Have you ever wondered why some people always seem to have a positive outlook on life regardless of challenges and disappointments? Why do others, who seem to have it all, worry, are unsatisfied and judgmental? How each of us responds to our emotions will dictate our views on life. Some of us are more resilient and can let negative situations go easily, while others cling to the pain, stress, and guilt.
Negative emotions, like rage, envy or bitterness, tend to spiral out of control, especially immediately after they’ve been triggered. In time, these sorts of emotions can grow like weeds, slowly conditioning the mind to function on detrimental feelings and dominating daily life.
Those that have problems releasing their negative emotions, though, aren’t out of luck. Through training yourself to be more conscious of how you address your emotions, you can change your behavior leading towards a more positive outlook on life.
Here are some steps you can take to overcome your negative thinking and let your pain go.
