Is Black And White Thinking Keeping You From Living Your Best Life?
Life is complicated but black-and-white thinking, also known as splitting, will make you believe that the world is filled with absolutes.
It’s either ALL or NOTHING. I’m RIGHT or WRONG. You’re FOR or AGAINST me.
Thinking of the world as black and white as opposed to 50 shades of grey can have a negative impact on your mental state, not to mention your relationships and self-esteem. This type of thinking is common in people diagnosed with chronic depression, anxiety and borderline personality disorder.
This video from Therapy In A Nutshell breaks down black and white thinking in simple terms, and offers cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques for noticing negative thought patterns and replacing cognitive distortions with healthy thoughts.
