Emotions Are Positive

Types-of-Positive-EmotionsWhen we think about emotions, we tend only to think about the negative ones – fear, anger and distress. But this is because the mass media over-emphasizes negative emotions and underplays positive ones, so we often neglect or fail to recognize the positive aspects of everyday life. Our positive emotions are as varied and subtle as our negative ones.
