When things go wrong in our lives or don’t work out as we hoped, and we feel we could have done better, we sometimes have negative and self-critical thoughts and feelings.

These may take the form of feeling worthless, useless or inferior etc. However, people can also try to be supportive of themselves .

Below are a series of thoughts and feelings that people sometimes have. Read each statement carefully and choose which best describes how much each statement is true for you.
