I Feel So Down :(

The thing is...I am a girl and I always feel like the world is against me, I know I shouldn't think this way but I just can't help it. I am almost always thinking negative thoughts and I get really paranoid. Just like for instance - I have been going out with my boyfriend for quite a while now, I am madly in love with him however recently I keep thinking things like "what if he dumps me" and "what if he cheats on me with another girl?" I really can't help feeling this way, and I am so afraid to lose him because it will just break me completely. A while back I had been going out with someone who dumped me after 2 weeks and that hurt me real bad, that's why I am in fear of losing my current boyfriend
I really don't know how to stop thinking negative thoughts, it isn't just thoughts about my love life but everything else aswell. I just want to start feeling happier again.

Re: I Feel So Down :(

Practice thinking positive thoughts....seriously. They don't just come by themselves, you sort of have to kick the negative thoughts out of the way and let the positive ones rein supreme. But...that's easier said than done

Maybe look into some therapy to help with the thoughts. It's tough when you are used to thinking negatively. Sometimes it feels like it's all we know how to do...and maybe it is.

What I do...is I journal the times when the neg thoughts take over...I write it all down. Then when it turns out that I was TOTALLY wrong about the situation (which is usually the case), I write that down as well. I make myself look at those journal entries a few times a month. Just to remind myself how wrong I was before.

That's something that's helped me gain more pos thoughts than negative. I dont' have pos thoughts all the time yet, but I've gone from probably 90% first thought neg to maybe 30% first thought neg. It will take some effort, but I think with therapy and some practice (it REALLY is very important to practice every day in the beginning) you can make a difference. Good luck
