Common Negative/Painful Feelings
See also long list of more feeling words
Note from Steve - Since I created this list I have decided it is more useful to think of these feelings as painful rather than "negative." This is the basis for my approach to improving out lives and mental health as I explain in my writing on what I call the Hein Painful Emotions Technique.

Using This List to Help Someone Else
It can be very helpful to show this list to someone. Then ask them to discuss or explain each feeling which applies to them. This can lead to a plan to address each negative feeling and its causes and possible solutions.
In the section on teen suicide there are examples of how this list can be used with teenagers.
