I am finding the idea that "my feelings can't be wrong" to be very useful to me right now.
Thinking it through, the idea that feelings could be wrong is a kind of category error. Wrong is a word that we use for a jigsaw puzzle. That is the wrong piece to fit there.
We try to analogise to people - I am the wrong person to fit with you. This is not the same situation. We then try to analogise to feelings -this feeling is the wrong one for the objective that I have.
This is different because there is no other jigsaw piece feeling to put into its place. Feelings do not work like that. A feeling is entirely created by and linked to its context. For the same context, the same feeling. A feeling cannot be wrong.
