• A difficulty for me is clearly recognizing what I feel. Today I was speaking to my brother and his lack of response appeared dismissive. I believed I was being ignored or unacknowledged or disrespected in some way. But being ignored isn't an emotion. Disconnected feels closer, but still isn't an emotion.

    I'd find it useful if there was a category for the purpose of identifying what is felt and once I feel clear on that I could post in the appropriate category.

  • Great idea! I too have experienced this problem, but never really thought about it much. I made a new forum about it: http://www.emotionforums.com/Forum-Emotion-identification
