Catastrophic thinking patterns……are women more prone to this type of thinking than men? If so why?
My husband and I had a discussion this morning. He said to me that he use to be very social before he met me. He said that he stop socializing with people for fear of what I would say or think about his interaction with that person. I can’t say this was good news for me to hear. My response to him was to stop talking. I told him how could I continue knowing that he felt I was the worst thing that ever happen to him. As you can see, this thinking was catastrophic to our conversation.
Did he say I was the worst thing that ever happen to him?
Did I accept the true of what he said about me?
Was I blaming myself for the actions he is taking?
I’ve apologized to my husband many times for causing this feeling in him. I also asked him why is it that he has not acknowledged that he created this situation in the first place.
