We can't get rid of our thoughts, but we can generate more helpful and realistic thoughts. This exercise takes you through the process of Socratic questioning, which will help you to engage in more effective ways of thinking about a situation.

I like the concept of fact checking thoughts as they arise. Especially the ones that have emotional pull. Considering them as something needing to be fact checked can in itself create space between me and the thought, while addressing its origin and weight. Thank you 🙏🏼

I learned that my anxiety towards Amanda and that situation isn’t about her. It’s about me. I feel like I failed her as a friend and I feel like I’m not a good friend.
