Do you Unfriend Yourself?
I've hovered my finger over the "unfriend" button on social media before.
My "friend" hadn't been holding up their end of the social agreement. They weren't posting things that I liked. (How dare they have their own opinions!)
Sometimes we don't like my friends. I want their posts to be hidden from view because I'm not managing MY thoughts about THEIR posts.
So rather than trying to understand why something is bothering me, it is far easier to unfriend them (or hide their comments.)
Either way, I don't have to see it.
I don't have to deal with it.
Sadly, there isn't an "unfriend" button for my thoughts.
I have to deal with my thoughts every minute of every day.
It would be so much easier if there were a button!
Since I can't hide from my thoughts, I should try to understand them even when I don't like them, even when they have a lot of ugly. Understanding why I'm thinking something from a place of compassion and kindness always helps.
Sometimes I think things I wish I didn't. I'm not going to beat myself up about that. But I will take the time to understand why. And from there, I can grow.
If you need help understanding why you think what you think, I'd be happy to help you sort it out. You can book a free session by clicking here.
Until then, be kind to yourself,
