Such a compelling comment. When can people be upset? When is it healthy to have a negative emotional response to a truly lousy situation?
I would actually reframe this question. There is no objective "right or wrong" here. There are situations that are truly miserable that we all live through. And times to feel the entire range of emotions we can experience. That said, we do have a choice far more often than we want to admit about how we respond to life situations. And the way we respond will influence our life satisfaction and daily, lived experience. My hope is that people become more aware of how we respond to any given life circumstance and actively attempt to reframe negative thoughts when they do not serve us well.

Thank you for the questions and comment!
