I am feeling…

By Susan David

You are not your feelings.

When you say “I am” it makes you sound as if you are the emotion. Whereas you are you, and the emotion is a data source.

Instead, try to notice the feeling for what it is: “I am feeling anxious” or “I’m noticing that I’m feeling worried.”

This creates critical space between you and the emotion.
