Today, we are continuing our discussion around cognitive distortions. How do we navigate or overcome them as we grow and heal?

There are over 13 common cognitive distortions that we navigate over and over in daily thoughts. CDs are important to understand because they can negatively affect our emotions and choices. They can keep us stuck and interfere with our ability to set boundaries, gain self awareness, and live in community. We are bringing this to our listeners today because we agree with M. Scott Peck when he said, “Mental health is dedication to reality at all costs.”

As a reminder, we are not mental health professionals. We are professionals and leaders navigating the waters of betrayal trauma with you. Our knowledge comes from the countless hours of training and personal experience each of us have accumulated over the years.

We Will be Discussing:

  1. What are some ways you can navigate around CDs or eliminate them?
  2. Can you ever change or heal CD?
  3. What hope can we leave for a betrayed partner feeling crazy from the wide array of thoughts and emotions that she cycles through?
