Frequently, disputes can’t be fixed, becautilize individuals use interpretations in the place of emotions to explain what exactly is taking place in their mind. The huge difference is the fact that emotions describe a feeling at point with time.
Some situations: emotions: i’m unfortunate, furious, afraid, disgusted, pissed, insecure, guilty, pity, etc. Interpretation: we feel betrayed, utilized, managed, mistrusted, deceived, etc.
The issue using the latter is, why these really perhaps perhaps not explain what’s going on in the individual. You can pose issue: “How exactly does it feel to be betrayed, utilized, managed, etc.?” to return into the emotions that are actual.
Yes , feeling is a significantly better term than adjective. I shall make that noticeable modification in the article.
Your point about “interpretations”, i.e, accusatory adjectives, is interesting. I do believe as a whole that you will be right. Some people do seem to find those words useful, probably if they are self-confident folks who are open to hearing all kinds of feedback at the same time. The potentially accusatory-sounding word becomes a jumping off point for mutual exploration from both parties in these cases.
For people who have difficulty finding a sense word, the old TA (Transactional Analysis) choices are helpful. Take to: angry, unfortunate, scared or happy.
