Negative Thinking Patterns: Mental Filtering

When we use a mental filter, we “filter in” some of the information, while we “filter out” other types of information; we focus on one aspect and ignore the rest (this is also referred to as ‘tunnel vision’). Often, we are filtering in the negative and disregarding the positive or neutral. For example, after an enjoyable day, there is one small disagreement and we remember just that one part of the day.

When we focus on the negative parts, it is likely that we’ll keep experiencing the negative feelings that go along with it, thus distorting the truth, and often causing lots of distress.

Through the years, many clients and students have reached out for guidance and support. They came seeking encouragement and assistance with relationship challenges. They asked tough questions. They explored their role in the relationship. They enhanced their communication and conflict resolution skills.  They adopted productive mindsets that helped them enrich their marriage, family life and so many other aspects of their lives.

Adai Ad’s (JOT) Just One Thing series was developed to share short and practical relationship insights, tools and mindsets every morning (via whatsapp and social media). These are widely received all over the world.
