Let's learn some new vocabulary that can help us understand other people.

Fear,disappointment,rage,regret,disgust,despair,,spite,bitterness,nervousness, remorse,guilt and many others are words that describe negative feelings.

Here are some explanations and examples of some of these words.

Resentment” is anger that someone feels about something. Example:

“The reduction in holidays cause a lot of resentment among the staff.”


If you are full of “remorse”, you feel bad about something that you did .
“She was full of remorse for the things that she’d said.

If you have “contempt" for someone or something, you have no respect for
it, or you think that it’s unimportant.

“I’m going to treat that comment with all the contempt it deserves.”


Other expressions and idioms can describe someone's mood .

If you are bent out of shape, you are angry, insulted, annoyed or upset. Here is an example.

“I accidentally spilled tea on Tom’s book, and he got bent out of shape about it.” .

I use sometimes the following one when I am angry. It is to see red.

If you are seeing red, you are furious and extremely angry.

“These prices have customers seeing red.”

You probably often hear this expression.

to make someone's blood boil

If something makes your blood boil, it causes you to feel anger. There is an example...

” Naughty kids and noisy neighbors really make my blood boil.” 

To be  fed up with something, means you are annoyed, or tired of something that you have been experiencing too much of. Example:

I’m fed up with these school rules.

Here is a color idiom that shows sadness. If you feel blue you are sad and very depressed.

If you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, you wake up in a bad mood. In Serbian it is called' Ustati na levu nogu'.

Tell me some expressions or words that are common in your everyday speech connected to negative emotions..

Thanks for reading my article. I hope you learn something new.

Negative emotions are so extremely important for human progress and without them human well-being and health are seriously endangered. If someone not in good mode we say "Did you get up on your left food today?"

Your last line was very interesting. I'll be very happy to know which region are you from? Positive and negative impression always move in a parallel way. If there is any positivity there should be a negative side. You can say it is some kind of ecological balance.

I've heard about Slovenia,from one of my geography classes. I've heard about Slovakia too. If I'm not wrong these two are neighbouring countries isn't it?
