Negative automatic thoughts (NATs)
￼￼Listening to this session really made me start to think about the negative automatic thoughts that surface in the day-to-day. For instance, I don’t like talking about myself, so when I have an opportunity to speak about myself, it’s often met with some kind of emotion. And it’s probably tied to a deeper feeling of not being smart enough, good enough, worthy.
￼And then, when I have conversations with my partner, I assume the worst. Everything he says holds a deeper meaning, IMO, and I’m triggered to think a certain way. Which could be tied to: He’s lied to me in the past, or doesn’t think of my feelings, or he’s selfish.
