The Feelings Wheel

The original author describes it as "A wheel of emotional words." The Feelings Wheel is a valuable tool that helps you determine root emotions or feelings.

The Feelings Wheel

I came across this handy tool that has been a big help to me; it’s called the Feelings Wheel.

I first saw it here, and I thought it could be valuable and helpful, so I am posting it here:

It seems like this first originated on this website.

How The Feelings Wheel can help you

As a somewhat emotional person, I usually have a hard time describing how I feel. I especially have difficulty knowing what feelings made me feel the way I feel. In other words, what is the actual root feeling that is contributing to my current feeling?

For instance, when I feel inadequate, now I know that the root cause of this could be insecurity, and the root cause of insecurity is fear.

Of course, this is not the Bible. Just a helpful tool.
