15 Common Cognitive Distortions
hope7951 posted:
Cognitive distortions are simply ways that our mind convinces us of something that isn?t really true. These inaccurate thoughts are usually used to reinforce negative thinking or emotions ? telling ourselves things that sound rational and accurate, but really only serve to keep us feeling bad about ourselves. Cognitive distortions are at the core of what many cognitive-behavioral and other kinds of therapists try and help a person learn to change in psychotherapy . By learning to correctly identify this kind of thinking a person can then answer the negative thinking back, and refute it. By refuting the negative thinking over and over again, it will slowly diminish overtime and be automatically replaced by more rational, balanced thinking. For a complete list of the 15 common cognitive distortions orginally identified by Aaron Beck see link.

No one has all these thing at one time and no one doesn't have at least one of these at some time. This isn't about being right, it is a guide to things that may feel different then they are. Your feelings are real,but feelings are not good thing to act on. Thoughts and feelings are different. we all have both all the time. It is not good or bad. No one is good or bad. We are all both at the same time and that's okay because that is what is real. Joye
