THE ABC TOOL:
1) list the irrational Beliefs (list the beliefs that led to your reaction/behavior)
2) list replacement rational Beliefs (are measurable, objective, rooted in reality)
-Consequences (of A)
your self defeating behaviors that you want to change, such as anger, anxiety, depression, guilt, self-loathing, feelings of worthlessness, awfulizing, low frustration tolerance, etc. The Consequences are what you feel about/from (A).

“In life, our first job is this: to divide and distinguish things into two categories: externals I cannot control, but the choices I make with regard to them I do control. Where will I find good and bad? In me, in my choices.”
