Feeling ineffective is very different from feeling worthless.
Being down is not the same as being miserable.
If someone irritates us, it’s not the same as if they would enrage us.
When we feel regret for a situation, that does not make the situation humiliating.
Language is made of shades. And when it comes to emotions, in particular, being able to verbalize the different levels of intensity can make the difference between seeing options and getting lost.
How are you feeling today?
