Why we should be grateful for “negative” emotions

Art: Autumn Skye ART

To sadness

Thank you for allowing me to feel

And to be connected to all that surrounds me

To anger

Thank you for reminding me of my strength

And my capacity to defend myself

And speak up for myself and others when necessary

To fear

Thank you for alerting me to potential danger

And for caring about my safety and security

To guilt

Thank you for revealing to me

What is in need of changing, fixing and mending in my life

So that I may respond accordingly

To dissatisfaction

Thank you for empowering me

To grow and evolve

And reach for greater heights

Beyond what I could previously do or be

To confusion

Thank you for showing me

Where I am in need of gaining greater understanding and clarity

And to regret

Thank you for providing a roadmap

To redirect me toward a greater destination

Through showing me what I don’t wish to do or repeat.

I see now

That you are not my enemies

But my greatest teachers

Guiding, assisting and uplifting me.
