Working on a dangerous-feeling thought

Hi coaches, today I had a thought about my mom: “She’s trying to make me look stupid.”

At first, I was like “Whoah, don’t think that, push it away.” I’ve never thought this before. It feels dangerous to look too closely at this T, like I might find something that I really don’t like about me or about her.

However, I do want to do the work.

Is the next step to model my above T and F and work on how I’m thinking about the thought, rather than working on the thought itself?
