Your beliefs about yourself have tremendous impact on your life. They influence how you interact with others, how you navigate challenges from personal situations to chronic pain, and how you view your future. What would change if you could chip away at dysfunctional beliefs?
Your beliefs play a role in three aspects of how you deal with any situation, from personal or situational stress, to chronic pain.
- How you perceive and interpret the situation.
- What you chose to focus on about the situation.
- What you remember about all other situations you’ve experienced that are similar in some way, and what you will remember about this situation.
CBT aims to build the skills that let you use your beliefs in a more balanced, rational and functional way.
