How are you feeling?
What are you feeling right now?
How are you experiencing that feeling?
Did you know that all of our feelings are just as important? All of them. Your emotions created feelings, and feelings creates actions and action take us forward.
I had a lecture today when this was the topic, my lecture spoke about how all of the feelings can lead to something good. It might sound like a cliché, but if you think about it, that is just what it is. Excitement for example, excitement is a feeling that will push you to do something. When you feel excited, what do you feel like doing? Calling a friend, laugh, go to the beach, workout, anything! On the other hand, what if you are feeling sadness, then what do you feel like doing? Watch a movie, go to bed, again call a friend? The point is that that emotion, that leads to a feeling leads you to act. The action takes you forward!
When I got diagnosed with depression my psychologist asked me a lot about my feelings, and I just could not answer. Now after almost finishing my first year of psychology I know that the reason for that might have been because of depression. Depression is not a feeling or emotion, it´s a state, depression simple said, takes you feelings away. That means you are not acting or moving forward automatically. Feeling sad is better than feeling nothing because it makes you act forward.
A typical question we ask each other is; "how are you feeling?", have you even then after getting a response asked how that feelings feels for them? Good, how does good feel for you today? Maybe it is different from day to day!
Ask others what they feel, and how that feelings feels.
Ask yourself what you feel, and how that feels? Allow yourself to feel, it will only take you forward.
