THE THIRD LAW OF BACKWARD
The Third Law of Backward Thinking states, "My twisted
thoughts are a fair and objective assessment of who I am and of
the world in which I live.
People with mood disorders have a fatal flaw in the way they
think and assess the world. They have twisted thinking.
Not only is their outlook negative, it's also distorted.
They take the facts of life and twist them until they are so
distorted that they may even become unrecognizable.
Their beliefs about themselves are twisted,
and their beliefs about the world are equally distorted.
Unfortunately, they are not aware of the twisted and negative
bias in the way they think.
If you take a metal bar and subject it to
pressure, the metal eventually distorts. If you take a
mind and subject it to high levels of stress, the mind often
produces distorted and twisted thoughts. Unfortunately,
the mind under stress believes that the twisted and distorted
thoughts actually reflect the world in which they live.
Twisted thinking isn't a reflection of the world.
It's a reflection of a mind operating under high levels of
stress. If you relieve the stress, usually the twisted
thinking subsides, and you realize that your twisted thoughts
are abnormal; they don't accurately reflect who you are or
the world in which you live.
Distorted, negative thoughts are a warning
telling you that there is a problem. When negative and
twisted thoughts take over, you must heed the warning and
immediately take steps to rectify the situation.
Don't believe your twisted thinking.
Closely examine such thoughts under the light of day, and it
won't be long before they cease to be a problem. You learn
to ignore those thoughts, because you know that you are not
listening to the voice of truth that can set you free. You
are hearing the sound of a stressed out mind slipping into
negativity and depression.
