Thinking about things in a realistic way allows us to make better decisions and to take action more effectively. Attuning ourselves to reality can bring out the best in us and can enhance the quality of our relationships. When we base our thinking on the reality of a situation, our emotions can correspond appropriately to the situation and can be expressed appropriately as well.
When our thoughts become distorted, falling away from their grounding in reality, it often becomes difficult to find the best course of action to take when making decisions. We cling to distorted thoughts, we limit our options and our decisions often lack a basis in reality. This can lead us to feel helpless, anxious, and hopeless when trying to deal with real-world issues. We may find ourselves falling into the same bad situation repeatedly, never really learning from the lessons of the past.
Let’s look at a number of ways in which we may engage in distorted thinking.
We seldom question how we think. Our thinking is an integral part of our daily experience. It may never occur to us that our feelings, our moods, and the way we deal with situations, and how we handle our relationships are very dependent on the clarity of our thinking. Many people use coaching as a way of exploring ways in which to think more clearly about things.
