I have a new homework assignment and it's a tough one. I've been asked to say how I feel when I think or experience a particular situation... And this is difficult enough because so often I use thinking words rather than feeling words. I think I'm feeling something but, in truth I'm thinking it.... AAAAARGH! Well, the reason this is an important exercise it that, once I've identified a feeling, I am supposed to identify where that feeling occurs in my body. In other words, "How does that feeling manifest itself?" I understand I get into trouble when I decide I've felt something rather than thought it and then attribute the feeling to the circumstances or individual causing me to feel a particular way... It's faulty thinking. I need to work on this and if you're anything like me perhaps you do too?
