|Feelings are specific events in the body. The example above (rejected) is something different than a Feeling.
In this case, what is called a Feeling is really a Thought, and an actual Feeling (an emotion or a sensation) has yet to be expressed.
"I feel rejected" is an example of a person being both Persecutor and Victim simultaneously, inviting someone to enter into a drama and play the Rescuer role.
||Feelings are emotions and sensations in the Green Language model.
If I Think that someone has rejected me, then I may Feel a variety of emotions (feelings) depending upon what I may Think or Want from that person.
A couple of examples: If I like the person and Want to spend time with him or her, then I may Feel sad, hurt, lonely, frightened, or even angry. If I have yet to like the person, then I may Feel pleased or relieved that he or she has chosen to spend the time elsewhere.
