Feelings are caused by thoughts. You can access these thoughts by asking “Why? I feel this way?”
The thoughts behind the emotion can show you your mind’s misunderstandings, because any thought that causes an unpleasant emotion is likely caused by an assumption. And assumptions can be redefined.
... and find evidence for at least one of them. Your mind is subconsciously finding evidence for its assumptions, and now you are going to fight fire with fire.
Repetition is how the mind learns. Eventually, your subconscious mind will accept your redefinitions, and you will see a natural end to your negative thoughts.
