How To Overcome Your Negative Thoughts

Do You Understand Where Your Negative Thoughts Originate From And Know How To Overcome Them?

At The Depression Project, we've had millions and millions of comments on our social media posts, and sadly, many of them have been people saying:

  • "I'm unlovable"
  • "I'm a failure"
  • "I'm worthless"
  • "I'm hopeless"
  • "I'm a burden"
  • "I'm weak"
  • "I'm not good enough"
  • "Everyone else is better than me"
  • "I'm a bad mom / dad / partner"
  • "I can't do anything right"

If you have depression, then there's a good chance that you can relate to one or more of these negative thoughts (among others). And, for this reason, we decided to write How To Overcome Your Negative Thoughts.

Here's A Breakdown Of Exactly What This Book Will Cover:

INTRODUCTION: What Negative Thoughts Do People With Depression Commonly Experience – And What Triggers Them?

To begin with, we'll identify the most common negative thoughts that people with depression struggle with - as told to us by members of The Depression Project's community. Additionally, we'll also pinpoint six of the most common ways that these negative thoughts are triggered: by/within your interpersonal relationships; by your emotions; by certain behaviours; by how you feel physically; by your environment; and by common, everyday events.

PART 1: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Strategies To Help You Cope With And Overcome Your Negative Thoughts

A central tenet of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is that your thoughts will have a direct impact on your mood and your behaviours. For example:

  • Thinking the negative thought "I'm a failure" can make you feel worthless;
  • Thinking the negative thought "I'm a burden" can cause you to feel shame and self-hatred;
  • Thinking the negative thought "I'm not good enough" can influence you to not try something that you really want to do;
  • Each of these negative thoughts – plus many, many more – can contribute to you feeling depressed.

So, in Part 1 of this book, we're going to teach you a wide variety of CBT strategies, in order to help you:

  • Cope with and overcome your negative thoughts;
  • Feel much better as a result, and much less inclined to engage in maladaptive behaviours that can end up hurting you;
  • Take a big step closer towards overcoming depression.

    Part 2: Digging Deeper - Getting To The Root Of Your Negative Thoughts, Conquering Negative Core Beliefs About Yourself, And Replacing Them With Positive Core Beliefs

    While on the surface, your negative thoughts are being automatically triggered by/within your interpersonal relationships; by your emotions; by certain behaviours; by how you feel physically; by your environment and/or by common, everyday events, below the surface, they're also likely being fuelled and intensified by deep-seated, negative core beliefs about yourself.

    Negative core beliefs about yourself are developed over time - often during childhood - and arguably their most common starting point is one or more difficult, painful experiences. For example:

    • If you were bullied throughout school, then it may have led to you developing the negative core belief "I'm a loser".
    • If you didn't achieve one or more goals that were extremely important to you, then it may have led to you developing the negative core belief "I'm a failure".
    • If you were neglected as a child, then it may have led to you developing the negative core belief "I'm unlovable".

    Consequently, in the second part of this book, we will:

    1. Firstly, explain how negative core beliefs about yourself fuel negative thoughts.
    2. Secondly, we'll help you pinpoint where any negative core beliefs you have about yourself originate from.
    3. Thirdly, we're going to help you undo your negative core belief(s) about yourself. In particular, using a number of the CBT strategies that we shared with you in the first part of this book, we're going to help you re-frame the way you perceive any past experiences that your negative core belief(s) originate from - so that you can view them in a much more positive, accurate way, and thereby let go of the negative core belief(s) you have attached to them.
    4. Lastly, we're going to help you replace your negative core belief(s) about yourself with positive core beliefs - which will contribute to you having less negative thoughts moving forwards, feeling significantly better about yourself, and once again taking a big step closer towards overcoming depression.
