Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
Thank you so much for getting back to me and waiting for me. That means a lot.
Working with that excellent workbood did
start to help. It is like an plan to change behavior: we sometimes don't keep up the same level of the program. It is much like someone who is trying to quit drinking and usually stays with the program but sometimes "falls off the wagon".
When this happens, when obessive thoughts and compulsive responses begin to pop up, the best thing to do is to take note of it and go back to your exercises and work it out and work through the thoughts.
How are you managing the breakup? Are you having any more of what you call "glitch" thinking?
Howe does it make you feel?
It is not so much what your think, but how it makes you feel. I know you worry a great deal about having these thoughts or about the possibility that you may have these thoughts.
Let them pass through you or bounce off you. They are thoughts and don't have to change your life.
I know that there is more that you want to say about this, so I will look forward to your response.
