Catastrophising

Catastrophising is an irrational thought, believing something is far worse than it actually is.

There are two groups.

The first taking a current situation and thinking/believing it is far worse than it actually is - giving it a "negative" spin.

The second group looks to future and anticipates all the things that can go wrong and then creating that reality, by making things go wrong to fulfill our prophecies.

Thanks to my good friend, IU, for coming up with a word that describes both situations perfectly

Clusterf**ktastrophe.
