CBT
I’ve done a lot of CBT therapy stuff on my own and have practiced and taught myself

I felt sad thinking about how I forgot to take care of myself when I have been upset and instead let it fester.
I learned that I need to nourish myself, make a plan of care.

We are made from love and light. Try and replace any negative feeling with that of love and compassion, and see that those years of suffering you were stuck in threat, panic, sadness, and blocked energy. You can change at any moment, you are not your body.

Introduction to CBT 10 minutes
I appreciate having the CBT Therapy method explained to me verbally so that I can understand what I am doing while engaging in during each session. The calming Water Sounds playing in the background are also helpful if a choice is made, after the audio has stopped playing, to continue with Meditation and Relaxation.

On top of the world, not
I should be feeing on top of the world but I am not. Yesterday signed contract on buying a house. But my brain is doing me in on whether I should stick with it or bail. I need to straighten out my brain and I guess reword it to normal. It’s been so far off normal for so long it thinks now is the new normal. Listening to this gives me hope I can retrain my thinking and thought processes to improve my life. Will continue to listen and try to learn. Thank you 😊 your patience is required. 🖤💜

I’ve came a long way since 2017, but life changing events seem to pull you back to a point where you have to relearn that you are good enough

Self compassion
When in the grip of the lows and a hyper activated fight or flight mode it can be hard to even concentrate and find the roots of distress yet with practice, gentle exploration and the help of breathwork and meditation I think That little steps out of the crazy dark have been happening. I put the work in, I’m more able to send the love out to myself and the world.

I learned about the three systems of threat. Sometime
Sometimes in the melee of life, I forget that those things of threat of self image with others is a saber tooth tiger. How we self soothe isn’t the best way and finding compassion for oneself is more lasting and beneficial.

Compassion
I learned that I need to be more compassionate to myself and release the shame and guilt . Hurt and resentment I’ve been carrying . It okay to sit in my emotions and identify them and comfort myself with kindness.

Threat Drive Soothe
Drive is buying stuff, eating too much. Soothe is comfort self as you would a child.

Compassionate CBT
Threat/drive/soothe systems perfectly explained. This podcast started my day in the best possible way.

Compassionate cbt
I learned that I spend much of my time in drive zone - trying to find ways to help me feel better. I will have to pursue alternate ways to care for self - I will be open to learning more about self-compassion

Compassion
The interaction between drive and threat interested me. I always try to actually solve problems -drive. I need to be more compassionate with myself.

Compassion cognitive behavior
I learned that response is key! One must use compassion to understand that he/she is not the only to experience pain. Our mentality towards initial pain can and is affected by how we respond to the second or third time we experience that same type of pain. I learned that if I acknowledge how and why I feel a certain way about that situation and think positively about it, the pain won’t affect me the same. Response is key!

Compassionate CBT
The story of the monks and the arrows totally resonated with me. I will not stick myself w more arrows. This is a lovely session that I will revisit. Thank you.

The second arrow
I learned that we react to how the first arrow made us feel. The second, third or even fourth arrow is our reaction therefore there is space for growth understanding and healing. Self compassion is essential to treat ourselves with love and understanding.

What I have learned
I  Learned a new way to cope with my anxiety/when I feel upset. Instead of binge eating and spending lots of money to soothe myself , I should think of myself as a child and hug my inner child and focus on nourishing myself and taking it slow

Kerry
What I’ve learnt
I learnt that this makes a lot of sense, looking at evolution and today’s society. I have definitely started doing things to cope which I know are not good, the most obvious being drinking more wine.

Treating my self
Compassion - a lot packed in the talk definitely to listen to again. It makes sense feels logical and doable. The second arrow I had not heard of before. It is a great visual and teaching. CBT is not threatening to me. Is it an invitation to grow

Second listening
The “First arrow” is life coming at us: first hand, unseen, blind sided, the tragedies, the “couldn’t be helped” - those first times with a totally new experience. I might not see something coming but I can reflect on what occurred. I might avoid, barricade, turn and confront… if I expect a next arrow, onslaught, challenge, test. Choosing how to respond a second time around in the face of a test, trial, pain, knee jerk reaction I think takes slowing down contemplating to practice.

Here we go again
I get in these horrible cycles of insomnia, then sleep anxiety. Haven’t had one this bad since 2014. It has ruined my summer, a summer that was supposed to be the most memorable one of my life with great trips planned. But the travel to Europe brought this on. My sleep schedule got way off and I’m just trying to put it back in place now. I learned that thinking about it all day just makes the whole experience 10 times worse.
