A Blob Tree activity for Group-Work and to do yourself - give it a go please?

My question is relating to the 6 BLOBS above.
The one we find the hardest to understand - to LOVE even.

Think of a a person who is bruised.
Someone who is going through a rough time.
pick one of the Blobs above 
which illustrates best 
how that person FEELS?
If you touch the screen physically - 
it makes more/greater impact on you.

Did you do it?
If you did that
you more of a 
than an  
(if you only read those words
and didn't engage with the activity
you will not 'get' the Blobs - they only become alive
when experienced)

Pick which BLOB which  is you  right now - 
the nearest to your  FEELINGS RIGHT NOW.
TOUCH IT ...................
(go on - 
even if people are watching > TOUCH ONE)

('Motion changes emotion'
That is why I ask you to move/touch/get in touch with)

The Blobs help many people to identify their feelings.
Even young children who are not emotionally literate.
They can point/touch and OWN their feelings.

This is ALL GOOD this is for me - and YOU I believe.
We need to be in-touch with our own feelings
to be able to empathise with others BHP's.

Feelings are signals and nothing to be afraid of.
I had a big signal this morning.
I need to dig into it.
Put a name to the feeling and decide why
I have that feeling.
They are mine and I will not run away

Now one last exercise.
Read the quote below
then touch the Blob above
which is nearest this BHP.
Doing this develops empathy.
AND that is great in my book.

"My father 
always made me know I was fat.
I could never make him love me.
I decided nobody would love me 
unless I was perfect.
I felt ugly, 
as if I was falling down a dark hole."
Jane Fonda
