The “process” begins by accurately identifying, completely sharing and totally accepting your feelings. All of your feelings are important. You are responsible for how you act on your feelings. Feelings change unless you hold on to them. When feelings are released, it’s easier to move on from uncomfortable situations. You are not responsible for anyone else’s feelings. It is your responsibility to share your feelings with significant people in your life. Blocking, ignoring or denying feelings will lead to emotional and physical problems.
AVOID– “I feel that”… This is confusing and will only give a thought not a feeling.
AVOID– “I feel like…” This is confusing and tells what you would like to do about your feeling.
Use instead– “I feel ___.” Use the Feeling Blocks to fill in the blank with a feeling word (or words.) Share when you feel that way. “I feel ___ when ___.” Continue to share your story about why you feel that way until you begin to feel relieved.
When you know your feelings, you know yourself.
