Getting rid of a thought

Wow, life throws lots at you. This should really say - Life is throwing lots at me.

I have problems with "false thought(s)" - to me they keep rearing their ugly heads.

Here is a great thought.

The process of weakening a false thought is a little like losing a baby tooth; at first, you may only feel a tiny bit of “give,” a slight wiggle away from rigid belief and constant
emotional pain. But as the mind turns its energy to dis-proving a painful thought, rather than proving it over and over again, the wiggling becomes more pronounced. You feel freer and freer, until one day you forget you ever believed something that is now obviously untrue.
