The module I just completed in DBT was interpersonal communication. Some of it was painful, but this idea of escaping the irrational ’emotion’ mind is the key to feeling good about yourself and being able to make friends and enjoy life just a little. Not be so ‘intense.’
I’m not asking for much. I just don’t want my mind to be some sort of Shawshank Redemption.
And right now, it is.
BTW, with DBT, at first I was skeptical. A fad, buzzword, trend, catchall.
Nope. DBT lives up to the Hype. People in my group are in their 2nd, 3rd, 4th year.
just because I’m not gonna let people throw me under the bus doesn’t mean I have to be mean, right? I’m studying humor so I can, in Sheryl Crow’s words, “I’m gonna tell everyone to ‘Lighten Up'” from “Soak up the Sun.”
Ironically, lately, I have been having to ‘work a program’ on a work situation. Acceptance, doing it their way. Removing my ego and proactive nature and allowing them to tell me what THEY want. Working on my ‘attitude of gratitude’ that I have a home to learn and grow in my writing.
Then, this post kinda knocking the program comes out. What am I supposed to do….ignore it? What do you think? Am I obnoxious or what?
