It’s Important to Separate Feelings and Facts

Spread the love
I often see clients that are confused and have difficulties making sense of their life situation. It is very important to learn to separate feelings from facts. While you may be confused about how you feel and why you feel this way, facts are undeniable.
 
Examples:
  • I feel that he/she lied to me. – Is it a feeling or he/she really lied? If that’s a fact, that would change everything.

  • I feel that I am not valued here. – Is it a feeling or you are really not valued? If that’s a fact, that would change everything.
  • I feel that he/she cheated on me. – Is it a feeling or it really happened? If that’s a fact, that would change everything.
  • I feel that I was used/manipulated/abused. – Is it a feeling or you really were used/manipulated/abused? If that’s a fact, that would change everything.
 
If you are confused about your situation, describe it in writing and then remove the “feeling” parts. The picture will become very clear and it will be easier to make the right choice.
