Every emotion has degrees, from diminished to fiercely intense. Different words have different temperatures. Monitor your language and make sure your language isn’t minimizing or exaggerating the intensity of emotions.
Match your words to the actual intensity of your emotions.
–> Are you feeling blue, stressed, heartbroken, dejected, or depressed?
–> Are you feeling satisfied, glad, relieved, delighted, or elated?
–> Are you feeling apprehensive, nervous, frightened, panicky or terrified?
–> Are you feeling adequate, capable, confident or powerful?
