Do you feel in black and white? October 8, 2017

I ran across an interesting article recently that explained emotion is, in part, culturally acquired. The article shared that our social environment teaches us how to interpret and label the physical sensations commonly called “emotions.”

(If you grew up in an environment that suppressed emotion you may have an especially hard time recognizing what exactly it is you’re feeling.)

This made me think about our common struggle to express ourselves and the frustrating problem of being misunderstood when we talk about our sense of being depressed, or anxious, or manic, etc.

For example, the word “depressed” is in itself not very specific and is kinda hard for anyone to act on. Compare that word to the words: “Trapped” “Abandoned” “Lectured to” “Powerless”

When we can put our feelings into more nuanced language we’re better able to address the situations that trigger them.  Here are a couple lists to consider when you’re thinking about how to describe what it is you’re actually feeling.
