Choose a specific thought that you’d like to work with, such asI’ll never find a joborIf this relationship ends,I’ll never get over it. Then challenge this thought by asking any of the following questions:

  • Is this thought really true?
  • How do I know it’s true?
  • What is the evidence for this thought?
  • What is the evidence against this thought?
  • Can I think of any times when this thought has not been true?
  • Is this thought helping me or hurting me?
  • Who would I be if I let go of this thought?
  • What could I do if I let go of this thought?
  • Am I willing to release this thought?
  • What’s the worst that could happen if I let go of this thought? Can I live with that?
