(1) "Black and White"
When things don't turn out the way we expected, have you ever immediately judged yourself a failure and then become extremely depressed and morose?
This is "black and white" self-defeating thinking. When you have such thoughts, your behaviour will also become negative.
You have to reason with yourself: this is not a permanent failure, but just a setback on the road to success. Letting go of self-defeating thinking patterns is an important skill for preventing depression, anxiety, and stress.
For example, if you are trying to lose weight and you take a bite of ice cream, if you think, "It's over, my weight loss plan has failed", this is a self-defeating thought. Then I guess you'll swallow the whole box of ice cream in one go. It doesn't make you better.
You should ditch the self-defeating way of thinking, and you should think like this: Fortunately, I just took a small bite, stop, my weight loss plan will continue to move forward!
Master this technique, and you'll love yourself better, exercise self-control more easily, and achieve more of your goals.
