Something Awful is always about to happen.
How awful it will be, is in proportion to two things:
1) How bad I am; and
2) How much pleasure I’m experiencing.
The irrationality of this belief is easy to concede. I have cognitive scripts targeted at this belief. I know some of where it came from, which helped make good cognitive scripts to fight it, but knowing where it came from, in and of itself, isn’t helpful.
