When I was going through rehab, I was given a tool to use for self-awareness. What I'd do is when a negative thought would enter my mind, I'd stop and debate it. When I'd feel sad or angry, I'd stop and talk to myself about it. "Is it that bad?" or "What else could I say or do?". I came to realise a lot of my thoughts and perceptions were over the top, depressive and some downright wrong. I'd then find alternative ways to deal with situations. It didn't come easy at first, but with practice, I started to allow positive thoughts to enter my mind. It was a part of our cognitive thinking sessions. There was more to it, but this was a small tidbit. Oh, and I still talk to myself.
