Charles Popplestown said, “You cannot always control your circumstances, but you can control your own thoughts.”thoughts

In PTSD it can often feel as if your thoughts control you. The good news is: you can shift the balance of power!

Begin controlling your thoughts today. When a negative, fearful, anxious thought comes in:

1. imagine you can open a door in your mind

2. shove the thought out

3. slam the door

4. bolt the door

5. make a picture in your mind of something that makes you feel happiness, joy, love, or excitement.

 It is possible to conquer the past and create the future — the first step is choosing to take the journey.
