Or do you think they all are useful for some purpose?

Sara explains:

"You might describe some of your emotions as positive and others as negative, because the ways in which emotions make you feel. 

Emotions are not necessarily good or bad. 

In fact, there are many ways in which those so-called negative emotions are just useful to you as the positive ones."

Sara explains:

"Imagine ignoring your emotions and what they make you feel.

If you did, you would not be disgusted by eating something that was rotten, you wouldn't be scared in front of a hungry lion, and you might not react if a friend would punch you.

You wouldn't even care if someone likes you or about winning a match!

So, one purpose of emotions is to provide you with information about a situation that can help you to respond and make decision."
