Up Level Thursday And A Failed Vocab Test
how are you?
Would you pass the emotional vocab test?
I'm not sure I would.
And that's why I love some assistance.
The above emotion wheel was created by a teacher to help her students.
Go to the 5 main emotions at the center:
Pick the one that applies best to your current state, and then move out from there to the outer circles.
As with any new thing, practice this. Expand your vocabulary on this and see how helpful; this is when someone asks you " How are you?"
Imagine the shock on their faces when you say :
" I am feeling delightful--daring--insignificant--irritated--inadequate--thankful"
The more you use this new vocabulary, the more the people around you will pick it up also.
You know I have to say this:
Don't swallow your feelings !!
Actually, don't shun them or wallow in them .
Try feeling them, that's what they are made for. And your body knows perfectly well how to feel them.
The problem is they are stuffed down and not allowed to take their path. Or we wallow in the same feeling and don't let it leave us.
I know you never do this ;) but you know someone who always complains, right?
Did you know that we can become addicted to emotions? It's true.
The constant complainer.
The Debbie downer.
The daredevil Doug.
The sanguine Suzy.
The scared Scott.
We train our brains and form synapses with the thoughts we are thinking and the feeling we are feeling.
Feelings are addictive.
I encourage you to feel them fully. Even move through them, by walking, journaling, jump roping , dancing....
Next week , I will write more about complaining. And what we can do when someone complains to us, AND the difference between complaining and venting!
Mondays and Thursdays at 9:15 PM I share more on varying topics. Join me!
PS: Message me for a free consult to start moving toward a more emotionally intelligent you..
You are loved. Deeply loved. Loved beyond measure.
