All worries, concerns, fears, frustrations, embarrassments, disappointments, apprehensions, etc, only last as long as we're dwelling on thoughts that produce these feelings, whether in memory or imagination. As soon as the thoughts have passed or our attention is shifted, we either return to neutrality or, more likely, move onto other thoughts with their accompanying feeling states.

It all depends on our current thoughts and state of attention.
