Emotions

 One step to overcoming emotional pain:

Emotions can be intense and they can be scary. You might be scared that if you begin to experience your feelings that they will overwhelm you and take over. The fear of emotions can actually make them worse.

Learn to name your emotions:

 When you are feeling something, ask yourself which category of emotion it fits with.

Love – passion, caring, affection, attraction, warmth…

Sadness – blue mood, despair, grief, feeling down, hurt, disappointed…

Fear – anxiety, nervousness, panic, terror, shock…

Happiness – joy, elated, excited, content, relieved, eager, pride…

Anger – rage, irritable, grumpy, cranky, aggravated…

Guilt – regret, sorry, remorse…

Shame – embarrassed, humiliated, shy, self conscious…

Disgust – aversion, disdain, dislike, repelled…

Envy – pettiness, bitterness, dissatisfied, longing…

Jealousy – clinging, protective, possessive…

 

Feeling is not only about emotion. It is about sensation and perception. When you name it and describe it, it loses some if it’s power.
