What are your thoughts trying to tell you?

In meditation we're taught many times that our thoughts are not good. They should be stopped, gotten rid of and we should find our way to a state with no thoughts. Unfortunately this teaching can be very misleading.

My understanding is that our thoughts are not our enemy in any way. They might be disturbing and very uncomfortable at times but if we try to fight them and get rid of them it seems that they will always win.

So what would happen if we would start to listen to them? The thought that says "I'M NOT GOOD ENOUGH" might have a deeper message to me. It might be saying "I can be a better version of myself." The thought "I CAN'T DO IT" might be asking "Is there another way?" The thought "ITS NOT RIGHT" might be asking "what is the truth?" What are your thoughts trying to tell you?
