      Top 8 lessons learned From the Book: Feeling Great

      David D. Burns is the author of the book, Feeling Great. The book tried to help readers deal positively with negative thoughts and feelings.

      1) One of the most powerful discoveries Dr. Burns made is that your negative feelings always say something really good—even great—about you, and they will nearly always help you in important ways too.

      2) Your negative emotions result from your thoughts and not from the circumstances of your life.

      3) You feel the way you think. In other words, your negative emotions, like depression and anxiety, come from your thoughts and not from the circumstances of your life.

      4) The negative thoughts that upset you are nearly always distorted and twisted.

      They’re just not true. Depression and anxiety are the world’s oldest cons.

      5) When you can change the way you think, you can change the way you feel. Best of all, that change can happen rapidly, even if the feelings of depression and anxiety are severe.

      6) People may resist treatment because they have mixed or even negative feelings about recovery or will have to do something they don’t want to do.

      7) Before trying to make a change, consider:

      1. What are some benefits or advantages of this negative thought or feeling? How might it be helping you?

      2. What does this negative thought or feeling show about you and your core values that’s positive and awesome?

      8) Negative feelings and thoughts are not the result of what’s wrong with a person, but rather what’s right with them.

      This is why people often resist treatment. Their negative feelings can be helpful and appropriate because they reflect their core values as a human being..
