‘Mixed emotions’ is a colloquialism for emotional conflict, doubt or uncertainty. ‘Missed emotions’ captures part of the meaning. About 200 ghits:
Being a single parent not receiving child support, I have missed emotions about putting someone in jail for failure to pay…
... that it is awesome! Sure your first day is full of missed emotions and you
are scared to death, but you will do fine.
I was subdued, watching with missed emotions as the children came in and sang for us. www.gavd.co.uk/gavduganda.pdf
Bale left her in a state of missed emotions trying to discern his words, trying to understand the meaning behind them.
We have each taught in the same district for about 15 years. I have missed emotions as does My wife. does anyone teach with their spouse and how is it?
