Feelings
Pleasant Feelings
Difficult Feelings
We all experience feelings, both pleasant and difficult.
Feelings tell us so much about ourselves every second of
our life. Feelings can change as quickly as a blink of the
eye. In fact, change, especially major changes, can cause
major changes in feelings. If the change involves something
you see as positive, then you will experience pleasant,
welcoming feelings. If the change is not welcomed, in fact
dreaded, it can cause the most difficult feelings you could
ever imagine. Pleasant feelings make us happy other
feelings may,make us sad.
Sometimes there are situations that leave us saying, "I don't know what to feel." The number one thing
you need to know about feelings there are not right or wrong feelings. When you say, "I don't know
what
to feel," or "I don't know
how I'm suppose to feel," there is no certain way you're suppose to feel ever.
You just feel. Maybe in those instances you feel confused. Maybe you're feeling several feelings, both
pleasant and not so pleasant. But you do feel.

Sometimes individuals say they are numb and can't feel anything. The feeling there is numb. Shut down
is usually feeling safe.

I remember when my sister committed suicide. I found out through a phone call. The second I
processed what was being said to me, which literally took about a second, a scream started to come out
of my mouth. At that very second I shut down and the scream stopped before it even got out of my
mouth. I went to the funeral and never cried. When I talked to other people, I never shed a tear. I was
clearly shut, my devastation safely tucked away. What I was feeling at a deeply subconscious level was
safe. One day, five years later, I was at home by myself, thinking about my sister, and here it came.
First it was tears, and then the sobbing lasted for hours. At that point, my subconscious began to feed
the information to my conscious. As the grief slowly expressed itself, I let it flow, both my subconscious
and conscious feeling safe enough to let it happen.

Feelings, both physical and emotional, give us information. When your head hurts you think about what
might be causing the headache. Is it stress, are you outside in the sun, did you bump your head, Once
you know the what and why, you act accordingly. When you have emotional pain, listen to yourself to
see what it is and why you have it. Below are some words to help you with defining your feelings.
