It’s not only the negative thought that seems to be the problem it’s the emotions that accompany the thought. It takes a ton of self awareness for me to catch myself before getting swept up in the emotional whirlwind that negative thinking engenders.
Yes, you are absolutely correct! Ariel and I have brought this, too, in our work. It requires a lot of insight and self-discipline to override these negative emotions and transform them. Most people just go with them and let them run their lives, without using any self-reflection because it takes a lot of bravery to confront one’s shadow side/dark side, although we all have it. But it seems like you’re working on this, and that is both awesome and brave!
Or another way is to transform negative into positive?
