I really struggled to put words to my emotions while doing therapy, I still have trouble, i know how I feel but cant find the right word to communicate it to others. In South Africa men do not "do" emotions, that is for woman - we still need to evolve as we are from Mars and women from Venus. I'm setting up the webpage and have been reseaching and putting together articles that would assist male survivors. It will take time before men speak out in South Africa, so the webpage needs to be comprehensive as it will need to a
have sufficient information to assist them. So here is a list of emotions to help survivors find the word that best describes the way they feel. Before I finalize it, please let me know if any have been left out. Can't find an emotion with a X.

I would add disconnected and stoic. While not really the true emotion, both are very much valid feelings.

I have never heard of stoic, so I had look up what it meant: One who is seemingly indifferent to or unaffected by joy, grief, pleasure, or pain. Great word.

Thanks Blue1966

Thanks for the list

xenophobic

Not to sure if I agree if this is an emotion, it is a form of prejudice. it is visual in South Africa, mainly prejudice to fellow Africans from other countries.

xenpphobia is basically fear:
"xenophinic - unreasonably fearful of or hating anyone or anything foreign or strange."

I don't know is it "real" emotion, but hey some letters are emotionless wink

Here is terrible good article about braking pattern of destructive behavior which includes list of emotions:
