EMOTIONS SHOUT DOWN YOUR RATIONAL MIND
The second reason people don't recognize their twisted thoughts in depressive illness is because their rational mind whispers while their emotions shout.
It's not that the voice of reason is weak, as much as it is that the voice of emotion is so strong.
Their rational mind whispers for milliseconds, and their emotions shout for hours on end.
It's no wonder that depressed people focus on their emotions and believe that they are what they feel, because that is what they are hearing inside their head.
The odds are massively stacked against them because they never hear the facts of life unless someone points them out.
Inside their head, they only hear their distorted and negative emotions shouting at them, and they treat the thoughts that caused those emotions as if they didn't exist.
Backward thinking happens when you focus on the emotions of life, and ignore the facts that make those emotions happen.
The cure for backward thinking involves helping people hear the inner voice that created their negative emotions.
They need to learn how to recognize the twisted thoughts that cause their twisted emotions.
Then they need to hold those distorted thoughts up to the light of day and discover the truth that sets them free.
As long as you believe that you are what you feel, you remain stuck in the Land of Depression.
When you understand that backward thinking is a trick you play on yourself, there is real hope you will get better.
When you learn how to recognize and reject the twisted thoughts that create your twisted emotions, you leave the Land of Depression and start a new life.
