Should We ALWAYS Be Positive? Is It Wrong to Get Angry or Be Sad?

My clients often confuse being positive with the idea that we should never have any negative emotions, such as anger or sadness.  There is a huge difference between these two ideas.  Negative emotions are normal and healthy.  We have a full range of emotions from happiness on one end to hurt and anger on the other.  It is okay to let yourself feel these emotions.  When we let ourself feel these emotions, instead of denying or repressing them, which is the cause of many mental health issues, we give ourselves the opportunity to learn from them.  They are signs and they can be used to guide ourselves to a more fulfilled and satisfied life.  This is how I help my clients to use these so called “negative” emotions in a positive way.
