What is it called when you don’t know how you feel?
I have a condition called alexithymia.
The name comes from Greek roots: a-, meaning ‘without’, lexi, meaning ‘words’, and thymia, meaning ’emotions.
‘ Without words for emotions.
That’s a pretty good name for it, because that’s pretty much what it is.
Is it okay to not know what you want?
So, it is okay not to know what you want to do with your life. If you do this, and really think about it, you’ll probably realise just how much you’ve already done with your life. Only you know the intimate details of your existence, but appreciate that everything behind you has worth.
What to do when you don’t know who you are anymore?
Bad things don’t define your identity. Only your thoughts and actions define who you are, and if you don’t recognize yourself anymore, it means you weren’t being fair to yourself.
And now is the time to fix this.
- Get to know yourself (again)
- Make decisions.
- Stay engaged.
How do you comfort someone when you don’t know whats wrong?
To others, that is totally disrespectful and invalidating. use your empathy to understand their feelings. Tell them you can tell they’re upset, and you’re ready to listen if they want to talk about anything. Try to do something that will comfort them, according to what they like.
