Thoughts

« Accept the negative thoughts – the anxieties, fears, regrets – for what they are: thoughts. They’re not directives, and they’re not “us”. By acknowledging that they’re here to stay, we make peace with them, which creates a distance from them – a recognition that they don’t have to control our behaviour or our mood. They’re more like clouds passing by, or options presented by our “staff”. We’re the ones – the thinker rather than the thought – who get to choose the actions that will best serve the life we want to live and the things we truly value. »
