I gave this some ponderance when somebody jumped to a negative conclusion about me earlier today. But if others ever express a negative opinion, no matter how provable it might be, they are automatically in the wrong.

Ditto experiences. Compliments, praise or even a mere "good" are hard to find, at best you'll get an "well, I suppose it was okayyyy".

Now, on the balance of probabilities, most happenings are not just ok, they are better, and happenings, like perceptions, are very much coloured by the believer's negativity.

Shawn Achor says in his study of happiness, “Ninety percent of your long term happiness is predicted not by the external world, but by the way your brain processes the world.”

So, you change your brain, or live a life of permanent dissatisfaction, which you constantly expose others, unfairly, to. Making then question their self-worth and wondering why any effort was made, when the outcome is a forgone conclusion.

Kathryn Schulz, “This attachment to our rightness keeps us from preventing mistakes when we absolutely need to; and causes us to treat each other terribly.”

Food for thought.
