I was told something similar, growing up. I see a T who helps me to figure out my emotions and lets me know that its OK to have them even if I don't know where they are coming from. She also told me yesterday that I need to remember that the emotions are just feelings and that the feelings can't hurt me. Not sure if that helps. You could post your own thread here in this section asking for advice.

Excellent!! Thanks so much for posting that! My old T used to tell me the same thing all the time.

I've always had a difficult time separating feelings from reality in certain situations.
It really does help to constantly reassure ourselves that feelings cannot hurt us.

Re: Coping with emotions

Hi to everyone! I am new to this site and feel I will be able to gain some very helpful & insightful information from you. I have extreme difficulty identifying emotions. I feel the first step to understanding yourself (at least for me) is to be able to identify what you are feeling before you can begin to know what your needs are. I wish you all a sense of calmness and peace within. We all so deserve it
