Learned Optimism – repost


This is a great post which I hope you enjoy: Getting out of depression (learned helplessness) by learning to be optimistic.

This is how Wikipedia describes learned optimism:

Learned optimism is the idea in positive psychology that a talent for joy, like any other, can be cultivated. It is contrasted with learned helplessness. Learning optimism is done by consciously challenging any negative self talk.
