As a follow up from last week, when we discussed the anxiety cycle; today we will be discussing cognitive distortions. Cognitive distortions are negative ways of thinking about ourselves or situations that involve us. We all have a tendency to use negative logic but some of us are more likely to have them more frequently than others. Sometimes, these negative beliefs are so engrained that it’s hard for us to view it another way.
