If, as Marc Brackett eloquently writes in his book, you’ve been given ‘Permission to feel’ then it’s amazing what you can uncover! ❤️
Last evening I wrote an email to those who have taken part in a survey & asked to be kept informed. I wished to thank them for their contribution & let them know that we have a new page built on the Innervate website at https://innervate.co.uk/emotions-survey/
The page is to share some of the initial observations from the survey. Over the last weeks, I’ve looked through the results from a question that asks people to select emotion words. I’ve been filtering the main chart, by key emotion words eg by filtering ‘anxious’ it will then present the frequency (by %) with which other words are selected, by all those who selected anxious. That’s then divided into those who described a significant life event/trauma & those who put n/a to that question ie ‘No Trauma’.
The response so far is relatively low & I know it’s not the perfect ‘research’, but whatever anyone may say about the ‘academic’ value, I believe the observations are hugely insightful. The information can and I hope will, help to bring about change. Like Marc, I wish people to be more carefully listened to & invited to express their feelings through life.
