Growing up I had a lot of self-esteem issues, I often thought negatively of myself, typically had distorted thinking patterns in nine out of ten situations and I was really depressed because of that.
Working through this book helped me to recognize my distorted thinking patterns and habits and helped me learn how to reverse those patterns, really what it did is it provided me with the tools I have now that help me to not take offense at things others say, helped me learn to view life objectively, helped me avoid jumping to conclusions in relationships.
This book gave me the life that I've always wanted, because I know how to get through life rationally now, it's really helped me to feel empowered.
If you struggle with keeping peace in your relationships, being easily offended, or if you think that everyone hates you (which I can assure you is not true) then I'd recommend purchasing this book and working through it. It will open your eyes.
The paper copy of this book though, is wonderful. Buy it instead!
It was so hard for me to initially recognize my distorted thinking patterns, but now I can recognize and label them almost instantly and I definitely operate in them much much less than before. I have written all in this book and will keep this one permanently in my library for a reference or if I need some encouragement.
Some pages took me hours to complete, because I was in denial that "my way" of seeing things was wrong. When I finally gave in, that the author was right, and did the work, I FINALLY started to see. It's like a veil has been lifted off my eyes. If you aren't going to do the work, the very hard work involved, please don't buy the book because you will think it's not good and give it a bad rating when in my opinion that would be undeserved.
Oh and in my opinion there is no way to finish this in ten days. For me it has taken months and I'm still working in it.
