I've always been thinking negatively. I guess it was a habit I learned from my parents.

But I'm on the right track, trying to change the way I think. It's a slow turn, but it's already working. I feel happier than ever.

Thank you for this post, I need small reminders that I'm doing the right thing and keeping the change fresh in my mind.

We've found it very helpful to think in neutral terms. Positive and negative are simply labels. Without labels, an event is, what it is. Then, choice kicks-in -- is this something we enjoy, don;t enjoy, want to do, don't want to do, etc. This has been very freeing for us.

Marthe - I used to think negatively too and it did me absolutely no good. As you know, it's very, very hard to change the way you think (especially when it's been engrained in you for a long time!), but it's possible and it's amazing when you make the choice to be positive. I'm glad this post helped to remind you that you're on the right track. It did the same for me!

H&W - I agree that neutral terms are one of the best ways to combat internal struggles of the mind. When we label things (as so many of us do), we limit ourselves. I like the idea of thinking of things in a neutral way and then choosing how to react to them from an less biased perspective. Great point!

Oh my goodness, I am so glad I came across this site! I have struggled with depression for many years caused mainly, I think, by my negative thinking and low self-esteem. I am a big fan of Louise Hay I have several of her audios. I am going to subscribe to your blog now as I need it in my life!!! x

Nic - So glad you found Positively Present too! Like you, I was in a pretty bad spot when I started the blog and I've come a long way since then, mostly as a result of thinking positively. Thanks for subscribing. I hope my content continues to inspire you!
