Negative Thinking Is So Dumb, It Makes Everything Worse For YOU

Spread positivity to make the world a better place.

Negative Thinking Is So Dumb, It Makes Everything Worse For YOU
Thomas Wilson


Right? Then why do we do it so much?

In a world where we are constantly told to do things that we may not want to do, complaining is inevitable. We are often exposed to situations that leave us with stress and pressure on our minds. But to then make these problems known to the world by voicing them out loud in conversation (or posting them on a "Finstagram" account) you're not doing any good for anyone.

All you're doing is spreading negative energy around and people like to be surrounded by positive people!!! So stop, please stop. Negative thinking is the least progressive thing ever and it does you no good!

Think about it. Suppose you're in class and you hate the teacher so much so that all you do is complain about him/her to those around you. You will still have to take the class. You will still have to go see this teacher. All that you're doing is making the situation more unbearable for yourself and those around you!!

Seriously, what is complaining going to do? Even if your complaints are justified, it does you no good. Nothing good can come of it. I think people complain because it gives them a sense of reassurance when things are annoying them.

Or, imagine you're on a plane ride and you're really worried that the plane is going to crash. You start to think negatively as the plane takes off about the fear of crashing. You're really scared now and work yourself into a state of hysteria and yet, you still have a long flight ahead of you.

So why? Why do you keep thinking about crashing? What is the point of all of this negative thinking? All that you're doing is making the experience worse for yourself. And, God forbid, imagine that the plane was to crash... What would your negative thinking do to stop that? Nothing.


Try to be positive at any chance you get! Life will be a lot better that way and those around you will be more attracted to your presence because your personality will be more admirable.

And, if you do have negative thoughts, don't share them! Voicing negative thoughts out loud leads to a spread of negative energy. Obviously, this is easier said than done... but work on it!

I'm no doctor and I wish that I knew the remedy to negative thinking, but here's what I think. I believe that stepping back and taking deep breathes in the middle of unfavorable scenarios can help, and that practicing mindfulness is also another way to change the way you think.

The mind is a powerful thing. I can assure you that the more you think positively, the happier you will be. And, in turn, that positivity will spread and the world will be a happier place!

Please just try to be happy and spread that happiness. Life should be lived! Think with a 'glass half full' mentality and never fail to count your blessings. Nothing in this life is for granted. Thank you for reading. Until next time.

Be Happy :)

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
