      I get it, what I have found that works for me is not trying to catch myself when I'm off but rather catch myself when I am calm, when I examine my thoughts about myself or my feelings and reactions at a time when my mind is calm, I find I tend to stay calmer and have less boughts with anger or frustration, meditation helps this, of course I tend to meditate more when I feel well than when I don't, I also like some kind of physical outlet, trail runing mostly or lifting weights wich can also be very meditative.  When you pissed off and your thoughts are racing 100miles an hour exercise might be better, better that soembody telling you to let go, or clear your mind when inside your head your thinking SHUT th F@#k up dude!
      Sometimes it's better to burn out a brush fire rather than try to smother it.  And in those clm moments when all is right with the world take notice of where you are be present in it, give your self over to it as though nothing else exists, it could be dinner with friends or swimming in a lake after a rain or hanging with your girl ect...

      I have been trying to break through this problem barrier for years now... But, I seem not to be able to catch myself in it so I can look into why I think and say these things, and then replace them... Any thoughts on how to do this? I really want to win this battle with myself... Thanks. I do know I am not alone in this... Peace, Greg.

      I have been reading your pages of your web site, and I have also been working on using positive affirmations, meditations, etc... before I knew about your site. I have leaned that I have one of the worst habits possible for a human being, that is giving myself negative thoughts, self-moha, all the time, a habit learned from an abusive childhood. I strongly believe in morality, justice and kindness - but, I do not give this to myself! This habit has been exceptionally hard to break and change into a positive inner dialog or even more appropriately and accepting dialog, as I am not able to recognize when I do it, as it is such a deeply ingrained habit for me to do to myself. I know all the techniques in cognitive retraining, but can not seem to get to correcting this negative inner dialog.  I thought "maybe there is a way meditation can help me change this debilitating habitual negative inner dialog".
      Do you have any thoughts, as I would be honored and glad to consider them.
      Thank you, Greg.
