• I must do well.
  • I must never feel uncomfortable. I must always be comfortable.
  • I must never feel anxious.
  • I must never feel pain.
  • I must never feel indecision.
  • I must never feel fatigue.
  • I must never face a bad experience.
  • I must never have to validate myself.
  • I must never be alone.
  • I must never face disadvantages from my decisions (even though most decisions have advantages and disadvantages).

The idea of having “musts” was first coined by the psychologist Albert Ellis. He believed that most anxiety and depression came from people making demands on the world around them.

I must never face a bad experience!
