When you want to climb Everest, you start on small little hills first. Right? You learn how to climb. And as you learn how to climb, gradually, you start to approach higher, more challenging mountains. You don’t start with Everest number one. Right?
So, if you have learned how to deal with small difficult emotions which come up, that gives us confidence and gradually we learn how to deal with the more difficult powerful ones. The mind has to be trained. The whole of Buddhist practice is about training. And as with any training, you start small and then you build up. And then you develop the confidence that you can actually do it.
