In the field of positive psychology, cultivating positive emotions is encouraged, along with garnering an optimistic outlook on adversity.
After all, usually it’s how we perceive circumstances that determine how we feel about a particular event. If we choose to select thoughts that spin the source of angst in a positive light, we can feel peaceful about what we originally saw as problematic.
While that approach is valid and helpful in obtaining happiness, does it mean you shouldn’t be allowed to experience negative emotions from time to time?
Of course not.
In fact, one may argue that experiencing positivity’s counterpart could even be healthy: it’s all about balance.
