The upsetting situation

Stop: My discouraging thought

Ask: Is that a helpful thought?

Choose: My new, encouraging thought

Example I couldn't go to my child's game yesterday because I had to work. I've got my priorities wrong - I'm being a bad parent. No! I go to as many games as I can, and my job helps me save for my child's education. I'm the best parent I can be … and I'm putting aside money for my child's future. My priorities are OK.
