Today’s Word: upset

May 9, 2018   =========

☆  upset  腹をたてて


If you say you are upset, you mean that you are unhappy or disappointed because something unpleasant has happened to you. I usually think that upset is similar to sad in meaning, and yes, you can use it for that meaning, however it is more like the meaning of distressed, bothered, troubled or worried. Here are some examples of it in use:

She looked so upset after the meeting.
After he left, I felt very upset.
The kids were terribly upset about their parents’ divorce.
Sorry to hear you’re upset. (This week’s useful phrase)
There’s no need to get upset!

Can you use upset in a sentence?
