Positive ThoughtsOne of the members of my Facebook group “A Safe Place for Cutters” recently wrote, “hello, it’s been a long time since we talked. I did break my commitment, but just once. it was a long struggle, and i don’t know what all was going on, but i was going to just give up on life. i thank God I had friends with me, and one that called me right in time.
ok, that was the bad, here is the good
i got a job, school is almost over, im spending the night at a friends tomorrow, someone’s giving me clothes..
you see, there is always positive that goes along with the negative, we just hope that there is more positive”.

She is absolutely right. With that kind of attitude she will be successful in her endeavors. Another way of looking at it is to look at negatives as lessons that you need to learn. If you learn the lesson you move forward and if you don’t you stay stuck and keep repeating the same problems over and over.

You must learn to refocus your attention from negative to positive in any given situation.  Every problem will go away. Either it will change or you will. No problem is permanent. It can’t be permanent because everything is in a constant state of flux; everything changes. Worry is useless. Instead of being ready to give in, remember that every problem has a limited life span. Things will get better. Seek to grow.

To a life worth living,

Foresteen Forbes, Psy. D.
