THE FIRST LAW OF BACKWARD THINKING
The First Law of Backward Thinking states that I am what I feel.
People living in the Land of Depression believe that they are what they feel.
Distorted and twisted emotions rule their lives. Although this makes them miserable, that is the price they pay to live in the Land of Depression.
If you believe that you are what you feel, you are thinking backward.
Your emotions are supposed to be the result of your thoughts. First you think a thought, and then an emotion happens in response to that thought. Thoughts should come first.
In the Land of Depression, people believe that thoughts don't come first. Feelings come first, and they rule.
When depressed people wake up in the morning, they aren't interested in the facts. What they want to know is their feelings.
They check out how they feel, and that sets the tone for the entire day.
If their first emotions are negative and depressing, it starts a cascade of negative and depressing thoughts that follow them all day long.
People living in the Land of Depression begin their day with the question, "How do I feel?" Then, they spend the rest of the day answering that question.
They are experts at making their thoughts consistent with the way that they feel.
They are good at thinking backwards, because they do it most of the time.
