Pessimism

Our ultimate purpose in this world is to come close to G-d, which is measured by our ability to maintain a continuous level of joy and contentment. The secret behind achieving and sustaining joy is not to lose perspective on life, by asking, “Where am I?” This technique is particularly important since most of us are prone to pessimism.

The minute something goes wrong in life and we’re faced with a problem or dilemma, we lose heart and begin to view our whole future in a negative light. We begin to panic and our imaginations run wild with thoughts of doom and gloom.

You must train yourself to nip the cycle of negative thinking in the bud, before it takes root in your mind and makes you depressed.
