Postive what-if thoughts lead to joyful possibilities

The Positive What-if Thought

/
Positive what-if thoughts are the very opposite of catastrophic thoughts. What if people find something positive in me that they both like and respect? What if my boss sees my progress, my dedication, and loves my work? What if I grew as a person, not in spite of setbacks, but because of them? What if I decide to set aside my insecurities, so that they no longer limit me?

Anxiety Symptoms as a Parasite

Every living thing wants to survive and reproduce. So does anxiety. Anxiety can be thought of as a parasite that finds an area of vulnerability and burrows in. Like every parasite, anxiety’s survival comes at the expense of the host. Typically, you'll notice anxiety symptoms in connection with some area of insecurity, perhaps your health, your relationships, your finances, or your work.

Cognitive Distortions

Thoughts and feelings are closely linked. Cognitive distortions amplify anxiety because intense feelings follow intense judgments. When your judgments are distorted, so are your feelings. When distorted judgments represent a chronic pattern of thinking, the result is a chronic predisposition to intense feelings, including anxiety.
