Now in this world in which we live there are so many things that van cause us to be negative, but what we need to understand is that those things are out of our hands, what we can do is pray and do our part. Life is what we make it so we need to be thankful for what we have and do all that we can to stay happy and be positive at all times. Thanks for sharing your awesome post.

    Hello there,

    Dealing with negative thoughts can be a very frightening and difficult task.
    Before we notice, we can be drawn into a sea of negativeness.
    That is why the techniques you describe must be applied.
    I always tent do stay positive and to think positively but you have ot admit that it simply cannot work in any situation, especially when one is under a heavy stress.
    However i do believe that we can change our behavior, one step at a time.

      I agree with you completely, being positive and motivated is the first step to rid ourselves from negative thinking

    I have panic disorder and OCD. Two very difficult things to live with. Some days are great, others not so much. The OCD can be overbearing and send me into panic attacks. Vice versa, my anxiety can exacerbate my OCD. I do find that the busier I stay the better. I have gone on medication in the past but I never liked it, always looking for encouragement and ways to get around medicating. Love finding self improvement websites. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank You,

      I am sorry Jen to hear you are experiencing these two health problems, medications should be a last resort in my opinion when all else fails but many people take the easy route by going on meds which are not healthy since they are not natural and mix well with our body chemistry
