In the depression the person sees itself, the events and the future negatively. Anxiety disorders tend to interpret certain concrete as threatening or dangerous situations. Shrek presents a clearly irrational thoughts: I’m not more than an ugly and stupid selfish OGRE I’m better alone. You understand that your appearance according to the ugly and horrible, not make acceptable to the rest of the world and anyone you can to love him. For this reason, lies behind multiple layers that used as shields to protect themselves from the outside. They are immersed in a vicious circle of bad thoughts that are causing a huge emotional suffering. These irrational thoughts are those that cause you to feel abandoned and rejected permanently. His conduct – incorrectly treat others to let him only my swamp is mia, mia and nobody else, and less of a useless, pathetic and talkative donkey – is a consequence also of these thoughts, because really does not feel this towards donkey.
You can overcome this suffering only if he can consciously replace them by others more reasonable. Their mental processes have supremacy on their emotions, and tries to hide them by isolating the world and focusing on himself. Princess Fiona, who has been bewitched and changes its appearance (the day is a Princess and night an ogra) has a few thoughts similar to Shrek in the sense that if they discover their nighttime appearance be undesirable and rejected by all. Thinking that it may be discovered when is an ogra makes you suffer greatly. Based on the list of cognitive errors presented by Beck (adapted by Feixas and Miro, 1993), can identify hasty conclusions, based on his perception that ugly people are rejectable applies to itself without justification and presupposing what others may think. When given the end of the spell in the wedding and realizes that, despite not being a pretty Princess but an ugly ogre, Shrek wants her and fully accepts, begins to perceive events real and not biased, i.e., that the fact of being ugly doesn’t mean that it can not be loved.
