Is it better to use many words, or only a few, when summarising feelings ?

Few-by far, the more erm...well you can read a lot into words when people are talking/describing things, if you list of everything-people are not really going to get the idea!

Oh i'm a bit stuck for what to say myself..its too early in the morning! i've had a speech impediment for the past few days, lol!

when summarising - you try to be concise.

When talking about feelings it is often hard to only say a few words, but if you don't ramble on people listen more because you aren't drowning them in words. Each word gains more meaning if it isn't hidden behind a lot of other words.

the less said the better, otherwise it loses the effect.

I agree with concise and short. Like definitions in the dictionary - the only word used are the only ones needed. They say absolutely everything.
