What thinking errors am I making? Am I asking questions that dont have answers? Am I thinking all or nothing thoughts? Am I always exaggerating everything? Am I questioning my worth as a person because of one thing that has happened? Am I focussing on my weaknesses and forgetting my strengths Am I blaming myself for things that arent really my fault? Am I taking things personally? Am I expecting more of myself than I would of others? Am I only noticing the negative side of things? Am I making a mountain out of a molehill? Am I expecting a catastrophe? Am I worrying about things that I can do something about? Am I assuming that things cant change? Am I trying to predict the future?
