Worry and False Thinking
It’s not uncommon to worry that bad things might happen. We all have those negative thoughts. But, for some people, those thoughts can spiral out of control. ‘My boss didn’t reply straightaway, so they must be mad at me. They’re going to fire me! I’ll lose my job, my house and car, and my family will hate me...’
This sort of intrusive false thinking can make it hard to see clearly and can lead to stress and anxiety. The world, and your role in it, feels hostile and hopeless.
