    I really think DBT is awesome. I've recently been introduced to the concept of Radical Acceptance. It's pretty powerful. Yes, I feel terrified. It's not good, but it's what happens when you're a kid and you're abused. I'm not being abused now, but being terrified is natural. It won't kill me to feel that way. I will live, even if it's not always pleasant. I also talked to my best friend, who's single mom killed herself when he was in second grade. As a result, he grew up with no family, in foster care and was sexually abused. I realized that I cannot do that to my son. Also, I came to understand that I survived a pretty horrid thing that a lot of people wouldn't have survived. Why survive that, just to get to 40 to take my life. Doesn't make sense. So, for now, I let go of committing suicide. I love my new therapist.
