Ewwwww…. Disgust. I have to admit that is not a pleasant emotion. But it’s not supposed to be. Disgust keeps us from doing things that are detrimental to ourselves – like eating rotten meat or accepting disease spreading behavior. Beware disgust’s stronger alias, contempt, it can be a relationship killer.
Disgust also includes boredom, distaste, revulsion, repugnance, aversion, contempt, nausea, and abhorrence.
Tracking how you are feeling, even when disgusted, helps improve emotional awareness. WeFeel is a great way to track emotion, journal and share.
