Cognitive Distortions - Part 1
Don't have an all or nothing thinking. Stay positive!
The following are a couple of examples of an all or nothing mindset: "I didn't get accepted into the university that I wanted so I'm a failure" or "I lost my election because people don't like me."
All or nothing is the basis for perfectionism. Such thinking makes you feel worthless because of a failure or imperfection. Absolutes don't exist. If you force your experiences into absolute categories, you'll always be depressed because whatever you do will never measure up to your exaggerated expectations.
