Isn't it frustrating...
- Driving or taking public transport
- Getting ready in the morning or preparing for bed
- Exercising or simply walking between locations
- Unconditional Acceptance: Especially if some of these thoughts have echoes of critical people in your past, treating them like a scared frighten little child that needs unconditional affirmation and acceptance could be the best way to make peace. Here's an example of how I used this strategy to "kiss on the nose" my struggle with being a human doing instead of a human being.
- Outright War: If you find these thoughts are coming out of nowhere and are just frustrating, ridiculous and something you want to pummel. That's OK too. BUT first, turn these thoughts into accusatory "You" statements (such as "You are incapable of doing anything right") BEFORE you start to beat them up. (You don't want to attack your "I" sense of self worth.) Here's a step-by-step plan of attack.
