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:
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.
