I learned in the Negative emotion workshop this week that an urge can go into feeling line in the model as an “urgent desire.” Can we leave “urgent desire” in the feeling line or should we further define it as to the emotion that caused the urgent desire? To me, “urgent desire” doesn’t allow me to as easily fill out the actions line.

For me, it is a little eye-opening to think that an urge is a feeling as I have never looked at it that way. I always think of it as something bad that has to be controlled. In typing this now, I see how that thinking is not serving me, because I am almost afraid of urges and we should allow every emotion to not have it control us.
