Changing Negative Thought To Positive Thought
If you are trying to let go of a person, how do you act when you see them and how do you stop yourself from feeling negative emotions towards not having that person now?
Or waking up in the morning and feeling really empty because you know that person doesn't care about you.
Sometimes I think, and I don't know why, but I’m sure that that person does have feelings for me, and it makes me feel better, is that a bad thing?
Also if cant stop thinking about that person, even though the thoughts are positive, you remember the amazing times you used to have with them, is that wrong?

There are basically two types of thought, positive thought and negative thought.
Positive thought tends to make you feel good, and negative thought tends to make you feel bad.
Positive thoughts are thoughts like excitement, eagerness, hopefulness and happiness. And negative thoughts, are thoughts like powerlessness, anger, frustration and sadness. But of course you can add any extreme to this list.
The thing about thought is that in the moment, you can only carry one state of thought. That is, you cannot feel excited and powerless at the same time. Nor can you at any given moment feel eager and angry, hopeful and frustrated, nor happy and sad.
Basically, positive and negative thought cannot exist at the same time.
This is why when you are feeling the negative feelings of the lack of this person, a thought of hope about this person caring for you, or the happiness of a memory with this person, makes you feel better.
The problem is that these positive thoughts are quite short lived, as the hope turns easily into disappointment, and the memories underline the lack of things you experience together
So how do you turn your negative thoughts into positive ones?
Well you can’t really change a negative thought, but you can forget it.
When I say forget it, I mean get something for it. We have seen that a negative thought cannot exist in the presence of a positive thought, so the only way you can stop a negative thought, is to replace it with a positive one.
So what do you have in your experience right now that makes you think and feel positive?
Is it family, work, career, health, wealth, friends or interests?
Write out a list of all the good stuff in your life now, and go through your list every morning and every evening, to remind yourself of what’s good in your life now.
Every time you have a thought of sadness or missing this person, remind yourself of all the good stuff you have in your life right now.
Replace your negative thoughts with thoughts of gratitude for what you have now. And in time, and with practise, you shall change your state of mind from predominately negative, to predominantly positive, and as you do, you shall feel the change in your emotions.
I would also suggest that you start to meditate.
I have practised Vipassana Meditation for some time now and I am sure it will help you, take a look at the UrbanDharma.org Website
for some great information, you can also download an eBook on Vipassana called Mindfulness in Plain English
