Do you have trouble remembering the "good" and pleasant moments and memories when you are in a crisis or dealing with intense, difficult emotions? I know that this has been a challenge for me on many occasions, and that this is a particularly challenging thing to do for a lot of people who have Borderline Personality Disorder.
After recently coming out of a crisis period and noticing that connecting with positive memories of when I felt well, comforted, soothed, and joyful helped me to push through the days of suffering to emerge on the other side again, I thought: why not log those positive memories on a sheet that I can keep with me when I need help accessing those memories? This inspired me to create a Feel Good Diary sheet and to share it with you. I consider this another self-soothing and grounding tool to put in my toolbox. If you think it will be helpful to you on your journey, please feel free to print it out and keep it somewhere that you can easily access it when you need it.
Always remember: You are not alone, and this, too, shall pass. Thanks for reading. More Soon.
