I've recently started a book on cognitive behavioral therapy. The material looks familiar, so I think I've tried this before in the past. Basically the idea is that you can change how you are feeling by changing how you think. My problem is that common sense can tell you what would be better for you to think, but if you deep down don't actually believe that, then how can anything change? I'm finding it very hard to change certain beliefs, so changing my thoughts on them makes me feel like I'm not being truthful with myself. I would appreciate any thoughts on how I can get past this problem and continue with this "bibliotherapy". Thanks
