The thoughts are not ‘who you are’
The thoughts are not ‘who you are’ – you actually have a problem getting the thoughts OUT of your head.
This is PROOF that the thoughts are not ‘who you are’.
‘Tired thoughts in a tired mind’
Your thoughts get exaggerated BECAUSE you are feeling anxious.
Claire Weekes in her book “Self Help For Your Nerves” describes these thoughts as “Tired thoughts in a tired mind” – this is a wonderfully simple description
EVERYONE who is in a state of anxiety encounters this problem to some degree.
