Red Fuji & Zinnia Flowers (Japan) by Yuga Kurita
does anyone else do DBT?
i think it’s the best therapy i’ve ever done, but i also feel really fed up & stuck with it at the moment.
a few months or so ago & i was quite literally in love with it, & now i’ve come to a place where i’m just noticing more & more of the judgements i have about myself but feeling very trapped & frustrated.
there is so much more to me as a person than whether or not i can engage with DBT in the precise way that marsha linehan intended, but i’m not seeing it. i’m feeling quite distant from myself, &/or who i once was.
this is turning into a self-pitying ramble instead of the exchange of DBT experiences i was hoping to initiate.
(yes i know - judgements judgements judgements).
in summary, would love to hear other people’s experiences of DBT, & if you have any stories about overcoming feeling very frustrated & a little disillusioned, even better!
how have i never noticed how wonderfully sad & beautiful & amazing this song is…?
can’t stop listening to it today.
(& good for learning to ‘sit with sadness’ too i shouldn’t wonder….).
