I am. You are?

Published 2020-05-17

When we describe how we're feeling we say "I am angry", "I am upset", "I am X"

But you aren't angry nor upset. You are feeling angry or upset. Describing emotions the way we currently do is incorrect in that it equates and identifies our state of being with those emotions. You aren't those emotions. You're experiencing those emotions.

You aren't angry, you're experiencing anger.
