A couple of months ago, my father asked me to read one of the short stories on this blog called Ben’s Story. (http://wp.me/p2FEoB-XU) It caused me to start thinking about my own life.
In the story, Ben learned that he did not have to let painful thoughts control his life. This got me to thinking about my life.
Years ago, I did some things that really hurt someone and I have felt very guilty and ashamed about that ever since. Thinking about that consumed a lot more of my time over the years that I like to admit. I felt worthless because of what I had done and I thought about that very often every day of my life.
Ben told me that I didn’t have to dwell on those negative thoughts; that I could simply say, “I’m not going to think about that.” Without expecting much, that’s what I started doing. Whenever one of those negative thoughts popped into my mind, I say to myself, “I’m not going to think about that.”
Last night, standing on my back porch, watching the stars, I realized that not once during the entire day had a thought popped into my mind that I had to take control of. It was working!
I still have apologies to make and perhaps restitution; but I’m not held captive by the negative thinking anymore. I can get on with my life.
I’m going to apply this concept in some other areas of my life. I’ll let you know how that works. But I can say one thing for sure, this idea worked for me.

I love this. It is amazing how quickly you can retrain your thoughts. However, after many years of letting my thoughts run rampant, ruminating, analyzing them and trying to figure out why this and why that, I know it will take practice to dismiss negative thoughts. I’ve been doing this about 10 days and [I] took a little longer than suggested, but have just started lesson 4 and am dismissing distracting thoughts as well. My life is more peaceful (although I’m on vacation this week). But the difference started within a couple of days. Thank you so much for coming to my rescue.
I ordered your plan after a particularly stressful day at work during which my reaction to the stress was anger. I looked online to find a connection. Why was I angry? Was that normal? I found your program. Now I’m not angry. I don’t give the thought a chance to go anywhere.
I am actually having moments to sit and just feel contentment. Thank you.

I had been angry for many years when I learned that I can “take my thoughts into captivity.” When I started doing that on a consistent basis, I discovered that I’m not nearly as angry. I simply refuse to think about the negative thoughts that pop into my head long enough for them to turn into active anger.
This concept changed my life.

Throughout my childhood I was completely intimidated by other family members. They made me feel worthless. This carried over into my adult and married life. Every time I thought about what had happened year ago, I started feeling inferior and worthless again.
When I learned that I didn’t have to let those thoughts control me, it was like a breath of fresh air and soft gentle breeze in my life.
