I suck at therapy

Therapist- “So how have you been doing?”

Me- “good”

Translation- EVERYTHING SUCKS BUT I MUST HIDE IT!

Therapist- “how’s work going?”

Me- “it’s fine. Better I think. I mean it’s stressful, but that’s just because there’s a lot going on. That’s not my anxiety or anything, it’s just a busy time. It’s fine.”

Translation- Yeah, my anxiety is going nuts.

Therapist- “have you been making time for self care?”

Me- “yeah, it’s just not working.”

Translation- I half assed some meditation and gave up.

Clearly I’m not doing this right, luckily she knows me well enough to move these coversations to the truth. But I’ve decided to start bringing my DBT or CBT worksheets back to therapy in hopes of externalizing my shit better. So which would you recommend I start with? Have you done worksheets from DBT or CBT?

 

We’re from different timelines!

So I opened a new glue stick today and IT WAS WHITE! My glue sticks have ALWAYS been purple! My mind was blown. So I texted a picture to my husband saying that the Mandela Effect / Alternate Earth theory must be true, because glue sticks are suddenly white. Know what he said? His glue sticks are always white! So he says that he must be from this timeline while I am from the alternate one…. trippy.

So I googled a bit, and apparently I’ve always used Elmers washable, or Avery disappearing color, which are purple. And most other glue sticks (including Avery permanent which is what I opened today) are white. But ya know what? That’s not near as interesting as my alternate Earth explanation. So I’ll stick with my husband and I being from alternate worlds/timelines.

Your turn! What timeline are you from?


By the way. My son voted white. He says his glue sticks at school are not purple.
