I find it very hard to change my way of thinking. My life situations have never been normal. They have been dangerous and very disturbing. These situations left me very vulnerable to manipulation by those around me. Those people were in a position of authority, but also of trust, as a result they had power over me.
Those people by law had a duty to care for me. That was the very last thing they did. I am very critical of myself due to the treatment.
I am reading an article I found on PsychologyToday which discusses how we can change our way of thinking. The author Amy Morin states recognising “the blue thoughts” (2018). These are the thoughts that will lead us into a depressive state of mind and has an impact on our well-being (‘The Beginner’s Guide to Changing Negative Thoughts’).
My problem is, when I am in a depressive, a sad, state, beinging able to bring myself into a better mind set. I have no external people who can assist in changing my way of thinking. It is not like being on the television program ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ Where a contestant can phone a friend!
What do you do to help yourself when you are in a blue moment? blue’ bluemoment?
