When looking at a photograph, what’s the first thing you notice? Do you immediately focus on someone’s pot belly or discoloured teeth? When you post a photo of yourself where your skin isn’t perfect, do people tend to comment on your acne or freckles?
This isn’t how we are naturally wired; it’s something we have trained ourselves to do. We often tend to focus on the problems in every situation, which can skew our perspective.
However, life can be better if we focus on the positives. By becoming “glass half full” people, we can cultivate optimism and happiness.
