What's stopping you from asking questions now?
What's so bad about negative thoughts? What's so positive about someone else telling you how to think and feel? And above all: how can we ever make a motion for positive action if no one is willing to point out negative and then correct it?
Consider this: without negative, positive would not BE.
Without dark, there would be no light. Without cold, there would be no warm. Without yin, there would be no yang. And some of us can only feel complete after we've engaged a full cycle of negative thoughts so that we may rise to a higher, more positive place.
So to anyone trying to hard-sell you idea that you should curb your 'negativity' and replace it with that which is brighter, cheerier, more bouyant, more accepting, more agreeable, and above and beyond all else, MORE POSITIVE...
Tell them thanks for nice ideas... but you'd rather be yourself, with your own opinions and your own unique ability to reason. If it's your wish to explore your negative side with intent to purify your own soul, you are surely allowed to do that.
Having occasional negative thoughts doesn't make you a bad person. It makes you REAL and WHOLE.
In matters of spirituality, remember this: No one shall dictate to you how to act, speak and above all think. And that's one thing about which I'm absolutely positive.
