Girl Im having one of those days too… unfortuantely.
Cognitive Distortions that Add to Anxiety, Worry, and Stress
All-or-nothing thinking - Looking at things in black-or-white categories, with no middle ground. “If I fall short of perfection, I’m a total failure.”
Overgeneralization - Generalizing from a single negative experience, expecting it to hold true forever. “I didn’t get hired for the job. I’ll never get any job.”
The mental filter - Focusing on the negatives while filtering out all the positives. Noticing the one thing that went wrong, rather than all the things that went right.
Diminishing the positive - Coming up with reasons why positive events don’t count. “I did well on the presentation, but that was just dumb luck.”
Jumping to conclusions - Making negative interpretations without actual evidence. You act like a mind reader, “I can tell she secretly hates me.” Or a fortune teller, “I just know something terrible is going to happen.”
Catastrophizing - Expecting the worst-case scenario to happen. “The pilot said we’re in for some turbulence. The plane’s going to crash!”
Emotional reasoning - Believing that the way you feel reflects reality. “I feel frightened right now. That must mean I’m in real physical danger.”
‘Shoulds’ and ‘should-nots’ - Holding yourself to a strict list of what you should and shouldn’t do and beating yourself up if you break any of the rules
Labeling - Labeling yourself based on mistakes and perceived shortcomings. “I’m a failure; an idiot; a loser.”
Personalization - Assuming responsibility for things that are outside your control. “It’s my fault my son got in an accident. I should have warned him to drive carefully in the rain.”

Tossing around the idea of getting this tattooed on my wrist. I’ve wanted a tattoo for forever, and since I got diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, I’ve wanted one with that sort of theme as a way to pay tribute to this mental disease I have and give me strength and inspiration to keep going and get through this. So I came across this while looking up ideas online. This symbol is a Nordic rune called kenaz meaning “torch” or “torchlight”. Runes were believed to have magical properties tied to them, and this rune, among other things, was said to dispel anxiety and fear. It is also a symbol for wisdom, insight, creativity, solutions, and enlightenment. I thought it’d be cool, though it would suck to have to explain to people that it’s not a greater/less than symbol…Maybe I could get the word “kenaz” tattooed under it.
…up to 200,000 people angry with high costs and poor public services took to the streets. Protesters in Rio de Janeiro burned cars and looted buildings as police attempted to disperse them with teargas and rubber bullets. Aerial images showed thousands of people attempting to storm the congress building in Brasilia. The rallies…are some of the biggest ever seen in the country…
Kanye West is undoubtedly one of the most charismatic, talented, yet misunderstood artists of our generation. Since his rise to stardom in 2003-2004, he has transcended the world of hip-hop music and become a cultural icon. At the same time, he has been the center of a great deal of…
Hey ya’ll my friend wrote this article and he just decided to join tumblr (his main blog is hosted on blogger). He writes about some pretty amazing things and you all should follow him!
I love this new trend of actresses calling reporters out on their bullshit.
Can I just, Renner’s face is the second and third frames. He’s so disappointed in the male race at that moment. And so proud of Scarlett.
Scarlett Johansen, you are badass.
