Do you ever have negative thoughts and/or feelings? Does your attitude lean towards the negative side of things? Is the glass half full or half empty? We all have some twisted thoughts from time to time, but if these thoughts are reinforced or continue without being challenged, they will cause increased anxiety, depression, poor performance, difficulties in relationships and other undue stress in your life.
We all have disappointing experiences at times, but when we actively dwell on the negative, we deny ourselves the joy of our accomplishments and the good things that happen.
