The Magic of Weasel Words

How can you speak about emotions with people who don’t want to talk about them?

 

In this video, Karla McLaren introduces the concept of “stress” as a weasel word that people use to avoid or hide from their emotional awareness.

“Stress is an emotional reaction. To use the word stress is a way to hide emotional awareness from ourselves.”

Luckily, you can increase your vocabulary and better understand how you’re feeling — and what’s bothering you. And if people don’t want to talk about emotions directly, you can use weasel words to keep a flow of emotional awareness in the conversation.
