Self-Talk: Overgeneralization

Acts 10:9-16; 19-20; 23-35

Oftentimes, our inner monologues can be clouded by exaggerated, blanket statements. Whether we’re aware of it or not, terms such as “never” and “always” can distort our perceptions of ourselves, others, and reality itself. For the most part, many of us come to overgeneralizations and exaggerations due to one or a few negative experiences, but those perceptions can be barriers for opportunity, freedom, and expanded perspectives. The gospel, in conjunction with the tools of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, invites us to reframe our negative perspectives and gross exaggerations to experience breakthrough, be open to surprise, and redeem us.
