I am afraid I am getting sick.
I am afraid I am getting depressed.
I am afraid that I will never feel good again.
Sometimes just changing one word around can make a difference.
What if every time you started thinking that you were getting worse, you changed the words to I am afraid that I am Getting Better.
It makes us laugh when we say it and we begin to realize the craziness of our self talk. For the most part, we do get sick and then we get better. So why would we only focus on the first part of the thought.
How many times can you say I am afraid that I am getting better today?
