DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) is one of the main skills that has helped save my life. They are skills that I will use for the rest of my life! No, seriously I use them without even thinking about it being therapy.
For example: I’ve been dealing with a lot of ups and downs in my emotions. Sadness, loneliness, anxiety, to name a few. I’ve found myself going to use “Opposite Emotions”. Feeling depressed or anxious? Put on a funny show. That kind of thing. It’s not perfect but it gets me through to bedtime when I can take my meds and (hopefully) shut off my mind.
That’s just one example of how DBT is helping me in my current struggles!
