Hey, How You Feeling? Primary and Secondary Emotions Explained!

Have you ever been scared by a friend? Chances are your first, or primary emotion, was fear! That’s perfectly normal, after all, you’re human. But what emotion follows after the initial fear response? Do you get angry because your friend scared you? Where did that anger come from? Was it because you were actually embarrassed that you dropped your phone, or that you let out a string of curse words that would make a sailor blush? Those feelings that swoop in immediately after a reaction are typically called your “secondary emotions” and those keep us away from staying in the present moment. Today we explore the world of primary and secondary emotions, and, how learning where they come from will help you better recognize and deal with them in a more healthy, present, way.

In this episode, Tony refers to the article “What are Primary and Secondary Emotions” by Nadia Khan first posted on Betterhelp.com https://www.betterhelp.com/advice/general/what-are-primary-and-secondary-emotions/
