I Might Leave Some of My More Negative Groups On Here

The reason for that, I want to think about and put energy into what I want rather than what I don't want and I can probably write about the same things and find the same like minded people in positive versions of the group.  For example, a group called 'I want to be accepted as I am' would be more constructive than a group called 'I'm sick of getting rejected'. I think there is a subtle but important difference between the two groups.

I've been thinking of what focusing on what you don't want means to  and if i'm giving too much focus to what i don't want and not enough to what I do want. .

Just a thought I'm entertaining...

Same with me. I'm keeping the negative experiences of the past that have shaped me in the past and are still worded in the past, but I think ones that define me as something negative or are negative looking towards the future are ones I'm going to try to stop identifying with. I have a very sensitive mind too, and I'm finally realizing all these negative identities I've held on to and how they could affect me. Never gave it much thought before

I've been thinking of doing that too. At first, I didn't add groups of negativity, but then I went through a negative time in my life and became a bit negative myself, more so than I was when I first started here.<br />

I know that my negative experiences have affected me, and that I can relate to a lot of people through them; but if I ever want to get past the effects of those experiences I have to stop identifying with them so much. My mind is very sensitive, so I can see how even adding it as a group could shift my thought processes in a way that could attract what I don't want.
