Why do we have mixed feelings? And what can we do about them? We asked Dr Rashida Dungarwalla, a registered psychologist with Flow State Space and The Indigo Project, for answers. Whether you’re changing jobs, going back to school or have lost a friend, having mixed emotions or mixed feelings is really common. On one hand, maybe you’re sad, frustrated or angry, but on the other, there’s part of you that feels a bit relieved or happy. It can be pretty confusing sitting with these ‘opposite’ feelings. Rashida talks about why you might have mixed emotions and what you can do about them.
