Destructive Beliefs Every Type Should Question

In the world of KBT it’s easy to think about just quick behavior changes. But truth is our beliefs reinforce our negative behaviors. There are lots of destructive beliefs out there and they often drive us to act against our best interests. That said, all beliefs have an important cause. You shouldn’t simply “stop” thinking this way. You should ask yourself why you think this way. Everyone should question their own thoughts and mindsets. And you should think long and hard about if it really is true.
It is true that the more negatively you view others, the less positively you allow yourself to act. Beliefs that others are deceitful, treacherous, hostile, or disruptive to you, can control you and how you act. It can keep you from being true to yourself, instead making you overly concerned with survival. These are the destructive beliefs every type should question.
