31 DAYS OF BPD: DAY 10: WHAT KIND OF IMPULSIVE DECISIONS HAVE YOU MADE?


Impulsive decisions….. I used to do that quite a bit.. like deciding to up and move to Asia…. or having lots of sex with plenty of pretty much random people…. (that was in my 20s)

Lately I tend to binge eat… can’t stop… I still do the sex part, but not with random, just one person, but I do binge sex if I get the chance…

looking at the definition of

Impulsiveness – The tendency to act or speak based on current feelings rather than logical reasoning.

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time …. Impulsiveness is a normal form of human behavior. All of us make some decisions impulsively, based on “gut-feel”, “instinct”, mood or whim. And life would be very dull we didn’t!

I guess my 3 engagements were quite impulsive… and quite possibly getting married was a yeah, on the spot not thought about it too much …. kind of a decision… that led me to move back to my home country and forget about Law School (where I had enrolled already…)

I will learn how to tone it down & keep it under control…I’m convinced…just gotta give myself time & self compassion…

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.
