How to be optimistic, but not annoying

How to be optimistic, but not annoying | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

Here is my secret to optimism: I operate under the assumption that no matter what oppresses people, they enact some resistance somewhere, even if it is in their mind. We hear a story the way we experience the world. I hear the resistance, the skills, and the hope. And then I hold up a mirror for my clients to see it, too. This instigates an immediate change in their perceptions and feelings. And it is not annoying. (Maybe they are just being polite.)
