Feelings can be very confusing sometimes

There was once a time when I had this mysterious feeling that I didn’t recognise. I didn’t even know what to call it, though I thought it might be boredom. The thing is, I can never really be sure whether a feeling is what I think it is, because I have no way to show the feeling to someone else and verify it’s name. 

That’s the problem with feelings. It’s really hard to show someone your feelings properly. It’s equally as hard to describe them using words. Words are in fact such a horrendously inadequate means to convey emotions to another person that we can never be really sure whether they truly understand how we feel, even after we express our feelings to them. 

I don’t know if it is possible for someone to hear or feel another person’s emotions without the other person saying a word. At least, I don’t think I’ve met anyone who could do this. 

If I met someone like that, I’d have loved to ask them to explain to me what it is I was feeling, because I had no clue.  Maybe I wouldn’t even need to ask them, because they would already know how I felt and automatically tell me what I wanted to hear. 

I never did get to find out what that feeling was really called.I guess I’ll never really know. I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing. Maybe it isn’t. The problem is when I don’t know whether something is good or bad, I don’t know whether to be happy about it or not.

Feelings can be very confusing sometimes.
