Judi's Musings on DBT and other topics

Thought of the Week

It is time for me to catch up on my Thought of the Week. I give one of these to my clients each week and ask them to spend some time during the week thinking about the quote and considering how it might be meaningful in their life. I include the author's name when I know it. Unfortunately, some of these thoughts were given to me without an author being identified.
On here you will be seeing several Thoughts of the Week at once, but feel free to consider them one week at a time as they are intended.   

Week of 1/10 - A New Year of  DBT- See this on my website

Week of 1/17 -I may not be there yet but I am closer than I was yesterday.

Week of 1/24 People who have been hurt often end up greeting the world wearing a heavy protective armor. Other people might misinterpret this protective armor as anger and respond by putting up their own armor and feeling angry, scared, intimidated or acting distant. When you let down your heavy protective shield and replace it with an invisible shield and a half smile. people feel safer and don't think they have to be on guard around you. They tend to act nicer,  warmer, softer and be friendlier.  Imagine you are a dog approaching another dog --- and wag your tail to let the other dog know that you are friendly!

Week of 1/31 - I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. Oliver Wendell Homes
