I feel so guilty. Like such a bad person. Again, I know it’s mind reading but if I really made someone mad, or upset, I’m going to feel like the worst person to walk this earth.
Mind reading is one of my big thinking traps too! I don’t really have a foolproof method for dealing with it, but I generally try to reframe my thoughts by thinking “what are the other possibilities of what they could be thinking?” and then trying to accept the uncertainty that I have no way of knowing which thing people actually think. Or I will try to imagine them thinking the worst possible thing and then sit in that fear and those imaginal exposures until it starts to be less terrifying. It’s definitely still a work in progress for me though!
Thank you so much. I’ll try.
