Stop feeding negative core beliefs
Have you ever watched the film "Little shop of horrors"? Seymour's plant tasted one drop of blood and only wanted to be fed more. Seymour's life headed down a dark path trying to satisfy his hungry plant. Our negative core beliefs are just like Seymour's plant. The more you feed them, the more they will manipulate you into gaining distorted evidence that supports and feeds them. The only way to stop your negative core beliefs from sending you down a dark path is to stop feeding them and begin challenging them. Don't be like Seymour. Don't let your mind be a little shop of horror.
