The Law of Attraction teaches us that our reality is what we make it; therefore, we have the choice to choose exactly how we interpret and react to every single hand that life deals us. If you choose to dwell on the negatives and look for the worst possible factors in a situation, then you are going to feel terrible. However, choose to look beyond the negatives for a silver lining and all the positivity that can be found in your life. Your outlook and your life, in general, will begin to look a lot rosier.
Obviously, this is much easier said than done. After all, we have probably all encountered problems that at the time had seemed inescapable, desperate even.

Have you ever been to see a movie or gone out with a friend, and become completely lost in all of the fun that you are having? Fun distractions such as these can prove an ideal way of taking your mind off of things, if only for a short time and can help you to feel better and put some distance between you and your problem. This Distance may help to give you the perspective that you need, to take that initial sting out of your worries and even begin looking at your problem in a more positive light.
Sometimes we can become so consumed and caught up in our worries, that it becomes impossible to view things with a clear and level head. This is where your friends and loved ones can help. Share your problem, let an outsider look at the situation and give their perspective on things.
Unless you are critically ill or somebody close to you is suffering from ill health, then your problem is probably not as big as you think.

When your worries are driving you crazy, sometimes, keeping the worst possible outcome in mind can be a true sanity saver.
