resentment
hostility
hatred
self-hatred
depression
hopelessness
shame
hope

optimism
worry
mistrust
paranoia

excitement
irritation

criticism
from within this tempest of emotion, you react;
your thinking is distorted by judgmental feelings
secondary emotions
“it shouldn’t be, it has to be, it could have been…”

[yellow text box transcript]
observe without judgment
pause
identify the primary emotion you are feeling
accept your emotion just as it is
remember that this too shall pass
from this place of acceptance, you choose
how to respond or make a decision
mindfulness
“it is what it is.”
