You see it unpacking its belongings and scattering them untidily on your floor.
You harbor feelings of resentment toward the thought for now occupying even more of your personal space.
Yet you say nothing because you fear what the thought might think of you should you ask it to leave.
All the while the thought grows bigger and occupies more head space and tells other thoughts about you so they come crowding in, too, and before long what once was your clarity and peace of mind is now teeming with uncomfortable thoughts.
The good news is this situation is temporary. Your unwanted thoughts will only stay as long as you permit them. If you’re done cleaning up the messes those thoughts have created, your choice is simple:
Ask, invite, insist and demand. . . they all leave at once.
