    I have not read either of the stories mentioned.

    Depending on the thoughts, it is important to test reality by sharing your thoughts with others. The others can then give you feedback about your thinking, either positive or negative. Positive feedback supports your ideas and feelings (e.g, "I agree"). Constructive negative feedback makes you aware of other ways of viewing the topics or situations (e.g., "Couldn't you also think about it in this way?").

    Unfortunately, we often fail to share ideas because of the fear of destructive negative feedback (e.g, "That's stupid!" "You idiot!").

    For example, if someone fails to acknowledge your greeting, your first thought is likely to be "I'm being snubbed." However, the person's attention might be focused elsewhere (being in a hurry or some personal problem) making it less likely that your greeting was noticed. Especially among older people, hearing or visual difficulties might be another possible explanation.

    I hope this helps.
