‘I think it’s wrong’ vs. ‘It just feels wrong.’
How much harder work is first option vs. the second one?
When you are struggling with yourself – or, more likely, over a point with someone else and you tell them what you’re thinking, they’re probably going to continue to argue their case.
If, however, you use one of the second expressions, they won’t try to change your mind, because they can’t disagree with your feelings.
Sometimes, it’s how it is – not necessarily right, not necessarily wrong, good, bad or ugly. Things just feel right or they don’t and we can’t explain it.
These words are a powerful tool, can save a lot of energy and a great deal of heartache.
