around like a headless chicken, confused and dazed about what to do next, then it is better to step away, look at it from a different perspective and the come back to it at a later stage when you are a lot calmer.

Who can say? Life is complex-- human beings are complex, and we often know not even the contents of our own hearts. Negative feelings do tend to decay with time as we work through them, and happy feelings often grow as we build upon them. Rather than worry about the future, perhaps focus on the now. Try to find joy in the now. (:
