Is your imagination making you feel horrible?

  • Sharebar

"The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.." ? John Milton, Paradise Lost

The imagination is a wonderful thing. Except when it's not.

How many times a day would you say you imagine something that makes you feel bad?

5 times? 10 times? More?

What would life be like if you didn't do any of that? What if that time was used to imagine things going well instead?

To counteract this, start to challenge what your imagination throws up at you. "They are all going to hate me! ... Hold on, how do I know that? Some people will like me, some will think I'm okay, and some might be indifferent."

Your imagination may be creative, but it's not always helpful.
