Remembering our personal growth that resulted from negative life experiences makes new obstacles easier to embrace.
A heart can only be broken or remain shattered through repeated negative interpretations of a negative experience.
Negative experiences don't create fears, doubts, anger, grudges, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, jealousy, stress or depression; one's repeated negative interpretations of them do.
Repeated positive interpretations of one's negative experiences are the greatest medicines for stress and depression.
While winners were fully engaged with writing some great chapters in their lives, failures were busy trying to edit their past negative experiences.
A lot of people blame their negative feelings on their negative experiences, but little do they know that their negative feelings are nothing but the products of their negative interpretations of their negative experiences.
A negative mind sees happiness as a mystery. So it swims from coast to coast searching for it with a doubtful mindset. Sooner or later, it gives up on it, and comes to conclusion that happiness is an impossible task to achieve. But a positive mind sees happiness as a matter of deciding to focus on the positive side of its life's experiences instead of allowing its negative experiences to hold it in everlasting bondage.
A happy life has never been the outcome of dragging the negative experiences that belong in one's past into one's present and future.
