COULD IT BE THAT WHAT YOU ARE TELLING YOURSELF IS THE CAUSE OF YOUR DEPRESSION

There’s something in all of our lives we’d like to change. Nobody’s life circumstances are perfect. But, “What are you telling yourself about these circumstances?” Many time people bring on a depressed state by what they are actually uttering to “themselves” about themselves. You can actually brain wash yourself into thinking negatively about yourself and your life.

::::::Misbelief’s and the BLAME GAME::::::
Most people who are dealing with misbelief’s in their thinking, typically wants to put blame on something or someone. (Example)

“Why do I feel the way I do?” “Its my wife, she makes me feel this way.” or “It’s all my husband fault.” ” My job isn’t satisfying me.” “My friends are disappointing me.” or “My kids are a disappointment.”

 :::::Test Yourself::::::

Here’s a small test for you is to listen to the words you are telling yourself like “I Am All Alone.” “Nobody Loves Me or Cares About Me.” “Nobody Wants to Be With Me.” “I Am Rejected and Useless.” If these are the words/sentences you are using. You have “Misbelief’s in Your Patterns of Thinking, which can destroy your ability to have healthy thinking, and as a result causing depression.”
