by negatively thinking about your future, you are indeed sabotaging your future. thought has tremendous effect on reality.

whatever you put out you will receive. and thus bad things come to you because you are putting out that bad things will come to you.

Hmm.. I don't know you at all, but have you heard of something called a self-fulfilling prophecy? It's when you expect something to go badly, and so it does.. It sounds like you're kinda doing that.. As for not having positivity or guidance in your life, surely you have some friends? And I know this is cliche, but try not to worry about what others think of you.. The first and most important thing is that you're happy with yourself.

To quote Dr Seuss:
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

Hope this helped a little :)

since you mention decent guidance i am going to shamelessly quote dr phil here~ because i can honestly and without embarassment say until i watched his programmes several years ago and read his life strategies book about becoming your own life manager i did self sabotage, thought negatively about my life and had no hope, doing exactly what people predicted for me, blaming others for my own decisions and ending up with a rubbish life accordingly. i read the book, got with and stuck to the program, and changed my life incredibly, it wasnt easy but i am so glad i did it, i know 100% that had i not i would have killed myself by now or at the very least would be in exactly the same rubbish life situation i was in, just more depressed about it and even more unable to do anything about it by now. i wish i could write the whole book here but only you can take the decision that you want to change your life for the better. You have already made a fantastic start by acknowledging that you have been doing this so well done for that :cool: i started emboldening the real important bits, but i gave up cos they are all important!

I may not be suited to give an advice right now, considering that you partially explained why you're having thoughts of negativity (e.g. decent guidance).
However, this is what I can tell you: The mind is capable of harnessing powerful thoughts. Whatever is harnessed within, is shown through immediate output.

Pandora showed us hope. Use it wisely:proud:
