There are many anger-producing thoughts which we tend to think are feelings.
When we say..”I feel…
abandoned
attacked
blamed
betrayed
cornered
criticized
ignored
insulted
intimidated
invalidated
left out
let down
manipulated
misunderstood
neglected
pressured
put down
rejected
threatened
unimportant
unseen
unheard

We are actually expressing thoughts, not feelings, about what we think others are doing to us. It is more accurate to say…
I think you are rejecting me and when I think that thought I feel angry, sad, lonely. I want to trust that you care about me.
