Do you often worry "have I done something wrong?"
In early 2022, The Depression Project posed a question to our 3,000,000+ person social media community:
What worrying thoughts are most commonly associated with depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses?
Thousands of people responded, and one of the most common worrying thoughts people mentioned was:
“Have I done something wrong?”
Unfortunately, this can indeed be a very natural thought for people with anxiety in particular to experience, and it can be triggered in many different situations, such as:
- When someone doesn’t respond to a message straight away;
- When there’s a change in someone’s facial expression or tone of voice;
- When someone’s mood seems different from usual;
- When someone acts differently to the way you’d expect them to;
- When someone reduces or cuts off contact with you.
If you can relate, then since no human being is perfect, in some situations when you find yourself worrying “have I done something wrong?”, the answer may in fact be “yes”.
However, in many situations – or perhaps even most situations – you genuinely haven’t done anything wrong at all – in which case, rather than serving any useful purpose, this worrying thought is doing nothing but causing you to feel unnecessarily on edge, stressed out and/or panicked.
And, for this reason, we’ve put together this cognitive behavioural therapy-based journal, in order to:
- Help you determine whether or not you actually have done something wrong;
- Help you silence this worrying thought when you haven’t done anything wrong, and prevent it from fuelling your anxiety, depression and/or another mental health issue.
In order to help you achieve these objectives, this journal includes a range of guided questions – also referred to as prompts – for you to thoughtfully consider and then write out your response to. Each prompt is grounded in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which as you may know, is a leading form of treatment for anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and a wide range of other mental health issues. In particular, CBT helps you develop healthier thought patterns (among other things), and because journalling has been shown to help you develop perspective, regulate emotions and improve your psychological outlook, CBT-based journalling is, in our opinion, a highly effective method of freeing you from the worrying thought “have I done something wrong?”
