Reply To: fears and phrasing
What Brian wrote sums it up. Also ask:
– What would I or someone else have to believe about themselves or that situation to feel worried?
I personally would not recommend arguing with your feeling. You felt what you would describe as worry. You can still CT the worry from the people, events or situations which seemed to cause the feeling.
To give an example:
Let's say you had a feeling of worry of someone mocking you.
You could CT all those events or imagined outcomes as close to a 0 rating as possible.
You could also use the question above and may come up with beliefs like “People are out to hurt me”, “I am not acceptable”, “Life is cruel” and lots of other beliefs that could be blasted away.
This is just an example, of course, but hopefully it makes the premise a bit more clear.
Please let us know how you get on.
