Cognitive reframing is a powerful way to reinterpret events in a more positive way.
It comes from the idea that life events are inherently meaningless and only develop meaning when we assign meaning to them. Our thinking is so heavily influenced by past experience, values, beliefs, biases that it’s often possible to substantially change our view of an event by simply adjusting our perspective (story) about it: re-framing it in other words.
