不安 (bù​ān)​
CC-CEDICT: unpeaceful / unstable / uneasy / disturbed / restless / worried

Sometimes I want to use the opposite adjective to 不安 (with the meaning 不不安), but I'm not sure what to use. It's likely not 不不安 nor just 安, but there's a lot of other possibilities like 安静, 安宁, 安详, etc., but none seem to be a great fit.

Question: What is the opposite of 不安?

  • It's 安宁, since 不安 means 不安宁 in Chinese-Chinese dictionary. 安宁 means 心情安定、平静, i.e., calm and free from worry. – Bosai Apr 24 at 0:37
  • Consider adding a specific example – Mou某 Apr 24 at 13:27
  • 不不安=安, as in 安啦! – joehua May 12 at 13:58

不安 mean uneasy, restless. The close opposite is 鎮定, which means a person with a stable mental state when facing either expected or unexpected events (can be any mind-stimulating event but usually bad things or news).

The complete opposite is 安然, which means at ease.

Depending on context, it could be 心安, 放心,安心,安然,etc.

E. g.

这件事让我感到不安 vs 他做事我放心.

事情的结果让我心安.

不安,不安心:worried

Therefore, the opposite would be:

安心

不=not 安=safe

so opposite of 不安 is 安

Simple! 平安 (Know this because a Buddhist monk wrote this on my hand.)
