Plutchik's Wheel of Emotions

 



It's often hard for abuse survivors to identify our emotions, which makes it hard to heal from the trauma and to rebuild our lives, not to mention communicating with others. The image above was created by Robert Plutchik as a part of his Psychoevolutionary Theory of Basic Emotions. However, it's helpful even aside from the theory, as a basic tool to identify what you feel. Feel free to bookmark :)


Do not let spacious plans for a new world divert your energies from saving what is left of the old.
