Unclench your mind. Just for a moment! Just one moment and then you can go back to punching thoughts. You're very good at it by the way. I've never met a better thought puncher! But let's just try. Okay?
Now... doesn't that feel a little better? What were you so worried about? I know, there are some very aggressive ideas out there. It's good that you can defend yourself but sometimes it's important to be vulnerable.
They'll think I'm stupid! They'll think I'm gullible! Yeah... and... so... what? That's just how they defend themselves and that's okay, but you were meant for better things, otherwise you would not be here. Got it? Or are you gonna punch me too?
