Don't have an all or nothing thinking. Stay positive!

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.

In a dispute, not everyone will believe the facts. Keep doing what you can, but don't let your stress destroy your health or suck the joy out of your life.

If you're facing a dispute or litigation, all you can do is present your side of what happened. After that, it's up to the trier of fact, whether it be a mediator, arbitrator, judge, or jury. If they side with you, great! However, if they don't, tell yourself that you did what you could. Continue to do what you can, but don't let your stress destroy your health or suck the joy out of your life. My friends, I know it's tough. The truth will always live in you.ย Your life means a lot to those who love you. With Warmest Aloha,Jon

To lower your stress, anxiety, depression, or anger, lessen your consumption of the news. ๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ“ฐ๐Ÿ“ป๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ฑ The news is filled with negative stories and gossip, stuff that will make you stressed, anxious, depressed, or angry.

I love this game! If you love what you do, it's fun, like a game. If you don't, it's life, the dreary tasks you do to get by. Finding your purpose that makes your heart sing is what you desire. It's what we all desire. If you have your purpose, awesome! Keep working on it! If you haven't found your purpose, I have a fun homework for you. Write down 10 things you enjoy doing. Then, write 10 ways you can provide value for others for each of the 10 things you enjoy doing. Next, pick your favorite value and find a company, non-profit organization, or government agency that provides that value and see if you can work for them....
