Fear, envy and rage

Was this directly attributable to gratitude? Or would the positive effect have been attainable with mere positive thinking? Finally, the studies do not meet all standards for scientific studies today. Against the background of these questions, the researchers presented the thesis that gratitude among the positive emotions correlates particularly with well-being because it has a social side. The subjects were grateful for the things they had received from others. They were grateful for external circumstances and people who positively influenced their lives.

And indeed, a more accurate survey of the participants revealed that the social ties were further strengthened by the gratitude of the grateful, and the grateful also saw greater progress in motivation and achievement of important goals.
