There’s no question that how we think can have a huge impact on our behavior and mental wellbeing. Sometimes people think in ways that are unhelpful or counterproductive to living well. For example, people may think there are aspects of themselves that they’re unable to change, obstacles they’re incapable of overcoming or elements working against them to keep them from living their best life.
Thoughts like these can have a profound way of influencing one’s behavior and emotions, and even make a person dysfunctional. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help by directly confronting such thoughts and change them for the better.
