You’ll Be Happier If You Let Yourself Feel Bad

“Emotions are naturally short-lived experiences and if we let them wash over us instead of trying to push them away these emotional experiences would actually pass relatively quickly.”

The more you allow yourself to accept your negative emotions as part of life, the easier they become to deal with.

The Cut explains how recent studies have found people who accept their negative feelings are happier and more psychologically healthy than people who try to push back against them.

The findings also suggest even people with high levels of stress in their life are happier when they employ a willingness to accept negative emotions without judgment.
