A native English man whose father had Alzheizmer's years ago tells about his school years when he had to leave his mom - for university - with his mentally ill father. He tells about how he felt those years leaving mom behind, and he says:
I didn't feel right leaving mom.
That sounded unusual to me, because it is the leaving that he didn't find right. In other words, it is the leaving that did not give the feeling of rightness. In English some things may not feel right, so we say "it doesn't feel right" but as humans when we say I don't feel right, it means as if you did wrong in a test or an exam. So, instead I would say
It did not feel right leaving mom.
So, do you think it is wrong to say "I didn't feel right leaving mom." or are both sentences correct?
