Hello Ruslan, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Having negative thoughts is perfectly normal. The human brain has an extraordinary ability to think about the possibilities of a situation at hand. For example, when you are facing a school exam. In your mind you can think positive thoughts in the form of happy feelings that will arise when you graduate successfully, pride that you can see in your parents' eyes, pride in yourself if your grades are good, but negative thoughts can also arise in your mind like what if you didn't. pass, what if you get sick during the exam, what if the exam questions are very difficult, and so on. You can use these negative thoughts as a trigger to strive harder and try harder to achieve good results.
However, if negative thoughts persist in your mind, are more dominant than positive thoughts, and actually hinder you from doing good things, then this condition requires further attention. Sometimes negative thoughts can be triggered by stress, certain traumatic events (for example, you were cheated by your business partner or cheated on by your partner), and can be triggered (and trigger) depression and anxiety disorders.
