MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

In a society that promotes gratitude and positivity, there is pressure to suppress or conceal negative feelings.

Acceptance of negative emotions involves not trying to change how we feel but taking them for what they are.

Acceptance doesn't mean handing yourself over to a stressful, negative situation. We need to accept death, but we don't need to suffer through unfair treatment.
