Down, is a popular answer. And it’s usually correct. However when we’re trying to become more conscious about what we’re feeling, accuracy is necessary. For instance if you focused on “down” and tried to explicate it more you may use the word, sad, depressed.
Then if you continued to press your mind you may find that it leads to the word despair, a feeling of hopelessness.
Once there, you can begin to figure out what is hopeless, what need you have and how you might be able to get it. Or, if that ship has sailed, you’ll see that you need to talk about it, perhaps with a therapist but more likely with a group, connecting and relating to how others cope with that same thing.
Pin it down, to move forward.
“One can be the master of what one does, but never of what one feels.”
― Gustave Flaubert
