Challenge

  • What's the worst possible outcome?

    • Write it out and spare no detail. Be as over the top as possible.

  • What could I do differently?

  • If I was an outside observer what would I think of this?

    • What advice would I give someone else?

    • Am I holding myself to a higher standard than I would someone else?

  • Will this still be important to me in 6 months? A year? 20 years?

  • Consider Using Thought Diffusion or Thought Replacement to challenge your feelings.
