Try practicing positive thinking patterns vs. negative thinking patterns. Some people automatically go to negative thought patterns and think the worst, instead of thinking the positively thinking the best. When people think the worst automatically then the worst case scenario usually plays out because they unwittingly push for that without ever knowing they are doing it.
People who think the best case scenario usually have good things happen to them because their thought process helps play it out positively.
The next time someone says something to you stop and take note if you are thinking worst case or best case scenario. This will give you insight to your thought process.
If you need help with negative thought patterns please call Affordable Counseling Center in Brandon or Tampa Florida at 813-260-8892.
