How can I stop feelings from controlling my actions and making life worse?

Don’t fight your feelings.

Instead, let your feelings show you exactly what you want right now.

Let your feelings and the stories you tell yourself about them happen as they happen, and don’t resist. Resisting only adds feedback loops to the stories—to what you tell yourself about how you’re feeling—causing anxiety and binding you to your current state.

Seeing exactly how you feel and why in a given moment helps ground you to the bigger picture of your life, and to what you truly want deep down beneath the noise.

Then your feelings can come and go freely, and you won’t be tied to or held back by them anymore.
