In Irish When You Talk About Emotion

In Irish When You Talk About Emotion
In Irish when you talk about emotion, you don’t say, ‘I am sad’. You’d say, ‘sadness is on me’ ‘tá bron orm’.
And I love that because there’s an implication of not identifying yourself with the emotion fully. I am not sad, it’s just that sadness is on me for a while.
Something else will be on me another time, and that’s a good thing to recognise.
