Emotions Exist in the Body Image may not be published, presented, or duplicated without permission

When the answer to “what am I feeling?” is “I don’t know,” change the question to “what do I notice about my body right now?”

Lots of us learned to numb or muffle emotion- and some of us got so good at it that knowing what we feel can be really, really hard. Although our awareness can be numbed, the body’s sense of emotion never leaves.

One way to learn to process and express emotion in our awareness is to start making connections- “oh, anger actually feels like *this* in my body!”- so when we are feeling ambiguously “bad” or struggling to figure out what we need from a friend, colleague, or partner, we can use this information to help us ask for what we need.
