Anxiety is often typified by negative thinking and a lack of self-confidence. Other indicators include avoidance and seeking reassurance.
The theme for this emotion is 'threat or danger' (which may be real or perceived).
Anger & Hurt are closely linked.
Anger is the immediate raw emotional response to frustration or having been wronged in someway. Hurt can be viewed as emotional 'bruising'; it appears when we feel that we have been treated unfairly or badly.
Depression can affect anyone at any time. This emotion appears at times when we experience loss or failure e.g. change in health, unemployment, grief when someone dies etc. Feelings of helplessness & hopelessness are often experienced together with self-isolation.
Guilt occurs when we feel over-responsible for a situation and then blame ourselves if something goes wrong. Sometimes people resort to alcohol etc to deal with feelings of guilt. Shame is very secretive and happens when a personal (and perceived shameful) revelation has taken place. Both are secretive emotions and may not be obvious to others.
Jealousy & Envy are potentially destructive emotions and often misused terms. Jealously can occur where we feel that there is a threat (real or perceived) to a significant relationship. Indicators include monitoring & testing partners together with the need for reassurance. Envy however is where there is an unhealthy focus and desire regarding someone else's possessions e.g. material, wealth, skills, popularity, beauty etc.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help individuals become more aware of the impact of negative patterns of thinking and behaviour on their relationships, family, friends and work. Through CBT clients learn how to manage their thoughts, emotions and behaviours so that they can get the best out of life.
