What is Catastrophizing?
Catastrophizing is the practice of thinking the worst, which is as old as the human species. Throughout time, both in reality and fiction, prophets have predicted major catastrophic events that they believed would occur in the future. Cassandra is a fictitious prophet known in Greek mythology while Nostradamus, who made his first predictions in 1555, is considered the most renowned prophet in history.
In reality, people don’t really have the gift of prophecy. They aren’t able to know the future before it happens. It is only in your imagination that you cause the outcome to turn out badly. You begin to listen to your negative thoughts without objectivity. When you always think that everything will work out for the worst, you can encourage the worst-case scenario to come about.
Why Catastrophizing or Thinking the Worst Isn’t All Bad or All Good
The ability to “prophesize” negative outcomes isn’t all bad. It gives you the ideas you need to come up with backup plans. If the worst-case scenario happens, you’ve already thought it through. But like any powerful tool, this ability comes with some risks. It is great when you use it correctly but it can be a problem when you go too far.
The problem with using your skill to project future outcomes is that your imagination can get carried away. Instead of looking at both the best and worst outcomes, it may turn even the simplest events into a major production! A laser-focus on what can go wrong can ignite fear and anxiety that translate into a negative outlook on your life. Not only do you expect everything to turn out wrong; you no longer see any point in trying to change the outcome.
