Beware the Cognitive Distortions - David D. Burns

Jumping to Conclusions - You make negative interpretations even though there are no definite facts to support your conclusion.

  1. Mind-reading - You think you know what other people think about you or will think about you

  2. Fortune Teller (predicting the future) - You anticipate things to be negative before they happen, you think your predictions are always right.

Author Quote - Esther Perel

Self-esteem is being able to see yourself as a flawed person and still hold yourself in high regard.

Beware the Cognitive Distortions - David D. Burns

Personalization - You see yourself as the cause of some negative external event which in fact you were not primarily responsible for. “I was there. I should have done something. It is my fault.”
