    I was rejected by my peers all through elementary and high school. I was constantly made fun of. It still affects me to this day. I have done DBT and it helps with most of the symptoms, but I still get thoughts that people are making fun of me sometimes. I can usually talk myself out of it, but sometimes I have to do some self-soothing until the thoughts go away.

    I love your blog! Thanks for all the great information. I share it with my readers of my own blog often. I also try to put it into practice myself. (Not that I’m always successful!) I am now able to cut myself some slack, where I couldn’t before. All I can do is try my best. That’s all any of us can do.

      Hi Joyce, Thanks so much for your comment and share! Yeah, that kind of difficult experience can definitely program some really tough thoughts and feelings around interpersonal interactions. I’m sorry you have to deal with that. And, it’s really awesome that you recognize how that old feeling can show up for you. That kind of self awareness is the first step in being skillful! Check out this related blog on how our past influences our present in the form of the Passengers we carry with us. http://doctorfielding.com/mindful-mastery-skills/psyco-education/passengers-how-your-past-effects-your-present. I hope you will find it helpful in your journey to self acceptance and skillfulness! All the very best! Lara
