An Exercise for Transforming Negative Thoughts into Empowering Ones

I can’t do anything right. In fact, I can’t do anything. No one will ever love this faulty, flawed body. I am always such a mess. This situation will never get better.

When we think these kinds of thoughts, we assume we’re being objective and unbiased. We assume they’re truths. But we’re not, and they’re not. Rather, these thoughts are simply a different interpretation. A negative perspective that only sinks our mood and makes us feel powerless and paralyzed.

    When I feel negative vibes from myself and others, I remind myself that I am a survivor, and not a victim. I remind myself how proud I am of my daughter, who was born 12 weeks early, and is now a doctor. I also remind myself how I fought to get her hearing re-tested when she was 10. And I also remind myself how I supported my son to do his scholarship application for The OgdenTrust, which inspired him to take and complete his PhD in Physics. And how I dealt with losing my brother to cancer in childhood by volunteering with Anthony Nolan. And I remind myself that Ive been through a lot in my life.
