This too shall pass


Hold tight, hold hands with me
All is trouble just as far as you can see
So here we are and here we stand
So we’ll stare it down just to prove that we can And ride it out to the last
It’s true, this too will pass.

Small comfort when it goes so deep And you roll at night in fitful sleep I’ll tell you what I know
As sure as trouble comes

Yah, trouble will go
I’ll say it though you didn’t ask It’s true, this too will pass.

So lay it down, lay it down right here.
All your sorrows, all your troubles and your fears.

I can’t tell you how it goes this far
Or explain why it gets so damn hard
Or there are times that shine like jewels
And will be all the brighter for what you’ve been through So hold these times tightly clasped
It’s true, this too will pass.

So out of the darkest place
And the hardest times that you’ve ever had to face We’re more tender than some would believe
And we still find it hard to ask for what we need But don’t give up too fast
It’s true, this too will pass
It’s true, this too will pass.

—Carrie Newcomer, “This Too Will Pass”

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.
