Negative thoughts can plague us all sometimes. It’s part of the human condition. We evolved to always want more, because our ancestors who were the hungriest for more were the ones who survived. They built better shelters and discovered more effective hunting techniques. We can’t help but think how could things be better. But, unfortunately, since we are so used to focusing on how things could be better, that also means that we focus on how things are not good enough. It’s hard to feel very happy when we look at things that way. But, something cool about the human mind is that we have the gift of self-consciousness. We are aware of our perspective, and so we have the ability to shift it. And, funny enough, when we shift our perspective, sometimes we actually change the real facts of our lives. Here are common negative thoughts, turned on their heads.
