17 Negative Emotions With Quotes On How To Deal With Them

Life is like a roller coaster, full of ups and downs. It’s normal to experience emotions like sadness, frustration and anxiety. Just make sure you don’t get stuck in negativity that prevents you from moving forward. Here are 17 common negative emotions and inspiring quotes to help you overcome them.

Anger

“What angers us in another person is more often than not an unhealed aspect of ourselves. If we had already resolved that particular issue, we would not be irritated by its reflection back to us.” – Simon Fuller

Bitterness

“Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.” – Charles Jones

Confusion

“The answers you seek never come when the mind is busy, they come when the mind is still, when silence speaks loudest.” – Leon Brown

Despair

“Fight to keep going, to get through all the crap that seems so thick there is nowhere to go and no way to get through it… there is always a way. And that way is forward, just keep striving to move forward whether it’s one step at a time or five. Just don’t stay idle in all the thickness, it will devour you.” – Cathy Gipson

Disappointment

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe

Embarrassment

“The embarrassment of a situation can, once you are over it, be the funniest time in your life. And I suppose a lot of my comedy comes from painful moments or experiences in life, and you just flip them on their head.” – Miranda Hart

Fear

“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.” – C. JoyBell C.

Grief

“Don’t be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.” – Brian Jacques

Hatred

“We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.” – Mitch Albom

Impatience

“Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you.” – John De Paola

Loneliness

“You’re only lonely if you’re not there for you.” – Phil McGraw

Unsurety

“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

Pain

“Much of the pain in life comes from having a life plan that you’ve fallen in love with, but that doesn’t work out. Having to find a new life plan hurts. The trick is not to become too attached to any particular life plan and to remember that there is always a better, EVEN-HAPPIER life plan out there somewhere.” – Karen Salmansohn

Regret

“We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present.” – Marianne Williamson

Sadness

“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” – Hellen Keller

Unworthiness

“You are perfect exactly as you are. With all your flaws and problems, there’s no need to change anything. All you need to change is the thought that you aren’t good enough.” – J. Cole

Worry

“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” – Dalai Lama XIV
