One of the ways I catch myself is to ask some of the following questions:

Is there evidence to prove or disprove this belief I'm holding about myself?

Is it current or old?

Is it an excuse or a plea for someone to disagree? (This is super hard to be honest about!)

Am I secretly proud of this flaw? (another thing that is hard to admit)

And then I try to see myself the way others might - with more kindness and a less intense focus. So even if the negative thoughts are true, they probably aren't all true or as harshly true.

Just a few thoughts I had.
