Anger and sadness are natural and normal human emotions. You don’t need to make yourself feel bad if you feel them. It becomes a negative cycle that gets really hard to break out of.

When something bad happens, ask yourself if it’s really worth feeling continually down about. Chances are, it’s worth you being upset for a while, but not forever.

Let yourself be angry or sad about your situation for a while, and then you can know that you’ve given yourself time to deal with it properly and normally. Then the next step is moving on, and leaving the negative stuff behind.
