By allowing yourselves the luxury of a negative thought, you are giving yourselves permission to be precisely where you are. The sooner you seek to repair, replace, or cover up that negative thought with something else, the less you value yourselves in that moment.
Be willing to accept the negative thought, and be willing to accept yourselves as the one who is having the negative thought. Be willing to accept the negative thought as valid and as a necessary component of your reality.
When you say something or think something that could be deemed negative by you or by someone else, you are not saying that you want to hold that perspective forevermore. You are simply being with the thought long enough to give it its day in the sun. And what is wrong with that?
The only thing that you have to be vigilant about is your awareness. And if you are aware of the thought that you are thinking, then that is enough.
You are each being presented with a variety of perspectives in every day. None of those perspectives is wrong. All of them are valid, and only when you allow yourselves to experience the perspective are you able to choose then which one you want to hold.
But it is never necessary for you to judge any of them as wrong or inappropriate. And when you allow yourselves to have a negative thought every once in a while, you actually feel more liberated, freer to choose.
The need to be perfect and always positive is one that you adopt when you are in denial of something, and that can be a very restrictive way of living your lives. We wish for you to experience the freedom that comes from allowing yourselves to be where you are and to think what you think.
