Negative emotions can drain you of your energy because you invest that energy into the negative feelings that are pulling you down. Meaning, you’re not down because someone put you down, or because you were born like this, you are down because you focus on the emotions that put you down.
The trick is not to never have negative emotions. That’s not real. The trick is to use the emotions, positive and negative, as cues to take action. Emotions are calls to action. How you feel will make or break your life.
Those painful emotions can be our best friends. They are sending us signals that what’s happening is wrong and that we need to make a change.
If you don’t listen to emotions, they will find a way to make you listen, they’ll erupt, and get more and more intense. The best way to deal with emotions is then to learn from and use them!
