Have some new questions, though I'm still waiting on a reply for this:

“- Does PSTEC eliminate emotions FOREVER, or just reset them? For example, let's say I CT on a behavior someone does that annoys me or even hurts me. Will the emotion disappear forever, or will it eventually come back again in the same situation? (I've noticed that CTing on a person's behavior somehow usually ELIMINATES the behavior from that person entirely, but if I'm in the same kind of situation (let's say bullying) with a different person, will the emotion come back again?)

I'm wondering if I should focus on the behaviors of people at all, or if I should just work on my own beliefs.

– How would you suggest I word something like “responsibility” or “trust”. I've realized that I have issues with both, but I don't know how to trust someone, nor do I know what it means to take responsibility (I have an idea, but it's hit and miss, to the dismay of people around me lol) Anyhow, Can I do the CT Negative like this:

“I currently believe that i can't trust myself/others” or is that wrong?

If it's the wrong form, how would you correct it?”

and this:

“PSTEC positive statements. Do they have to be a certain length like the PSTEC Negatives? Or can they be any length?”

My new question regards PSTEC Negative.

I'm currently working on some of the lefkoe beliefs. One of which is “Mistakes and failure are bad”. Now, the issue I'm having is coming up with counter statements. How do you counter morally-charged statements?

The current way I've done it is like so:

Negative statement: “It is my belief that mistakes and failure are bad”

Counter statements:

– I have learned from mistakes in the past
– Taking risks help me grow
– Mistakes and failure are only bad if I know better but make a mistake or fail anyways

Thanks.
