Do you have negative auto thoughts?

Hello to everyone. I learned a lot in the book Feeling good with cognitive behavioral therapy. I think the most important of these was negative automatic thoughts. I also had a lot of negative automatic thoughts.

For example; I will not be able to do this job.
This girl doesn't seem to care about me.

After dealing with CBT, I destroyed most of these negative thoughts. But there is still a piece.

How are you doing?

Yes, not all the time but sometimes it can be overwhelming. My most common ones are:
"I wasn't good enough"
"I'm worthless"
"It'd be better if I wasn't here"
"I have no one"

I think I do a lot of personalization as well.

The worst part about my negative thoughts is that they are all true. Sad reality

I think a lot of people get these thoughts, but the best way to deal with them is to have a secure sense of who you are and your esteem etc. Easier said than done, but once you have a secure sense of yourself, then any comment (internal thought or someone else's view) doesn't have much effect x

Definitely used to have so many negative thoughts, and still do but after listening to author louise hay, that really changed the way I think about myself.
Louise says a thought is always in your mind and a thought can always be changed.
It's the practice of being introspective and conscious of your thoughts and beliefs about yourself.
A negative thought can be recognised and changed to a positive one.
She promotes self-love and acceptance of our very being.
It has helped me tremendously over the years
