sharing feelings

I realize that my participants used many different ways to express their feeling regarding online videos that they watched and shared. I am organizing them in groups :

Feeling Love (Affection, Love, Attraction, Desire, Craze, Excitation, Passion, Sympathy)
Feeling of joy (Fun, contentment, proud, happy, humor, pleasure, satisfaction, sensation)
Feelings of sadness (displeasure, insecure, loneliness, giving up,discouragement)
Feelings of anger( hatred, aversion, frustration, disgust, contempt, aggressiveness, anger)
sense of fear (panic, fear, concern)
Feelings of shame ( shame, insult, regret)

I used a list I found online to check if those specific feelings were express. This also made me read again the interviews with an eye for those emotions. And I got to use the text search query to explore the use, context and meaning of words expressing feelings.

The participants brought up their attitudes, feelings and behaviors to the stories they were telling me, creating a dynamic narration that is the result of an active interview (Holstein, 1995)

Below is an example of what I found and what I did not. The one in bold are the strong ones, The strikethrough are missing altogether, and the normal one where present but did not lead to anything.
