“If we know how we generate negative emotions through particular thoughts, especially irrational ones, we have the secret to never being desperately unhappy again” – Tom-Butler Bowdon, p. 74

Negative : “Put yourself down”, “worst case scenario”.

Thoughts: “The talking voice in your head” or “The Chatter Box” or much better as “The Critical Faculty”, based on previous experience.
