Is there any difference in

I feel happy for you.


I am happy for you.

Because there is a difference between

I feel sorry for you.


I am so sorry for you.

Are there any other instances where “to be” and “to feel” have a difference of nuance?

  • Of your four sentences, the first and fourth sound unnatural. I don't think native speakers would use these sentences, typically. – aparente001 Aug 10 at 6:57
