Nenothtu: Emotions are emotions, and all have their place if properly managed - none are "negative" of themselves, they just "are". Any "negativity" associated with them is manufactured, and negativity can be and is associated with any of them. You classify "love" as "positive", yet I have seen it frequently used as a weapon, which I would classify as "negative".

Perhaps their time might be better used in finding out WHY they inspire such anger, rather than running away from it.

During his time on Earth Guru Nanak was revered by both Hindus and Muslims.
