Choosing thoughts


The Greatest weapon against stress is the ability to choose one thought over another.


William James
My two cents:

Where we place our attention is the greatest power we humans possess.



Letting go of negative thought and emotion alters perception and personality.

  1. This is true 🙂 I try to think ‘away’ from my present.

  2. Think away from present?

    Could you expand on that thought a little more

    Thoughts seemed so linked, so instrumental in ptsd, depression, anxiety and most emotions.

  3. To think away from the flashback or memory that’s causing me to shut down. I have one memory that is a constant reminder that I’m here and not there anymore. ‘Think away.’

  4. Thanks for the response. Ok I understand

    I kinda do the same thing, I was taught to to focus on my breath intently, then let the trigger fades away.

    My critical time is after a trigger. If I let it be, that is stay present and do not ruminate, the duration and intensity is contained.

    I can think which will lead to worry and worse.
