That's right.Is it any wonder i'm anxious? And instantly trying to think positive doesn't fix that.
Advice from people telling you 'how to think' is well-intentioned, but it doesn't work.
Why? Because negative or positive thoughts are a very late consequence of subconscious processes (feelings and beliefs).
By the time you're aware of your negative thought, it is too late in a sense. Trying to replace it by something else doesn't work, because there is no root in your subconscious to support that foreign thought.
Think of your subconscious beliefs as the seeds, with roots buried deep, and the thoughts you're noticing as leafs above ground. Cutting them off and replacing them with the leafs of a more 'positive' plant won't work, will it
My recommendation is to do a process that helps to follow the 'negative' leafs all the way down to the seeds, and challenge those.
Still with me? I recommend you try a process that was described by Byron Katie, she calls it "The Work." She wrote a book about it too. But you can also just download her one-page worksheet, watch an instruction video, and spend some time with it every day.
