31 DAYS OF BPD: DAY 16: DOES YOUR STYLE (CLOTHING, HAIR, ETC.) CHANGE A LOT?


Good god yes…. I like to cut my own hair… have been doing it since I was a teen… now that I’m writing this I realise that it’s been a great coping mechanism for me, cutting my own hair.. as a way to deal with difficult emotions and stuff… I still do it.. actually last hair change I did myself, both cut and colour.. but usually when I have a tough situation, the first thing I do is something with the hair… cut it as short as possible…

I also like to change the colour…. I experiment with all shades, although not “crazy” ones.. I tend to stick with dark browns, black, red shades and lately blond..

clothes… I tend to be very casual and relaxed.. although I will occasionally switch .. and wear dresses and stuff, paint my nails.. do something different… and I don’t really care what others think of me 😛

so yeah… inventing myself… it’s something I have some control over.. and as I’m doing this challenge and my journey through BPD I realise that it’s been a method of coping with strong emotions, for sure….

    My wardrobe is full of different looks, and they would be even more varied if I was small enough to be able to shop in any store. I definitely dress each day to fit how I’m feeling, and one day it might be a butch lesbian and the next day I’m a hippy princess lol

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.
