"Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become your character.
And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.' - Mark Manson
What we think, we become.
Reality is not neutral. We are always passing judgment on what happens around us. You and I can face the same event, yet will react differently - our thoughts shape our reality, not the other way around.
That's why most people suggest we think positively - it has become an oversimplified approach to make us feel better.
"Be positive" can be terrible advice.
Telling someone who's sad or depressed that positive thoughts will change their mental state, can be detrimental. Similarly, being overly optimistic can blind our reality.
Positive thinking is not what you think. We must embrace our whole self, not just the bright side.
