Increase your self-esteem by analysing your feelings (1 minute read)
This post “Increase your self-esteem by analysing your feelings” continues with how you can increase your self-esteem by getting to know yourself.
Increase your self-esteem by analysing your feelings:
Feelings are very important to our existence: to understand ourselves, take care of ourselves and to interact with others.
There is to date no agreement among researchers and scientists on the definition of feelings and the actual number of innate feelings we have. The researcher Silvan Tomkins has had a great impact in the research field. He has identified 9 innate feelings which are either rewarding, punishing or neutral with the purpose to create a sense of urgency in us in order to:
- Bring situations and things to our attention
- Motivate us to act in a certain way.
More about these 9 feelings in the next post.
Go back in your diary over your feelings. Try to see if you can identify any patterns:
– Which feelings are frequent in your life?
– What is the reason behind this?
– What does this say about your life?
– What can you do about it?
