When people receive bad news from the doctor, they typically get a second opinion.
No one wants to waste time, energy, and resources working themselves into a frenzy because of an oversight. The only thing worse than a negative judgement is a hasty negative judgement. Bad conclusions are bad, but rash conclusions are very expensive.
Does that make sense?
If so, then take that same logic and apply it to your thoughts the next time you arrive at a negative conclusion like “what a horrible day” or “things will never improve.”
Discouragement can get very expensive. So before you spend your time, energy, and resources being disheartened because of a bad conclusion you’ve drawn about your life, it may be worth getting a second opinion.
