"Feelings are not facts"

I’ve done something wrong. He doesn’t want to be bothered with me. I’m so stupid. Why do I even bother? It’s always the same. I will never be understood or appreciated. Everyone always shuts me out. Every door slammed in my face. Every good emotion trampled upon, spat on. I’m wasting my time. I’ve made a mistake. I never do anything right.

Automatic thoughts are the great enemy of those who suffer from depression. They permeate our minds, affect our moods and behaviors. They are “very convincing.” But they are not invincible.

No. Alternate thoughts open up possibilities and opportunities.
He has a lot on his plate. He has a goal to attain. He wouldn’t hurt you. He is worthy of your trust.

I owe it to myself to be kind, loving, and supportive of me. Too many decades have passed when I haven’t been.

I am strong.
