Previously, the largest part of the history of psychology's field did not concentrate on positives , but concentrated on what harm people which causes mental illness , emotional and intense breakdown , also concentrated on the means which permit to people to live and adapt to their great pains. This was my special valid concept about psychology and psychoanalytic which I always see it at a .negative frame and unreal
This trend has continued to 1980s until the concept of positive psychology started to emerge which deals with numerous positive topics as happiness, hope , optimism, will power, strengthen social relations, and other topics that aim to improve the quality of human life in addition to it is interested in negative sides , its importance and balance between both of them.
Martin seligman is regarded as Godfather for positive psychology and one of the most important scientists of contemporary psychology.
Term of positive psychology caught my eyes strongly to feel that I have found what I am looking for because it is completely contrary to my traditional belief about psychology. The idea of psychology and psychoanalytic for me was similar to the fisherman who throw the hook away and does not throw it near the shore thinking that with this way he will hunt a bigger fish ;
There are many people around us at simplest situations prefer the farthest psychological interpretation which they believe and you do not see it , removing any other direct obvious reasons thinking that they are understanding your inners more than you !!As olden days ; they said that who go to the psychologist with one disease, backs with unexpected disease groups !!
Along the same line , I remember after I have finished my reading for Ahmed Abdul_Majeed's novel , I read for him a post on Facebook that many of readers are sending him their interpretation of the novel's hidden meaning to make sure that it's valid , the writer's reply was : ( it's up to you) , it isn't necessary there is a certain deep meaning for the novel because everyone implementing what he read and understand it according to his character, Cultural background, and his environment which will certainly be different from one to another.
I admired that although he is the writer of the novel , he did not limit the intention of it's idea at a certain form to be shaped according to every reader's personal paste.
I always find the word of ( psychological) is over used by negative way and find some people has the enjoyment of negative analysis for others. When I hear it concerning others ; I feel as they are aggrieved by injustice. People violated their inners and judged it with absolute negative judgment .who violate other's mantals with negative way ; this is what inside him in the first place because each pot is exuding.
The writer Sherif Arafa says in his Book "To Be Yourself " : concentrate on the black point to convince himself that all the world is black.
