Positive thinking in crises can make you sick

Positive thinking in crises can make you sick

eIt doesn’t hurt when psychologists warn against the concept of “positive thinking.” This gives their union reputation. “Positive thinking alone does not help,” family therapist Gerhard Vogel explains online. “The idea rooted in American psychology, that we can actually make changes if we stay in good spirits is misleading.” More than two decades ago, psychiatrist Gunter Schech wrote a book called “Positive Thinking Makes You Sick?! From Dizziness with Dangerous Promises of Success.”

And it is precisely the unconditional expectation of success associated with this behavioral therapy and not just the concept of psychoanalysis that positive thinking books have become so popular. Just think of Dale Carnegie’s longtime salesman “Don’t worry, live!”. The formula for success recipe: Cheer up and you’ll be fine! From this point of view, mindfulness is understood as a behavior that serves to ensure that things run smoothly rather than producing cognitions that conflict with it.

Narcissistic energy helps

Behavioral therapy approaches undoubtedly fulfill their purpose, for example when Carnegie points out ways out of the rumination trap and teaches us to distinguish between fears and facts. Nor is it wrong to realize that the nature of my thoughts can influence reality if that means methods that are somewhat useful for personal crisis management. This misunderstanding of oneself can eventually prove to be very realistic; Narcissistic energy helps rock reality rather than delve into its frustrating contexts.

In general, all these functional methods distract from the inner discovery of truth, which is what psychoanalytic procedures revolve around, as Freud asserts in his work “Limited and Infinite Analysis”, which makes the claim idealistic but makes it clear, that is, “the analytic relationship is based on the love of truth, That is, on acknowledging reality and excluding all appearances and deception. If there is an added psychological value from a crisis or stress that has recently been called a permanent crisis, it is an opportunity to come closer to the truth about yourself. Disappointments always remove deception. Is this why you think negatively?
