Increase your self-esteem by developing your feelings (1 minute read)

This post “Increase your self-esteem by developing your feelings” continues with how you can increase your self-esteem by getting to know yourself.

Increase your self-esteem by developing your feelings:

Feelings are very important to our existence. The researcher Silvan Tomkins has identified 9 innate feelings:

There are two inherently rewarding feelings, i.e. we want more of this:

  1. 1. Interest-Excitement to get resources and strive toward mastery
  2. Enjoyment-Joy to strengthen social bonds.

The neutral, brief feeling:

  1. Surprise-Startle to stop and shift attention

Five inherently punishing feelings motivating us to change the situation:

  1. Distress-Anguish, also including sadness, to get help as well as support in mourning losses
  2. Anger-Rage to fight and alter the situation
  3. Fear-Terror to flee or freeze from dangers
  4. Shame-Humiliation for self-protection and social control
  5. Disgust to get rid off
  6. Dissmell to pull away and keep distance.

 

Try this:

Look at your diary over your feelings and compare to the 9 feelings. Which feelings:

– Do you often have

– Would you like to have more of

– Would you like to have less of.
