When something bad happens to you, don't conclude that it'll happen to you over and over again.

Cognitive Distortions - Part 2⁠⁠When something bad happens to you, don't conclude that it'll happen to you over and over again. This is what mental health professionals call "overgeneralization."⁠ Stay positive!⁠For example, you break up with someone and you believe that no one will ever love you.

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. Your life means a lot to those who love you. With Warmest Aloha,Jon
