Karla McLaren developed this Emotional Vocabulary List to support you in developing better emotional awareness, and a stronger connection to the gifts inside each of your emotions.
The Weasel Words! This list also includes the Weasel Words Karla gathered to help you maintain your emotional awareness and honesty even with people who don’t have a large emotional vocabulary yet (or who refuse to utter the real names for emotions). Weasel words can also help you bring up emotional issues without challenging people’s view of themselves as being in complete control every minute of every day (as if that’s a thing)!
A large version of this list is available for free on this site. This portable version was created for the Art of Empathy Card Deck, but people always want more sets to share with their friends and family!
These Emotional Vocabulary Lists are printed in the U.S. on recycled paper with soy-based inks.
