One of the lessons from dbt is that you need to stop time and do something random and kind for yourself. Every day.

its not self indulgent, but it’s an important ritual to healing your bpd.

it can be something as simple as taking 15 minutes to fully appreciate a cup of tea, and nothing else.

so let’s work on doing at least one kind thing for ourselves each day.

what did you do today?

I took a long walk with my dog and looked at the houses in my neighborhood... and imagined the lives lived beyond those window panes.

I went out for sushi by myself and just appreciated having the day off work.

Spent 7 hours at work, as my broken toe hurts like hell I only left the office once. Then I did most the other part of my job by phone
My toe is quite painful

I started working on what's called a Wellness Plan and at am including one thing every day that's just for me.

My fave ... a nice long bubble bath with candles and calming music.

After the women's group, I came home and lay down in bed. Read book for a while, then just rested.
I was feeling terrible, now I feel better. WRAP might be a way to persuade myself to do a kind thing for myself every day. -- think I will try that
