    • I agree… easier said than done. I had many YEARS where I didn’t believe in this… thought it was a bunch of BS. My last therapist knew that I was skeptical, no therapist had ever “reached me before”, I thought it was all a waste. She told me to give it a year… and to truly practice these steps. At first it felt pointless. But now that it has been over a year… I can see where it has worked in my life. Definitely isn’t instant gratification, it took time… lots of work… and MANY tears. I feel lucky that it has helped me so much. I hope that others will read this and at least give it a try and have the hope that it will work. ♥
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts Guapo… always appreciated. :-D


      • It’s like smiling. Even if you don’t feel like it, sometimes just forcing your mouth into the shape and holding it a minute makes you feel a little happier…
        (not sure where I heard that, but I was shocked to find it was true.)


  1. I also had a wonderful counsellor who worked with me for a long time using this method – and have been practicing it in my life the last couple of years … and yes, it does work! I am so proud of you, dear Muse! Sending you much love and hugs! ~ Love, Julie xoxox


    • It is such an amazing practice… seems so simple… yet it does take practice. I am glad that it worked for you as well. It is as if we “rewire” our brains to think differently. ♥


  2. this is a great post and wonderful work to. I too, work with mindfulness and have done several courses of DBT. Great course,, not easy to live, but the best model! Love, Linda


    • I agree… it is the best model…and not so easy to do. I must practice it daily…even if just for a moment. The more I make myself “aware”, the more aware I become without noticing. xo


  3. Powerful quote, and so much truth it is scary. Sometimes, it is hard to face the truth in this. Having so much ability and power in our own hands is all we ever cry for, but realizing we have it is a daunting thought, and one that makes us think what we thought we were wishing for all along…..lol
    But I for one am glad, because as long as the motive is love, we cannot steer too far off course…..I really enjoyed this post, thank you….


  4. I love DBT and find it soo so helpful, too! It’s a bit difficult to grasp at first but once you get the hang of it, it’s incredibly effective. Thank you for sharing the self-help link!


I love to hear from my fellow "Muses"... please share your thoughts!
