This is a serious question…?! 🙂

I mean…. I’ve been working on getting over the perfectionism for the past year… and it’s incredibly hard.. I mean the shame, the remorse, the guilt i feel when I’m less than perfect, when I do something that’s not …

and the weirdest thing is that I actively work on my kids to NOT get the perfection bug.. I mean I taught them how to ice-skate and used that as a very good example of how to persevere and how you need to practice practice practice to get better, and how it’s important to fail, cause that’s how you lean … and how nothing in this life is perfect, cause we’re all human and we all make mistakes.. and how I encourage them not to beat themselves up when they mess up…

and yet… when it comes to me.. I give myself such a hard time when I mess up… (which of course I do)

so in the last year or so I’ve been working on myself too.. allowing myself to accept myself when I screw up… it’s quite hard …but apparently the world doesn’t end when I mess up 🙂 funny eh

so yeah…. gotta work on this too, keep working on 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.
