Negative circle diagram - image description

The diagram shows a circle with three sections to demonstrate how thoughts can affect feelings; feelings then affect behaviour, and behaviour can then affect thoughts. And so the process goes round again. The example here is the thought 'Everyone is going to stare at me and think I am ugly'. This leads to feeling anxious, tearful and self-conscious. These feelings then affect behaviour - the person may not want to socialise and will hide their scars.
