Staying positive and keeping a positive perspective through difficult times can be an important practice to keep us from getting too disconnected and out of flow with the Universe. Negative feelings can overwhelm us or bring us down in a way that takes us out of alignment. Pretending that everything is ok when it's not and attempting to push through it without reflecting on the negative feelings that are coming up can also take us out of alignment. Even our positive feelings sometimes need reflection if they pull us away from our own sense of ourselves, or if we rely too heavily on how someone else makes us feel in order to stay positive. It's not that it's "bad", and sometimes kind, reassuring words about who we are can be much needed reminders when we're heading down a rabbit hole of negativity. Ultimately, we want to know and feel secure in our own self worth, self power, and self love.
