Narcissistic Abuse CBT Thought Journal

What is a Thought Record?

A thought record is a helpful tool used in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help you manage and challenge negative thoughts, especially those stemming from difficult experiences like narcissistic abuse. It allows you to understand your thoughts and feelings better, recognize patterns, and replace negative beliefs with healthier, more positive ones.

How Can a Thought Record Help with Narcissistic Abuse?

Narcissistic abuse can leave you feeling insecure, unworthy, and doubting your own perceptions. A thought record helps you take control of these thoughts and rebuild your self-esteem and confidence. It guides you through the process of examining the validity of these negative beliefs and finding more balanced, positive perspectives.

How to Use a Thought Record

Here’s a simple, friendly guide to using a thought record for healing from narcissistic abuse:

Identify the Situation

Start by writing down a specific situation that triggered negative feelings. This could be a memory, a comment someone made, or a current event that reminds you of the abuse.

Record Your Initial Reaction

Note down the immediate thoughts and feelings you had in response to the situation. Be honest and detailed about how it made you feel.

List Your Negative Thoughts

Write out the negative thoughts or beliefs that came up. These might be things like, “I am unlovable,” “I can’t do anything right,” or “No one cares about me.”

Examine the Evidence

Look for evidence that supports these negative thoughts. Then, look for evidence that contradicts them. This helps you see whether your thoughts are based on facts or the distortions caused by the abuse.
Challenge and Reframe

Using the evidence you found, challenge the negative thoughts and come up with alternative, more positive beliefs. For example, if you thought, “I am unlovable,” you might reframe it to, “I am worthy of love and respect.”

Reflect on the Outcome

Write down how this process made you feel. Do you feel less anxious or more confident? Reflect on the shift in your emotions after challenging the negative thoughts.

Using thought records regularly can help you rebuild your self-esteem and develop healthier thought patterns. It’s a powerful step towards healing from the impact of narcissistic abuse and reclaiming your sense of self-worth and confidence.
