Edge – Emotions


Being Able to Name Emotions Helps You Manage Them. Have you ever noticed that you often don’t know what you feel? Do you sometimes feel like you’re walking around in an emotional fog, knowing that you feel bad or upset, but not being able to really name the emotion you’re feeling? If you don’t know what emotion you’re feeling, it’s really hard to do anything about that emotion or to help yourself tolerate it. Once you can put a name on an emotion, you can often figure out what to do about it.
