Emotions are a guessing game
17.05.2021 by Tesmo

I thought I was a very frustrated person, but in the light of discovering what alexithymia is, I realised I've been wrongly labelling plenty of experiences as frustration for a lack of understanding
It takes other people pointing out my own reactions and how I am probably feeling for me to consider that maybe I'm not frustrated but excited or something
Do/did you have a go-to emotion that you label most of your experiences with?
