31 DAYS OF BPD: DAY 14: DO YOU EVER BECOME OBSESSIVE?


It’s hard to define this one…. I mean there are no things that obsess me…. like thoughts that I can’t get rid of… I do tend to get really involved, in whatever I’m doing… like even if I have a job I like or don’t like, I give it 120%.. I become like a “doormat” sort of, obsessing on making a really good impression and being there for people… like if the boss asked me to do something (like stay over time or come in the w/e or whatnot) I will be there.. and I tend to do that sort of to make a good impression and probably similarly to the way I handle romantic relationships… to seem like I’m so perfect .. the difference is that with work / professional relationships I don’t end them… I do anything and everything that needs to be done, till I get to burnout.. (which luckily doesn’t happen for about a couple of years) ..

so maybe that could be considered “obsessive”.. that I try really hard to seem like the most wonderful and perfect employee, no matter the job or task…

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.
