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.

I would appreciate any thoughts on how I can get past this problem and continue with this "bibliotherapy". Thanks
