Cognitive Distortions: break the negative feedback loop.

It took me a long time to realize that there is a term for how people can be unkind to themselves. While we can be accepting of other people's faults we can terribly unforgiving of our own. We can become convinced of our ability to read the intentions of others actions, usually to read in some kind of dissatifaction of our efforts.
These are both examples of cognitive distorions and they are more common than you may think.

In this 30 minute talk, I'll review a great number of different congitive distortions and some helpful tips I've learned how to combat them.

I hope you come away with a greater understanding of how we can be unkind to ourselves and how to break this negative feedback loop.
