Should statements

Those who rely on ‘should statements’ tend to have rigid rules, set by themselves or others, that always need to be followed — at least in their minds.

They don’t see flexibility in different circumstances, and they put themselves under considerable stress trying to live up to these self-imposed expectations. 

If your internal dialogue involves a large number of ‘shoulds,’ you may be under the influence of this cognitive distortion.
