For some reason I can't day dream about good things like being rich, getting married and losing weight. But its so easy for me to day dream about bad things. People tell me to think positive but I just can't, I literally try but my mind just go black. Does anyone have this problem

I dont day dream about these things. I just try to make positive actions - that's it.

What does thinking help things??

Thinking use to change my moods and give me hope just for me. I kind of believe in the law of attractions but now my thoughts are negative it makes me depress and sad

I used to have a lot of anxiety and negative thoughts about the future when I was long term unemployed.

You need to grab life by the scruff of the neck and go for it. Then you will find much better relief.

I let music pretty much dictate my mood if I can relax that is otherwise I have anger etc but music helps a lot. I read philosophy and poetry also to get more positive views of things it helps.

Classical music really helps and a trip outside even if it's just your garden. This will become routine and you may start being more positive!
