We are evolutionarily hardwired to focus on the negative. But that doesn’t serve us well in today’s society. We no longer need these sensitive receptors to stress or violence because our world has removed lions and tigers from our lives. However, we can’t remove the hardwiring, so we displace it onto things that don’t deserve it (i.e., work, relationships, etc.) The antidote to this is learning how to focus in a way that allows you to be present with what really matters.
