“Worry is a down-payment on a problem you may never have.”
I found this article I’d like to share particularly helpful!
“A stands for: Activating Event
B stands for: Belief
C stands for: Consequent Emotion”
… what do you believe about an actual situation that came to pass? If you’re like me… you belive it’s all your fault and that everyone hates you because of it. Everyone thinks, “She’s such a failure.” That’s what these voices say! I want them to stop.
The article goes on to say that labeling irrational thoughts is one of the many steps to recovery from anxiety taking over your life. Call a spade a spade. “This is an anxiety attack.” or, “That thought is irrational. Lord, who do You see me as?”
I hope this is as helpful for you as it was for me.
