Cognitive distortions are also known as thinking errors, thinking distortions, irrational thoughts, distorted thoughts, and negative automatic thoughts.
Cognitive distortions are ways that you twist up your thinking to see yourself, your situation, and other people in a negative light. They’re basically your mind playing tricks on you; convincing you that you’re not as good as everyone else, people don’t like you, you’re at fault, things are hopeless, or other negative beliefs. The problem is that these cognitive distortions are very convincing.

Cognitive distortions are:
automatic and happen without you realizing it
not accurate reflections of reality
something everyone does, but are much more prevalent in people suffering from anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems
all serve to validate your pessimistic outlook (things are hopeless, you’re worthless or less than)

I hate that my life is passing me by while I’m in a daze, unable to be fully present with people I love and experiences That should be wonderful memories to cherish. It’s just not fair to my family for me to be like this, I know that I do my best at this time but I miss the old me soo much.
I still isolate myself from others for fear of being a burden. I live my life in slow motion but around me everything is speeding by and it terrifies me how much of life I am missing.”
