benefit finding


Benefit finding is a true art of living and not to be muddled up with glossing over a situation. It describes the gift of recognizing and using the hidden advantages in unpleasant things. Basically, it is a stress management strategy, a cognitive restructuring of meanings. It is not a trivialization of negative circumstances but a conscious reassessment of a stressful situation. Viewed from a different perspective, negative conditions initially turn out to be not that bad, as your eyes are opened to be able to see something good in the bad. It's not about denying the bad, it's about being able to recognize the positive aspects.
