Hold the Tomatoes

I was talking with a friend about ways to deal with recurrent troubling thoughts. From years of experience with my own thoughts and many discussions with friends, it appears we all have thoughts that are unhelpful. If you are like me and have not found the off switch for the negative thought stream, here is an analogy that may be useful. Thoughts are like horsd’oeuvres. If you don’t like tomatoes, the bruschetta is not a problem if you don’t put it on your plate. The thoughts, like horsd’oeuvres being served at a party, will keep passing by but if they are not useful you can just leave them on the tray.
