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.
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
