Stress, Negative Emotions, and Health
Science is developing more and more evidence that shows negative emotions affect your health. Anxiety, stress and resentment actually weaken your immune system. Once your immune system is depressed, you’re much more vulnerable to all kinds of opportunistic diseases and sickness.

Because people who use those words too much, have a narcissistic self-focus. And when you’re worried about yourself all the time – you’re worrying all the time!
