Section 3: Spark-related Tips

Ideas on how to deal with feeling attacked.

A set of tips for dealing with all anger.

Great article on how to identify and ‘master’ feelings.

How to identify the core emotion that’s upsetting you

organize your feelings

List your concerns or problems and assign the emotions, thoughts, and beliefs attached. If you’re unsure what those thoughts are, Robistow recommends a “So what does that mean?” exercise.

The “So what” exercise example:

Problem: Everyone expects me to rearrange my schedule to fit theirs.

Feelings or emotions: anger, resentment, hurt

Ask: Answer (to find your underlying belief):
So what? So they think what they have going on is more important than what I have going on.
So what? So that’s selfish of them to not even think about how this inconveniences me.
So what? So if I want to see them or be part of the event, I just have to suck it up.
So what does that mean? It means that if I don’t make the effort, I’ll never get to spend time with them…

Possible conclusion: which means that I’ll be all alone, and they’ll eventually forget about me. I’m afraid I’m forgettable, or they don’t care about me.

The meaning we uncover in the exercise might feel brutal. But that’s when the true work of CBT, or organizing your feelings, comes into play.

“Look for exceptions,” Robistow says. “Ask yourself, ‘Is that really true? Or can I find evidence that contradicts that belief?’”

In the example provided, the person might think of times when others have gone out of their way to see them or expressed having a blast after hanging out. They’ll know that the conclusion they arrived at is false.
