“The unhappiest people in this world are the people who care the most about what everyone else thinks.”
Many of us want to be right!
We think we are right.
We try to be right.
We even try to convince others that we are right. It may be because it elevates our social status, or own our self-esteem, or because we are perfectionistic and being wrong is equated to being bad.
It is our desire to want to be right that might be the reason we subconsciously choose negative thinking.
There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.
‘Some day the negative voice inside you will have nothing left to say.’
Positive thinking isn’t about expecting the best to always happen, but accepting that whatever happens is the best for the moment.
