STOP ourselves


This short article titled 12 Lies We Tell Ourselves by A. Ellis is totally worth to be read. Take your time to read and really ponder about it. 

1. I must have the love and approval of others. I must avoid disapproval of all costs.

2. I must be perfect, a success in all that I do. I must not make any mistakes.

3. People must always do the right thing. When they do not, they must be punished.

4. Things must be the way that I want them to be - otherwise life will be intolerable.

5. My happiness / (unhappiness) is a caused by external events. I have no control over my happiness / (unhappiness)

6. I must worry about things that might be dangerous, unpleasant or frightening otherwise they might happen.

7. I will be happier if I can avoid life's difficulties, unpleasantness or responsibilities.

8. I am weak and need to depend on those who are stronger than I am.

9. Events in the past have strongly influenced me - and they must continue to do so.

10. I must be upset when others have problems. I must become sad when others are unhappy.

11. I should not have to feel discomfort or pain. I must avoid then at all costs.

12. There is one right and perfect solution to any problem (usually mine). It is a tragedy when it is not found.

Oh and here's the bonus from me:
