Irrational Beliefs and Challenges #6 of 13

Irrational Belief #6: I shouldn’t have to do this.

  • I am heavy because of my biology and my actions, and I can choose to stay this way or change it. If I decide to change it, I will because I want to, not because I have to; therefore I should manage my food if I want to change.
  • Life is not fair, and there are no rules that anyone should or should not do anything.
  • I use words like “should” to excuse me from engaging in behaviors that I find difficult.
Behavior: Keep log about how frequently you think about “shoulds.” Dispute the “shoulds” on every occasion.
