How do you try and fight back negativity ?
I was just thinking to myself, why am I consumed by negative thoughts, when actually there are some pretty good things going on right now…
It’s like I am stuck in a mode that will never let me be happy, let alone appreciate the good things
Try to avoid stuff you see as negative.
All I seem to do is continuously punish myself, and I don’t think it’s healthy, at all
I have only read a small portion of my CBT books but I would think something like this might be helpful to you. Writing down the techniques involved would make for too lengthy of a post for here.
They do deal with negative thoughts in CBT though. If you can’t get a therapist to help you through them, maybe you can teach yourself to work through them. Just a suggestion that you might try.
Tonight, do something relaxing and try to enjoy your evening.
Write down ten things you’re grateful for.
I did 24 sessions of therapy and it didn’t even scratch the surface.
To be honest I think the therapist was rubbish
Might have to try and do this when I can find the motivation…
I just had a thought that I might make my desktop wall paper on my computer a collage of good photos of good things, and try to see them each day when I wake up and turn on my PC?
Sounds like a good place to start.
Yeah, I am having the same problem. I can’t seem to stay motivated to read my CBT books.
@velociraptor suggested a book called don’t sweat the small stuff.
Might try and read it again
It’s good because the advice is so short
I got an Autism book that the diagnosing physician told me to get and it was the shittest book ever
There must be a happy medium somewhere…
Yea. I keep thinking to myself, well I haven’t relapsed yet. I am always attentive to momments when I think I am hallucinating. It’s like I can’t just let go fully. It’s always there with me
i am also quite negative i am trying to train myself to focus on other things than those that drag me down. the mental energy i spend on my negative thoughts is astronomical i am exhausted from them. enough. gotta let it go.’
Get into the Christmas spirit. Watch “A Christmas Carol” on dvd. I like the George C. Scott version best.
