The Importance Of Conditioning Your Thoughts To Be Positive

Tired of being depressed and unhappy, I decided to seek psychiatric help. My therapist used Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in my treatment. It’s important to know that I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) that was brought about by my Obsessive, Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD). After many, many, months of therapy and self-searching, it finally all came together for me. I realized the cause of my unhappiness was in my way of thinking. I was negatively interpreting things that were happening around me. I learned I had ‘conditioned’ myself to be negative by my negative thinking. (See Understanding Neuroplasticity) Being OCPD, I was obsessing on negative thoughts, and that was causing my unhappiness and failures. That’s when I started my new obsessive journey to understand and practice ‘emotional conditioning’. Now my life has turned around. I feel blessed because I’m living a life of contentment. I still have OCPD, but instead of being my curse, I consider it a blessing because I live being OCPD with a happy heart. I still strive to be perfect, but I accept ‘good enough’ because I can always go back and make an edit, when necessary. And my obsessive behavior patterns allow me to explore happily and deeply anything that catches my interest, as it did with ‘emotional conditioning’. I learned that ‘thoughts’ create ‘emotions’. (See Thoughts Create Emotions) I learned to observe, and then interrupt, my negative thoughts, so that I can then deliberately choose to think positive thoughts. That has changed my life for the better. The change has been dramatic, like day and night. This is why I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of conditioning your thoughts to be positive. Just do it – for no better reason than you deserve to feel really good.
