Funny you should say that, lar-lar. Positive thinking has always been my way, even in the direst of situations (and there have been MANY of those - far too many to even think of now) but I've always kept the positive optimistic outlook - until once ... 2 years ago to be precise to this month. One day it just left me, I found myself at the lowest ebb I could ever have thought possible - and I could not, no matter hard I tried, bring myself back up. I dismissed every positive experience there was and for once in my life I was focusing 100% on all things negative. Hopeless... the only time ever that I stopped believing in myself, and questioned my very existence.

It was at that very point that something happened to turn my life around - THAT was the point that I had my visit from spirit - and got a very definite positive answer to my very desperate negative question.

positive thinking is something i am trying to harness all the time lately. it does so help to look at things from every angle to see there are pluses as well as minuses.
after going on holiday lately it sent me downwards as it was hard to bare without john. exposing yourself to more pain and boy it was tough. only an hour ago i realised that it has made me all the stronger as the experience albeit painful had a purpose too in that i had an obstacle to overcome and came through it in one piece, just. at the time you just feel pain but without realising it you are healing and becoming stronger because of it in the long term.

I think if you're basically a nervous person who is well acquainted with fear, it is harder to be positive. I know it's the right way to be but sometimes it's impossible. I've had clinical depression twice in my life and nothing could change my negativity. I would lie in bed at night and try to think of happy things but the sad or frightening things just kept coming back. This is the difference between just feeling down or low and the clinical kind which is caused by lack of the chemical, seratonin in the brain.It's the chemical which the brain should produce to give you the "feel good" factor. If that's not happening,no amount of attempting to feel positive will make the slightest difference. Only counselling and antidepressants can help and even with both, it can still take months or years before you are capable of looking on the bright side of life. The depression leads to floods of tears and the fear leads to panic attacks.

Sorry to spout all that out but I think it's relevant here. I'm glad to add that I'm not like that these days and I do relish the good things in my life. The tendancy to depression is, to a certain extent, hereditary but can hit anyone especially during or after a long spell of anguish or difficulty.
It's OK. I'm still lol Smile

good point that...
I knew someone who was clinically depressed and it seemed an effort just to be alive never mind go through rituals of positive thinking.But i dont have a good knowledge of that type of depression but i just wonder if it maybe has helped even the worse of the worse i dont know.
And oh boy,im not going to moan here but ive had to put it into practice so much  Rolling Eyes
For the first time i read the comments tonight on find maddie webpage and i come away too sad  Sad it did make me thankful for what i do have. Smile
