When Things Go Wrong!

When Things Go Wrong!

There are days when all of us “get down”, “things go wrong”, we have a little “pity-party”, or we just “get our undies in a bundle” and feel upset, etc, etc. Normally, we find a way to snap-out-of these negative mental states and get back on a positive track.

However, some of us have learned to think that the past has always been bad, the present is bad and the future is certain to be bad. In the field of psychopathology “mind-set” is called the Depressive Triad. People with this level of negativity set up a self-fulfilling prophesy for them selves. As a result of their dark attitude, expectations, decisions and resulting choices things often turn out badly for them.

This of course confirms their world view and further strengthens their depressive mind. This vicious cycle can easily lead to a Major Depression  often accompanied by a Generalized Anxiety Disorder, perhaps including panic attacks. This level of severity should be treated by a psychologist or a credentialed professional psychotherapist.

But, whichever level of negative thinking that we might engage in, veteran Travis Mills has a message for us that just might transform our lives.

Please take time to view the following. This video was sent to me by Gordon Jones, an American veteran and patriot.
