Innate resource / positive virtue
Altruism / Optimism
"The world is how I see it, because I love my beloved ones, I see only love and beauty!"
Red Chestnut is the Bach Flower for those who often feel anxiety and concern for their loved ones. The Red Chestnut type is naturally inclined to take an interest in the health of others and of people they care about in particular. We can say that Altruism is their innate resource. However, this attitude originates from the fear that some misfortune might happen to them. This can lead the Red Chestnut type to feel anxious and to worry excessively and often unjustifiably, not so much for themselves as for those they love.
Red Chestnut therefore invites us to develop the virtue of Optimism, which is the ability to develop an attitude aimed at taking the most favourable and pleasant side of situations involving others, without giving unnecessary importance to possible, but improbable, negative events. In fact, what makes Red Chestnut truly functional is not the display of altruism, but the ability to show optimism and to spot in every situation pleasant outcomes for the loved ones.
