Sometimes Self Soothe Doesn't work...


This caught my eye on @HealingfromBPD Pinterest board. Can't help think that there are days when using my DBT skills seems harder than others.... or is that because the people/relationship I'm dealing with is being more difficult? Am realising that when I feel like smacking someone - self soothe won't cut it and maybe I need to learn more about 'surfing the urge' or 'opposite action'. Note to self: I can't control the bad behaviour of others, I can do something about my reaction to them...gosh, was that 'wise mind' in action??
