easy one…as anger is “my favorite” emotion .. The other day i was painting  the walls with my children..and one of them put his foot in the paint bucket.. I told him to be careful and not do it again, as he might fall… But he did it anyway, with the other foot. 

Then he fell, then the other one slipped and fell..the of course so did I. 

I got really mad, started screaming at him… Poor guy said that he’s not going to paint again..

*shame of course and guilt…

    So, I’ve been reading your 31 Days posts, and I’ve never seen this before!! I applaude you for being open and honest. I think my hardest part of the BPD is not being honest, and always trying to find a “OK” reason to justify my actions. Sadly, most of my emotions don’t seem to be justified by the situation in which they pop out to say hello 😦

    Side note: Did you script this on your own? I honestly would love to do it on my own blog, but I want to make sure I have your permission if your the one who came up with this.

Respecting Emotion & Regulating Emotion: An Introduction to Checking the Facts

Emotions are like a sixth sense because like sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell, they give us important information about our environment that we need to survive. What makes emotions so special is that they help us to act quickly when logical thought is too slow for us to engage in problem-solving. (See Situations below.) However, for people who may be unusually emotionally reactive, sensitive, or have learned to judge or invalidate their emotional sixth sense from culture, values, gender roles, parents, family, loved ones, etc., emotions may not always cause the expected effective response. Therefore, dialectical behavior therapy came up with the skill checking the facts to help us figure out if our emotional responses fit the facts and intensity of a situation and whether an unwanted or distressing emotion needs skills toward accepting and changing or skills toward accepting and tolerating.
