Feeling confident 


I know that I’ve only been doing this for a few days, but today I’m feeling confident I can stick to it.. 

I can do the BPD challenge, I can work on myself… I can practice..

What am I practicing…

  • Mindfulness …taking each moment as it comes, trying not to judge it, trying to simply observe it..ride it. 
  • Emotion regulation…tough one. Gotta work hard at my “lovely” emotions..the anger, the fear…..but I really think I can do it, just have to really be patient with myself and not give me such a hard time when I screw up
  • Loving & accepting myself…working on doing something nice for myself every day, even if it’s simply a nice thought
  • Interpersonal relationships…so far I’m mostly practicing assertiveness with myself..gott start doing it witj others, and remember not to beat myself up when I don’t get it right
  • Distress tolerance..hmmm..tough  one for now… But I will get the hang of it

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.
