         More Information Green: I feel sad. 
VRP: I am not happy. Green: I feel sad.
Saying, "I am not happy," is yet to report whatever Feeling that I may be experiencing at the time. The receiver of the statement has the job of guessing the speaker's actual Feeling, therefore operating in the Rescuing role.

An example of such Rescuing-the-Victim guessing can be found in a VRP definition of love: "Love is knowing what I want before I tell you and doing what I want before I ask, because if I do ask, and then you do it, it's obvious that you only did it because I asked, and not because you really wanted to."
Sad is a Feeling, an emotion, something that I might actually be experiencing inside of myself.
