Yea I agree, which is why we gotta spend a lot of time reframing beliefs. Go into the mind "Is this absolutely true?" "do I want to relive this?" "Is this belief benefiting me or hurting me?" "is this belief true for everyone, and if not, what can I change it to to benefit me more?"
I'm not saying you necessarily have to go in there and dig up all sorts of old ****, but when something comes up during the day analyze it and most of the time we can find a better viewpoint.
Either way, if you spent like a week focusing on the positive aspects of life and focusing on what you want to happen it will become a habit. For example if you're driving and the negative memory of a car accident comes up immediately shift your focus on what you want to happen (a safe trip.) appreciate the fact that the car companies installed so many safety features such as seatbelts and airbags and that the chances of something serious happening are slim-to-none.
"I've been in a car thousands upon thousands of times, and only once did I have an accident. Why am I choosing to focus on the one time that there was an accident? Millions upon millions of people drive daily and there are very few accidents. And most of the accidents that happen are only small fender benders. I know that even the people in those fenderbenders create their own reality and the only way that they can get into situations like that is by focusing on not-wanted things, so why I would choose to focus on a not-wanted thing is beyond me, so i choose to focus on the billions upon billions of safe trips that happen weekly"
Boom. Done. Next belief? Yanno.
