I realise the courage and self honesty it takes to acknowledge and deal with one’s own cognitively distorted thinking, is not common. Which is sad, because cognitive distortions, are very common.
Most people, I realise, will not be receptive to this info. But, for the those it will be embraced by, I am thankful if it helps.
If people are unwilling to embrace learning about cognitive distortions, I accept that and realise you can only help those willing to help themselves.
It is interesting how I pick up on highly experienced mental health professionals and clinicians, having distorted thinking, and can help them with that. My understanding of this area of human thinking and behaviour, is pretty deep.
