Indulgent emotions

Hi Brooke!
Today I’ve been thinking a lot about how most of my day feels like indulgent emotions that just aren’t serving me (worry, irritated, judging, comparing, scared of the world, beating self up). So what I’m starting to do is jot down what I eventually want to replace in the same situations. So toddler having a meltdown at costco today felt suuuuper irritating but I also could have felt empathy (she wanted to feel independent and walk), resourceful, humor, etc. I’m becoming more aware of emotions that feel like they serve no purpose or are detrimental…so I’m wondering is the next step just doing model after model until my brain is on board with the new thought/emotion?
