thought record

I’m a life coach, crisis counselor, and future social worker, and today I (shockingly) took the advice I give to so many others and worked through the unhelpful thoughts swirling in my brain surrounding my disabilities and recent flare-ups (on zebra paper of course). This is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy tool called a thought record. I’m a facts and data kind of person, so I found this super helpful for re-examining things logically.

It’s incredibly normal and understandable for spoonies to struggle with fighting off all the internalized ableism, guilt, shame, and fear we live with. I wanted to share this as a reminder to myself and y’all the power of treating yourself with the same compassion you show to others.
