Is Being Grateful Over-Rated?


Writings of a Pagan Witch

I have been hearing this idea of being grateful for over 30 years. People an Anonymous programs are encourages to cultivate an “Attitude of Gratitude”. Reiki practitioners are told to “Be Grateful” each day. Most world religions in some way tell us to “Be Thankful” and “Give Thanks”. New Age promoters try to tell us that we should be grateful for the events in our lives because they bring lessons.

Really? What about those things that I’m not really grateful for?

Maybe, being grateful is over-rated.
