last few days have been trying…. And    I guess I should try refraiming …

  • I have wonderful friends that offered us a place to stay 
  • I have a great friend that is there for me and supports me in so many ways
  • We had amazing sex last night, really got to connect with each other 
  • My kids have adjusted to the new home
  • I got a new mattress from my ex-h in place of the one I left him
  • The sun was shining and the days were warm
  • I cooked with the boys and made cookies, which is an activity they really enjoy 
  • I managed to calm down the younger boy when he had his meltdown and hug him and hold him
  • He then showed me how much he loves me by telling me that everything he touches is mine and his
  • The older one yesterday said that he slept in so I could spend more time with friendlover in bed
  • Both of the boys helped with cleaning the house 
  • My internet is working fine

So today is a new day and I choose to take it as it comes and try not to judge myself if I feel emotions, rather try to ride them and remember that this too shall pass

Update for November 14th

Yesterday, I bought myself a new winter hat.  As I was leaving the Peer Support Centre to go home, I threw my new hat on.  Everyone laughed and told me that I’d forgotten to take the tag off my hat.  They said I looked like Minnie Pearl.  I laughed along with them.  I’ve certainly come […]

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.
