emoticon Laura!

Seriously, though, this list is good - it shows so many examples of "stinking thinking".

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

That's why I just try not to think. Everyone is safer that way. emoticon

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't more people happy

Here are some of the major ‘thinking errors’ that interrupt our ability to take responsibility. Judge for yourself how you see them impacting your relationships.

1. Denial: “I am not doing anything wrong. I have no problem.”

2. Blame-shifting: “It’s not me that’s doing anything wrong. It’s not my fault. It’s your fault.”

3. Victim Stance: “I’m getting a raw deal. Nothing ever goes my way. I’m getting the blame for everything.”

4. Minimization/ Sanitizing: “Sure, I did something wrong, but it’s not that big of a deal. You’re making a mountain out of a molehill.”

5. Projection: “You are the one who has all the issues you’re blaming me about.”

6. Excuse Making: “Yes, I suppose I did it, but I didn’t mean to do it. It certainly wasn’t my intention to hurt you. If it weren’t for _____ I wouldn’t have done it.”

7. Power Play: “You can’t make me go to counseling/ treatment/ recovery groups. I’m not going to go and you can’t make me.”

8. Black and White Thinking/ Extreme Thinking: “I never get any credit for anything I do. You’re always the one who gets everything you ask for.”

9. Catastrophizing: “If you make me get help we’ll go broke for sure.”

10. Grandiosity: “I know what I think and what I need to do. I don’t need any help. I’ve got a handle on things.”
