    I often think of myself as useless and unwanted. My parents were not the best. Luckily i have my grandparents who give me all the support i need. Despite this I’m unable to get over the thought that I’m worthless. I think it comes from my upbringing, both with my parents and in school. I never stand up for myself & never have. Recently I’m finally able to half hearted accept compliments. Although I don’t agree with most of them, i will acknowledge them. Which for me is a big step. Doing so causes me emotional pain. I want to accept them but i feel unworthy somehow. Negative thinking has been a part of my life forever but I’m finally learning to change. Thanks for the article.

    This article was a shocker to me. I didn’t even know all these thinking patterns were negative! The worst part of it though is that I’ve tried to research for years what disorder it is that I have, and every single thing on this list perfectly described me 100% unlike all articles I’ve read. I’m only 25; is it possible to correct this entire list of negative thinking patterns all in the same brain?

    Cogentive Behaval Therapy is wonderful. I did Mind-Over-Mood class. This changed my life more than any thing. It is based on the book with the same name. I also took a OCD class. This was helpful. I think this is the best therapy.
