Tip stream

when i have those yucky thoughts come through my mind, you know the ones that make you think i am really messed up. I visulize a stream with green grass and a low part of the river with rocks i try to hear the flow of the water over the rocks. Then i imagine a piece of trash floating down the stream. I let the trash float past and out of my line of sight. I relate the trash to the weird or stressful thought and let it go. I was told in therapy that our minds bubble up all kinds of stuff but if we pick it up and hold on to the thought we can make ourselves worse. I am only human and i try not to define myself by my worst thoughts.
