catastrophizing- seeing things in their worst possible light; misattributing blame - blaming the wrong person (or even objects) for things that happen; overgeneralizing- seeing patterns where there are none; demandingness- putting one's own needs ahead of others; and inflammatory labeling - the practice of mentally or verbally belittling someone with a derogatory term.

Thank you for the interesting post and have a great week. Try not to get angry!
