Work Toward Having A Positive Attitude

Next » « Previous


A positive attitude can help you feel better about life now. Sometimes this means looking for what is good even in a bad time or trying to be hopeful instead of thinking the worst.  

To learn how to work toward a positive attitude, click here.  

Please keep in mind that even the most optimistic person is not likely to be able to keep a positive attitude all the time.

Also, do not buy into what Jimmy Holland calls the "tyranny of a positive attitude." An emphasis on keeping a positive attitude can lead people to blame themselves for their illness, or for not getting better. Cancer and its course have other causes.

Don't blame yourself for your cancer. Cancer can happen to anyone.
