Smile black and white thinking

i am so so tired of this black and white thinking all the time http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/yawn.gif

where is the grey area?

and how do we get there?

surely its not possible to go through life with this all or nothing approach?

love or hate?

right or wrong?

for me its always one or the other never an 'in between'

any ideas anyone?

Hi Blue ,

I'm doing not too bad....

How are you doing now?....a bit better I hope.

I hope the weather isn't too grim in Sussex tonight, there's plenty of rain and gales about.

Hugs

sussex is dry today its amazing

i am not feeling to bad at the moment my partner has stayed with me over the las couple of nights as i have not felt to safe which is really nice of him as i was so horrible to him the whole time then five minutes after insulting him i would appologise and the cycle has gone on for days it really drives me insane know what i mean?

I know I have had problems with polarizing my thoughts. What I did, I started meditating and reading Buddhist philosphy. The meditating is so calming of the soul & physically calm your body & the philosophy of zen buddhism is to think in the momment. That we can't control anything but ourselves...it helps to center your thinking. It really has helped me get to a more grey area!! Alanis Morrissette songs are theraputuc also! (Thank U, So Pure, Still, and Precious Illusions to name a few) I think Alanis is/was a BPD! =)

I too have this problem with the black or white thinking, and it's driving me mad! If you come up with any solutions for it, please share!

i doubt i have found a miricle cure but i am starting to realise that there COULD be a grey area and it not all or nothing

i have been having councelling sessions with my CPN and when i start saying its all or nothing she then introduces the middle for me and even though i cant except that, i do listen. now when i start with my black and white thinking i realise there is a grey area. it is going to take a long time before i start acting in the grey but at least i know now that it exsits

not sure if that makes any sense but i hope you catch what i mean
