Cognitive Distortions

From the checklist of cognitive Distortions, "mental filter" and “Should statements” are what I use in my cognitive behavior. I use the mental filter when something upsets me that I cannot get over, and keeps bugging me which can turn into a bigger problem. Dwelling on the negatives in my life doesn’t help me recover and affects my life in a big way.

The mental filter use in my life affects my thinking and makes me feel stressed. My life would be a constant headache and I wouldn’t be able to think about the positives if I would have to continue using the mental filter. Having negative thoughts or feelings can lead me to more unfortunate problems. By letting go of the mental filter, I can succeed more in my life and think in a more positive way.

I use the “Should statements” more frequently in my life than the mental filter. I always have regrets about life, school, and relationships. This is a constant struggle I face every day. When I am upset about a situation, I criticize myself on how I should of, or would of, done differently and this makes matters worse. For instance, I get buyer’s remorse after a shopping trip and feel I ought to return everything rather than get angry at myself. I sometimes think it will be a never ending thing and won’t get better.

When I use the “Should statements” aloud in front of my family or friends it makes me feel embarrassed to know that it is unflattering to see, and my self-esteem goes down. If I approach a situation without using the “Should statements”, I can ultimately have a sense of control over my thoughts and feelings.

The checklist of Cognitive Distortions, has all the cognitive behaviors that many use in their lives and that have dramatic affects. People use the cognitive distortions to hold a grudge against themselves and this lowers their self-esteem by thinking in a more negative manor. In order for someone to get better with their cognitive behavior, they need to seek other positive cognitive behaviors. How we choose to think can affect our outcomes in life and the life we want to live.

If I think more positively, my life will be bright and fulfilling. Having therapy can help with the cognitive distortions and can help boost your mood over time.
