The Emotion Regulation Handout 4: Ways to Describe Emotions, are for you to use for help in
describing your emotions. You don't need to read them all through unless you want to. You can refer to them when you need some help in describing your emotions. Probably you will find that not everything in these lists fits you. Emotions are very individual, and you can choose things that fit, and add other things.
If you are having trouble, try describing the qualities of your emotions. There are no right answers here. We are trying to get you to pay more close attention to your own emotions.
Some things interfere with observing and describing emotions. One of these things is secondary emotions. Secondary emotions are those that come after the original emotions For example, you might feel angry, and then you might feel shame for feeling angry. Or you might feel sad, and then feel angry about the sadness. This makes it harder to figure out what was your original emotion and to work on dealing with that. Ask yourself, "Was that my first feeling?
Some people also often feel ambivalence, or more than one emotion at the same time, like both anger and sadness when someone dies or goes away.
You will become more skilled at describing emotions as you practice. I suggest that you do this exercise several times (make some photocopies of the page) over the next couple of weeks. The more you practice, the better you will get at describing and observing your emotions. Don't feel discouraged if it doesn't come easily at first. Looking at emotions this way is changing patterns that a lot of us have been using most of our lives. There are no right answers. The idea is for you to get practice in observing and describing your emotions.
