Hey friends. When I have an emotion come up but I’m not sure what it is, I like to investigate! I spend time with myself going over the feeling, asking myself questions so I understand it. If you’re looking for ways to understand your own feelings, here’s how to understand your emotions with 50 questions.
When an emotion comes up, but you don’t know where it’s coming from it can be really frustrating. Recently, some of my readers have asked about how I personally process my emotions. So, I wanted to share what I do with you here.
First of all, you can do this either in your head, by writing it down or even by talking to yourself out loud.
Whichever way you choose, when I process my emotions I like to be alone. I’ll go somewhere where I can be by myself in the quiet.
Then I’ll start thinking or writing about the feeling. I’ll recall the feeling in as much detail as possible.
After that, I’ll start asking myself questions and examining the emotion from as many angles as possible. This is where the questions come in.
Now, start interviewing yourself about the emotion. The point isn’t to ask all 50 questions. And they’re not in a certain order. Just keep in mind that you’re asking yourself whatever it takes to get to the root of the emotion.
When you’re processing your emotions, don’t be afraid to ask yourself the ugly, scary questions. It’s just you, after all. No one is going to hear you or judge you.
If you’re dedicated to processing the emotion and getting to the root, you’ll be able to. I hope this post helps you understand your feelings better.
