Tapping on the truth of how you feel is what will get you results. You don’t need to dress up how you feel before you tap, just let rip on your honest feelings and watch how things shift. If you think you’re being negative, then tap on that first.

I hope the following phrases help you, remember to customise them to suit your feelings and situation.
Even though I think I’m being negative by telling the truth, I completely accept how I feel
Even though I don’t accept how I feel, I accept the truth of that
Even though I can’t be with this feeling, I accept how I feel
Even though I’m afraid that this will never end because no matter what I do it doesn’t go away, I accept how frustrated I feel
Even though I brace against these body sensations because they feel so awful, I can’t help myself, it’s a knee jerk reaction, maybe I can feel 10 seconds of them
Even though I’m just so exhausted fighting, struggling, trying to get better and it seems the harder I try, the worse I feel, I love and accept myself anyway
Even though I can’t find any compassion and kindness for these feelings and sensations right now, that’s ok
Even though I don’t see any way out of this … I choose to remain open, what have I got to lose?
Even though if I say it out loud or even admit to it silently, I feel it makes it more true, I accept how I feel
