Could your negative self-talk be your greatest gift?

Have you ever been in a dark place and some helpful soul has suggested that you ‘be positive!’

It seems to make good sense. After all, who wants to wallow in negativity or worry? The idea of being positive is to turn our back on the doom and gloom, and focus on moving towards a happier and more upbeat state of mind.

That’s why so many of us have created excellent strategies to cope with our negativity.

But what if your negative self-talk contains a special gift that your be positive attitude is masking from view? Sound a little far-fetched? If so, let me clarify this concept.
