Why Feeling Cards?

Brené Brown writes the following in her book ‘Atlas of the Heart’.

“Over the course of five years we collected surveys from more than seven thousand people (to list all of the emotions that they could recognise and name as they were experiencing them). The average number of emotions named across the surveys was three. The emotions were happy, sad and angry.

When I think about this data, I think back to a quote from the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein that I came across in college: “The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” What does it mean if the vastness of human emotion and experience can only be expressed as mad, sad, or happy?

Language is our portal to meaning-making, connection, healing, learning, and self-awareness.  Having access to the right words can open up entire universes. When we don’t have the language to talk about what we’re experiencing, our ability to make sense of what’s happening and share it with others is severely limited.  Without accurate language, we struggle to get the help we need, we don’t always regulate or manage our emotions and experiences in a way that allows us to move through them productively, and our self-awareness is diminished.

Additionally, we have compelling research that shows that language does more than just communicate emotions, it can actually shape what we’re feeling…when our access to emotional language is blocked, our ability to interpret incoming emotional information is significantly diminished.  Likewise, having the correct words to describe specific emotions make us better able to identify these emotions in others, as well as to recognise and manage the emotional experiences when we feel them ourselves.”
