Feelings, by Faith Winters, LPC, ACS

Learning to express how you feel is an important part of a healthy life. It can help you to have better relationships and get along better at work. Being able to recognize and state how you feel in words may  lower your own sense of anger or being frustrated or overwhelmed.
