i also got to use my dbt skills which was really great. i used participation - throwing yourself into an activity and being fully present while doing it, not worry about what is going to come after or what you have to do later - and non-judgmentally - not judging what you are doing or the efforts you are putting forth but just doing your best and accepting your efforts for what they are. i am really growing to appreciate these skills and what they are teaching me about staying in the present moment and not treating myself with harshness.
