The struggle is real! I brought this up to my therapist a few weeks ago. She told me to try meditating ON something. So I’ve been choosing to visualize a desirable feeling, situation, behavior, goal I want to reach, etc. My mind stays with the “theme” I choose and I feel great afterward because I feel much more positive about myself. After doing this for awhile, I’m hoping I’ll get better and controlling my thoughts and be able to clear my mind through meditation sometimes. Find what works for you. Best wishes!
