What Does This Say About Me?
- Think of another recent situation in which you had a strong mood reaction
- Answer the question "What does this say or mean about me?"
- Complete each "If this is true what does this say or mean about me?" statement
- End the exercise when you arrive at an 'All or nothing' absolute statement about yourself
- DO NOT be surprised if your 'All or nothing' absolute statement seems to be about something "unrelated" to the original topic/situation - it most commonly is!
