the upsides to negative emotions and the power of acknowledging them
Yes, you read the title right, there’s an upside to negative emotions.
This may be surprising because avoiding them appears to be the most rational thing to do. Feelings such as disappointment, anger, and frustration can all lead to stress, so they are often labelled as ‘unhealthy’. But contrary to popular belief, negative emotions, no matter how uncomfortable they are to deal with, can do us good.
