In the first statement in each of the above themes, you stepped back a bit from the thought by saying "I am kind of wishing..." and "I feel like..." I think that's a healthy way of thinking about it.

You're having these thoughts, but just recently you were having other thoughts. The thoughts aren't who you are. They're thoughts you're having. And feelings you're feeling. It's ok to have thoughts and feelings, no matter how sad they are. Your thoughts and feelings don't need to be reasonable or moderate. You just need to recognize them as thoughts and feelings that you're having now, but that you won't have forever.

Is the class you're taking over? When is the next one?
