Positive Thinking is a Waste of Time

January 3, 2019

Why the law of attraction doesn’t work and is a waste of time. Why pathological positive thinking will just make things worse. And how to deal with negativity.

In this episode of The Rational Ape, I want to talk about positive thinking and why pathologically thinking positively about anything and everything is a waste of time. This method of going about the world doesn’t help you deal with the actual problem and suffering that comes with existence. No amount of positive thinking could change that.
