  2. 2. Which do you believe to be true orhas been suggested to you to be true (1)1. It is absolute necessary to have love and approval from others almost all the time.2. We must be unfailingly competent and perfect in all we undertake.3. People who harm me or commit misdeeds are evil, wicked and villainous individuals, and I am right to blame and punish them.4. It is horrible, terrible or catastrophic when things do not go the way I want them to go.5. External events cause most human misery, and I have little ability to control my misery or to control my feelings or to rid myself of depression, hostility and similar feelings.6. I find it easier to avoid facing many of lifes difficulties and self- responsibilities than to undertake some form of self-discipline.Property of Chandra Kant.

  3. 3. Which do you believe to be true orhas been suggested to you to be true (2)7. If something seems dangerous or fearsome, I become preoccupied with and upset about it.8. My past remains all-important, and because something once strongly influenced my life, it will keep determining my feelings and behaviour today.9. People and things ought to turn out better than they do, and I must find quick and good solutions to lifes problems.10. I can achieve happiness even by inertia and inaction or by passively and uncommittedly ―enjoying yourself.‖11. I need to have a high degree of order or certainty to feel comfortable.12. My general self-worth and self-acceptance depends upon my performance and the degree to which people approve of my actions.Property of Chandra Kant. All rights reservedProprietary and Confidential. 3
  4. 4. Emotions: to feel the physical (bodily) consequences of ourthoughts.A friend is due to meet you for dinner at your house at 7:00.

  5. 5. 10 potential reactions to the same event Thoughts Emotions That idiot has no right to treat me badly – who does she think she is? Angry This lack of consideration means that my partner doesn’t love me Depressed This must mean that my partner is about to leave me for someone else Jealous I don’t deserve to be treated poorly because I always do my best to be Hurt considerate to my partner I must have done something serious to upset my partner for her to treat Guilty me like this This inconsideration is a sign that my partner is losing interest in me Anxious Aha! Now I have a good enough reason to break up with my partner, Happy which I’ve been wanting to do for ages! My partner has done a bad thing by treating me in this way, and I’m not Annoyed prepared to put up with it I really wish my partner had been more considerate because we’re Disappointed usually highly considerate of each other My partner must have found out something despicable about me to Ashamed treat me in this wayProperty of Chandra Kant.
