changing channels

Hi, This is what we call in my line of work, "cognitive therapy" and it's good advice. When we alter our dark thoughts and look to the positive, which is turning towards the light, trying hard to see the glass as half full or overflowing, certainly our mood will change. It is a discipline. For some it does not come naturally but it does happen.

I see this as flipping the channel. I don't personally liek to have dark, uncomfortable thoughts about anyone or anything. So I work with these when they happen. Life does have this other side and we are confronting all kinds of pain, sorrow, uncomfortable and difficult feelings on this "journey". So if we can turn the volume down on the dark and up on the light, it is surely beneficial and we feel much much better. I have a good friend who suffered unremitting depression for years until he found the answer: cognitive therapy!
