My distorted thought or belief is:
What thought tends to surface over and over?
And it causes me to feel:
When you hear this thought and choose to believe it, even though you know in your head it isn't true, how does it make you feel?
That feeling makes me want to (do what?):
I want to stop and correct my distortion to this fact:
Write out the FACT you know in your head to be true in a complete sentence. Remember, facts aren't positive or negative, good or bad, they just ARE.
This reality-based, truthful thought or belief makes me feel:
When you hear this fact and choose to listen to it, how do you feel?

When you feel this way, how do you want to behave differently?
Thanks for all your hard work! Give yourself a pat on the back!
You and the people you love will be the beneficiaries of every effort you make to heal and grow.
