ou brain is wired to be negative. It’s designed to be a threat detector. Negativity just happens to be our most useful cognitive tool for survival. If it’s not managed well, can be a major contributor to relationship problems, depression, and lower levels of achievement and performance than we desire. This happens when our brain resorts to COGNITIVE DISTORTIONS to process experiences and choose how to behave. These distortions end up being major derailers for us.
