Only focusing on the negative aspects of an experience while ignoring the positives.
A person who filters out the positive may focus only on information that confirms
what they already believe in.
Example: He didn’t like the chicken I made for dinner but loved the vegetables and dessert, so I feel that my cooking skills are terrible because the chicken was bad.
Tip: Make the effort to think about the positive aspects of the experience.
Reframe: I did a great job with the vegetables and dessert.
