Negative Thinking

Are you unsure whether your self-talk is positive or negative? Some common forms of negative self -talk include:

-  Purification. Exaggerating the negative aspects of a situation and ignoring all the positive aspects. For example, you had a great day at work. You completed all your tasks ahead of time and were complimented for finishing the task quickly and accurately. But in the evening you just focus on your plan to get more done and forget about the compliments you received.

- Personalizing things. When something bad happens, you automatically blame yourself. For example, you hear that your night out with friends is canceled and you assume that plans have changed because no one wants you around.

- fabricating disasters. You automatically expect the worst without having the facts that the worst will happen. The cafe takes your order while you're in your car, you get an order other than what you want, and then you think the rest of your day is going to be a disaster.

- Blame. You try to say that someone else is responsible for what happened to you instead of you. This way you avoid taking responsibility for your thoughts and feelings.

- Saying “you should have” done something. You think about all the things you think you should have done and blame yourself for not doing them.

- exaggeration. Creates a lot of minor problems.

- Search for perfection. Maintaining impossible standards and trying to be more perfect risks failure.

- polarity. You see things as either good or bad. There are no middle grounds.

Where do negative thoughts come from

The reason behind negative thoughts is that you keep thinking about something but you don't take any action to carry it out because these negative thoughts never allow you to. Never be afraid to try because when you start something, you don't expect to achieve it and you have nothing to lose. So, trying should be your only option.

How do I know if my thinking is correct

Right thinking means looking at the whole situationthe positive, the negative, and the neutral parts and then coming to a conclusion. In other words, healthy thinking means looking at life and the world in a balanced way, not through rose-glasses.
