4 Smart, Effective Ways to Shift Your Perspective on Negativity

Our perceptions of our experiences as negative can affect our lives on every level. Labeling our experiences as negative has the power to ruin relationships, decrease work performance, and increase stress levels. The good news is that you can balance your negativity bias by shifting your mindset.

The Paradox of Healing.

And that’s super true. But I’ve found that one of the most difficult of paradoxes to grasp, and one the most important if not the most important, is the paradox of healing. It’s a beast, this one. But why, you may be asking, wouldn’t someone WANT to heal? Why would someone CHOOSE to remain in pain, to hurt, to hide from healing? And I could give you a slew of theories, you could pick one and apply it to yourself and go from there. But there’s really only one answer: fear. Fear of pain.
