INHERITED MIRRORS OF THE MIND
When you were young, your parents and culture placed mirrors in your mind, and as you grew older, you placed some of them there as well.
Now you face the challenge of deciding which mirrors give true reflections and which give distorted ones.
For every fact of life, there are a thousand different emotions that can be reflected in the mirrors of your mind. The emotions you feel depend upon which mirror you are looking in.
If your life has been exceptionally difficult, if you have been a victim of severe abuse and a great deal of emotional damage has accumulated in your mind, your mental mirrors will be extremely distorted, and your reflected emotions will make your life even more miserable.
Those emotions may seem so unbearable that you may think you want to die. At least if you were dead, those horrible emotions would no longer torture you.
Although there are thousands of mirrors lurking in the dark recesses of your mind, a few of those mirrors are common to people who suffer from mood disorders and depression.
These distorted mirrors have been given a fancy name - they are called cognitive distortions.
Cognitive therapy has listed at least ten major mirrors that distort the emotions that spring up in your mind.
It's useful to look at those ten mirrors and examine them in detail so you can learn to distinguish between a distorted mirror and one that gives a true reflection of who you are, and of the world in which you live.
