I've found it to be awkward and tiring to be trying to shift the vibration of everything bad I have experienced in my life for some reason.
For instance, nowadays when I find myself having negative emotions about a particular subject, my mind would go "Oh hey that's negative of you and you should stop feeling that way", and then I would try to go like "Wouldnt it be nice etc.." to make me feel better about that particular subject, since I can't possibly do a focus block while I am on the road. Sometimes I try to just do an imaginary focus block in my head though.
But it kinds of get irritating and tiring when you seemingly try to do this like 3-5 times a day, since I suppose most people meet negative stuff (be it small or big) a few times a day.
Shouldn't life be about experiencing all the positive and negative emotions balancely rather than trying to get rid of these negative emotions and mold them into more positive ones?

I don't see any mention in your question of you aligning with "The Vortex" - that joyful, passionate place that you naturally gravitate towards when you clean up your resistance.
If you don't use the relief you gain from making yourself feel better to then deliberately step into The Vortex then you're likely to always find more and more things to clean up...for the rest of your life.
It's like a plane accelerating down the runway ready to take off but then braking at the last moment before leaving the ground and coming to a halt...then doing it again, and again, and again.
Unless you "take off", you're going nowhere :)
So the point of the clean-up is preparation for Vortex alignment - and if you are not getting into The Vortex (at least once a day), you're not "taking off" :)
As you make Vortex alignment more and more habitual, the stuff that doesn't match it (the "bad" stuff) naturally drops away because it is not a vibrational match to the Vortex.
Every so often, the Vortex will kick you out of it in response to a thought that has been activated within you. But since that activated thought came while you were in alignment with your Broader Self ("The Vortex"), it is a signal from your Broader Self that the thought in question that you insisted on thinking needs cleaning up if you wish to continue with your Vortex alignment.
So you make a note of those "inspired" clean-up thoughts and deal with them in the next vibrational session.
If you are following the Focus Blocks Method and have then extended it in the full Advanced Focus Blocks Method (which is what I use), you are only doing vibrational clean-ups once a day anyway (20 mins max) to get into the Vortex.
And, as time goes on, your clean-up periods become shorter and shorter (some days, not at all) because your natural habit of vibrational alignment is one of being inside The Vortex instead of outside.

Use Two Hands Touching to feel better when you are feeling less than great. I don't do it while driving, but at stoplights or other times I am stopped in traffic and it is safe to do it. I don't always have close my eyes now. I use it every day by its self and also with affirmations and the EZ Deletion Sequence. I do that instead of telling myself that I am thinking negative thoughts. It is more gentle and kind and loving to myself that to judge and criticize and feel guilt for having negative thoughts. I don't Have to try to think of what to say or not say, just feel the peace. It works very well. Sometimes, if I can't do it because I am driving or something, I can think about doing it and the thoughts flee.
When you don't know what else to clear, Clear your way up the Emotional Guidance Scale.
Unfortunately as I grow older I find more and more life is to be endured until death. I find I have to live with more and more pain, more and more problems to deal with everyday. I didn't realize that the last years to really enjoy life were maybe in my 20's. Now at 45 soon to be 46 life is about enduring pain and responsibilities and problems, obligations, every day turns into what do I have to do today. I am trying to remember a day spent on what I want to do instead of what I have to do. Some times it feels like I am just tired and would like to sleep a week, but then of course everything starts back where it left off like I never had that sleep, so that would be ineffective.
I thought if they could invent a machine that keeps you in a sleep state for a kind of vacation from life were you could scheduled anything from two days to a month of sleep time I think it wouldn't matter because we pick up right where we left off, just like we do now everyday when we wake up.

I'm constantly reflecting on my awareness or being in alignment yet there are times when I flat feel bad about something. If it doesn't want to shift or pivot for me I sit with it and sift through to see if it's trying to tell me something, and often it is.
Then I learn what's up and from there I can gain relief and get to know myself better. I also am either able to change an outdated belief or decide on some action I will take on a subject that was bubbling below my awarness and now is in my face in a good way.
During these times I am bummed that I have to go through this and when I have my moment of discover I appreciate all the tiny little specks of light that were coming through.
