I go to counseling regularly; every two weeks, to be exact.
I currently participate in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a form of treatment that examines relationships between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Our main man here at PsychCentral.com, Dr. John Grohol, wrote an article about 15 Cognitive Distortions, which are ways our mind convinces us of something that isn’t true.
In therapy, I examine the popular cognitive distortions, learn to recognize when I do them, and in turn, try to eradicate them as recurring thought patterns.
Months of analysis determined that “jumping to conclusions”, also called “fortune telling”, is my “favorite” cognitive distortion.
