Just words

I haven’t had the chance to sit quietly with an emotion for a while …to just be in the moment…although now as I write I think I may be wrong….just not had the chance to sit with anger …

Ok….looking back to my last massive anger episode….when I posted and shared every thought…. I guess I did let it out…and did actually put it all on “paper”.. If I were analyze it..I’m quite sure I would see plenty of fear beneath the anger fear of losing control fear of being used fear of being put down fear of being punished for expressing my emotions inappropriately fear of messing things up again……

Ok!! So! I mess up! Whoopty do! Everyone messes up, no one is perfect, we all make mistakes, we all stumble and fall when we learn to walk……so give me a break! I’m learning how to deal with my emotions I’m learning how to deal with my triggers, how to handle my relationship how to handle my new life context how to live….so yeah I can’t do EVERYTHING that’s for sure. I can’t PLEASE everyone nor should I want to….gotta work on this one “pleasing everyone” it’s sooooo exhausting so try to make everybody happy…..why should it be my job to make EVERYONE happy????

It’s always been a problem of mine pleasing everyone ….. Makes sense in the context of BPD, that I would try to please people so they won’t abandon me…..but it’s soooo exhausting

My Video, “The Quiet Borderline: The Forgotten Ones” (without music!)

After much consideration, I have removed the music from my video, “The Quiet Borderline:  The Forgotten Ones”  I have received several negative comments on the music.  I will look for cheerier music.  In the meantime, please enjoy my video without music:

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.
