“My feelings were hurt” is a phrase very commonly used. We even use it when we talk to our children. “Did someone hurt your feelings?” It’s interesting when you think about it. Instead of asking, “What happened and how are you feeling about it?” and helping your child sort out their exact feelings, we lump them all together.
Many of us carry that lumpy mess of “hurt feelings” into our adulthood. Instead of saying, for example, “I want you to ask me what I think, or what I’d like, instead of assuming you know,” you might say, “You hurt my feelings all the time and you don’t even realize it.”
So today we’ll focus on how to clean up those ” hurt feelings” and express them in much clearer, healthier ways – that hopefully can lead to much better results.
