To help you to learn the connection between thought and emotion, you may want to try this. When ever you feel negative emotion, ask yourself what you were thinking about, and where the thought train started and also where it is heading. Usually when you don’t feel good about the thought it’s because of what it means to you. When you have identified the offending thought briefly, try to find a better feeling thought. Even if the thought is on another subject, from the past or imagined for the future if it feels better go there. In fact why stop there see if you can find a better feeling thought than that, and then another one. Make a game of it and see how many better feeling thoughts you will find. The key to this process is to not try to make yourself feel better but to record how each thought actually makes you feel.
