Have you noticed how one often uses phrases like: “I have to”, “I must”, “I should” or “I don’t have time”. These phrases make you feel stressed just by themselves! Instead one should use positive phrases like “I would love to”, “I will find time”, “wouldn’t it be nice”…

Thanks for sharing; our thoughts and actions must be positive, i always see a half filled glass as half full, never as half empty, these two are opposite views for the same thing; be positive, be happy my friend

Interesting concept and choice of words. I think there are a lot of times in reality where you might be like I should find more time, or I don't have time to do it, and it can frustrate you. With everything we do in life, it revolves around us, and what type of outcome we will have, and will we be a better person because of it. It is truly a play on words that can often help us become the Best person we would Love to become as well.

I can relate to what you're saying. I guess you're not stressed-up by what they say but because of what they do about it after saying it. Having the "I should", "I must", etc. makes great expectation from the one who listens. And the impact is greater when you fail to do it compared to the impact when you just said "I would love to", etc.
