EMOTIONS SHOUT DOWN YOUR RATIONAL
The second reason people don't recognize their twisted
thoughts in depressive illness is because their rational mind
whispers while their emotions shout. It's not that the
voice of reason is weak, as much as it is that the voice of
emotion is so strong. Their rational mind whispers for
milliseconds, and their emotions shout for hours on end.
it's no wonder that depressed people focus on their emotions and
believe that they are what they feel, because that is what they
are hearing inside their head. The odds are massively
stacked against them because they never hear the facts of life
unless someone points them out. Inside their head, they
only hear their distorted and negative emotions shouting at
them, and they treat the thoughts that caused those emotions as
if they didn't exist.
Backward thinking happens when you focus on the emotions of
life, and ignore the facts that make those emotions happen.
The cure for backward
thinking involves helping people hear the inner voice that
created their negative emotions.
They need to learn how to
recognize the twisted thoughts that cause their twisted
emotions. Then they need to hold those distorted thoughts
up to the light of day and discover the truth that sets them
As long as you believe that you are what
you feel, you remain stuck in the Land of Depression. When
you understand that backward thinking is a trick you play on
yourself, there is real hope you will get better. When you
learn how to recognize and reject the twisted thoughts that
create your twisted emotions, you leave the Land of Depression
and start a new life.
