  • Analysis

    ‘Unbridled’ can be used in both a positive and negative context to express something that is unrestrained. You can talk of unbridled joy in relation to a happy situation, or unbridled misery in the reverse. It can also be a bit of both. If somebody has unbridled ambition, for example, that could be a positive thing for themselves but a negative for those around them.
