Bonus : Two lists of emotions to help you better express yourself.
Emotions and feelings are often used interchangeably, but they are not exactly the same thing.
Emotions are like a wild rollercoaster ride, they’re intense, thrilling, and over before you know it. Feelings, on the other hand, are like a leisurely bike ride in the park, they’re more relaxed and enjoyable, but they last a bit longer. Emotions are like the automatic response of your body to certain situations, like a reflex. They happen without you even noticing and can make your heart race, make you sweat, and even contort your face in strange ways. Examples of emotions include anger, fear, joy, surprise, disgust, and sadness.
Emotions are more intense and short-lived physiological responses to a specific event or stimulus, while feelings are more enduring and tend to be less intense.
Feelings, on the other hand, are the conscious experience of emotions. They are the thoughts, judgments and interpretations we have about our emotions. Feelings are more enduring than emotions and tend to be less intense. They are the way we experience and describe our emotions to ourselves and others. Examples of feelings include happy, sad, angry, anxious, content, and excited.
In summary, emotions are the automatic physiological responses to a specific event or stimulus and feelings are the conscious experience of emotions.
