People Always Say “Control Your Thoughts” But I Don’t Think It’s Possible

People always tell you to think positively and control your thoughts, and I’m starting to get concerned for those people. You can only control your thoughts so much, and it’s not that much.

No one wants to be negative, but sometimes you can’t help it. No matter how I look at some situations, they don’t look good, because they aren’t good, and no amount of twisting things in my head will change that.
