NO: I wasn't worthy of his love
YES: He wasn't worthy of MY love
NO: He chose her over me
YES: He chose himself, and if she wants a man like that she's welcome to him!

That's it so far. Do you guys have any to add to this list? What is your worst self-talk and how do you spin it? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Right now is harder than it looks. ~ Van Halen
I don't have one to contribute, because right now my thought process is more like, "she sucks!"
I guess the one I have used when my anxiety ramps up is one that my sister told me, which is, " that feeling is just adrenaline in the body. It will pass."
The only think I can think to contribute is:
NO: Our dreams are dead.
YES: This is my chance to dream big!
Patience, patience, patience.
I am learning to rely on myself.
I have my health.
My kids are awesome
Onward and upward
except in my case it was:
NO:He chose her over me
YES:I abandoned ship after realizing I was on a share d*ck program and she was the only one who was willing to put up with him. She can keep that mess! I deserve better!
Recently, I heard a song that includes a line "like a bird I sing cause you have given me the most beautiful set of wings".
It was a breakthrough moment for me because I really realized that it's true! I can do anything and go anywhere, It's all up to me- it is the most exquisite feeling! Makes my soul sing when I repeat it to myself
One, two, three like a bird I sing because you have given me the most beautiful set of wings----Tim McGraw
