Whenever we are feeling negative and depressed, we tend to look inwards and complain about what we don't have or can't have. Why can't we have a better job with a better pay? What can't we afford a holiday like our neighbour? Why can't I have skills like that guy who can bring in a million a year or what can't I be like that her who is so beautiful and have no physical flaws?
When you are feeling this way, it's best to look at what you have - a roof over your head, 3 meals on the table, a supportive family, good friends, hands and legs so that you can earn a living, a face with complete features so that you can see, hear, speak or breathe. Learning to be grateful can start from these little things and you will soon stop thinking negatively.
