The Importance of Understanding Emotions and Feelings...What's the difference?
Emotions are a physiological, automatic, unconscious state in your body. Emotions are deep and abstract. Feelings are more tangible, we are aware of them and express them by language. To visualize it....If you were a tree, emotions are the whole tree in its entirety, and feelings are the leaves and the branches of the tree.
For example, emotions can be described as a deep, heavy, or empty sensation inside, while feelings are sadness and despair.
