Talking in general “feeling embarrassed” means “feeling negative emotion” which means “not feeling positive emotion”. I know you might say that “feeling negative emotion” is the same as “not feeling positive emotions” so why should I write it twice? Just to add some text to this article? Well nope. You see, sometimes we feel negative because we do not know which positive emotion to feel. But now you know because I have enumerated above the positive emotions for you to focus on.
Also in general, feeling negative emotion of any kind, means that you do not feel quite happy for the moment. So take this into consideration also. And one more tip: happiness is closely connected with an overall feeling of contentment and most important with a feeling of being grateful. So if you want to make yourself happier start writing on a piece of paper a list of gratitude (at least 3 things from yesterday, 3 for the work you do and 3 for yourself). This will refocus your mind on positive aspects of your life. We all have some of these, don’t worry! Once your mind is refocused, you can easily connect with your heart, where all the joy is.
