Some of us are more prone to negative thoughts than others are and that is just how our brains are wired. We tend to think negatively of ourselves, which leads to more negative thoughts about the other negative ones. It dawned on me when I went for a walk the other night, trying to get rid of my negative thoughts and beating myself up over them. Then I thought, I don’t need to allow these thoughts to have this much control over me.
- Some of us are more prone to negative thoughts, and they can often be distressing.
- Instead of allowing myself to wallow in these thoughts, I thought about what I might say to someone else who was having them.
- You can’t stop the negative thoughts, you let them come in and just try to breathe out the negative energy.
