The problem with positive thinking and positive affirmations. Criticism.

Hey there.

Now, positive thinking is all and good. However, I decided to criticize the whole idea, because it is seriously overused.

The problem with positive thinking, positive affirmations and such, is that if done wrong, it simply tries to force the positivity, ignoring the underlying problems. This is a sort of a delusion that people can get in to if they are not careful.

Also, the parts of us that are negative, hold useful information and lessons, so ignoring them is not the wises choice.
