How to use "Wishful" in context?

To most people, "wishful" is a positive word that represents hope and wishing for the best. To some, however, it is a word that feels negative and can result in stress and disappointment. When we make wishes without thinking about what could actually happen, we are more likely to experience negative emotions. This is because our brain is working as if we have already received what we wished for. Often, this ends up being a disappointment because what we wished for does not materialize. If we make our wishes based on what we truly want and need, we are less likely to experience stress and anxiety.
