Shit.

My therapist gave me these questions that I carry in my wallet everywhere I go whenever I am having an episode of constant anxious thoughts. Training yourself to recognize when your thoughts are unhealthy is really crucial when it comes to coping with anxiety.

The questions read:

  • Is this thought 100% true?
  • Is this thought helpful?
  • Is this what you would tell a friend/loved one?

It’s important to reflect on these every time your mind starts beating you up with your insecurities. Chances are that the thought is not 100% true (if it’s true at all), it’s not helpful in any way, and we most certainly wouldn’t tell others half of the things we tell ourselves. We need to treat ourselves better.

The last line there says consider the opposite - literally take your thought/s and flip its meaning. ‘I look awful today’ = ‘I look great today’. It takes practice, but giving a try could really help you.

Hope these tips help someone out.
