Study Guide

Synopsis from Goodreads:
 Most of What Happens in Your Life Happens Because of the Way You Think. Wrong thinking produces wrong emotions, wrong reactions, wrong behavior, and unhappiness! Learning to deal with your thoughts is the first step on the road to healthy thinking. How to handle one's thoughts properly is what this book is all about! It explains the life-changing method the authors call Misbelief Therapy, and it can work for you-- In your home In your own circumstances In your own problems In your own adverse environment In your own thinking Based on the Bible, this book has helped thousands of people for many years, and it can help you! Telling Yourself the Truth can show you how to identify your own misbeliefs and replace them with the truth

I wanted to try this book to see if it would help me in anyway. It is not a very long book, but it took me a few days because it's emotional and about trying to help yourself. This book teaches us about Misbelief therapy, which are basically the lies we tell ourselves. Example: I am Dumb, I am worth nothing, I will not be successful. It also teaches us how to find the truth and get rid of those misbeliefs, I wish it was as simple as it says. I am hoping I am able to use this in my life though, and maybe I can finally not be as depressed, anxiety, etc. It takes time though! This book may not help everyone, because there are some folks who do need their medicine. But I don't see the harm in anyone reading this book. You never know you might read something you just didn't know about, and that may help you start on your road to healing. This book is christian belief based, which I thought made it even more awesome. I always like when they put scriptures in self help books like these. I believe  it gives me more hope and understanding sometimes. So find a copy and try it out for yourself! :) Ta Ta For Now!
