It’s a square kind of deal with pros and cons. It may seem really simple, but it does actually help me process when I have thoughts that I know are irrational. Occasionally I have a difficult time pinpointing the irrational thought, but usually I can find it, so this excercise is useful.
If I don’t believe the new thought on the bottom, I have to start over with that one (or identify the irrational thought it is based on and start over with it).
It’s helpful in any case. I have more that I’ve done, but this one was the most legible.
My goal with this blog has always been to be as honest about my experience as I can be. It helps me and I vainly hope it might help someone else.
