Self-Defeating Beliefs

By May 25, 2012

Follow me on:

People with mood and/or anxiety disorders, including depression and panic disorder, are prone to having negative thought patterns and belief systems. Known as self-defeating beliefs, our personal values shape the way we feel about ourselves and our relationships. Mistaken beliefs can negatively impact our self-esteem and our social connections. Negative beliefs can even contribute to increased anxiety and feelings of loneliness.
