Default Good and Bad?

Most of my days include good experiences and bad experiences- today was no exception.

The good- I had a day off of training and school- I purchased plane tickets and made arrangements for a hotel and rental car for a trip in October.

The bad- I ruminated on some problems. I worried about some issues. I felt indecisive at time.

Default Re: Good and Bad?

for me I do it slightly diffrently, it's not good/ bad experiences, I base it on what I am (or not) doing that day

like for me: how was my previous night

have I eaten today

have I drank enough

have I got much on?

how is my chronic pain

all that information helps me know if I'm having a good day or not

I could be having a really bad day and then listen to one of my favorite songs, but it wouldn't make a diffrence- the day's still bad

today is bad: I spent the night reliving abuse, I have horrible chronic pain in my back, I have nothing planned (accept for being on here and checking emails), and all I've eaten of any use is a few grapes.

Default Re: Good and Bad?

Most of my days include both good and bad, but I feel no reason to measure or label. If I am able to do all the normal activities like eating, sleeping enough, taking my dog outside, and other regular activities, AND include coping skills that allow be to keep myself from ruminating or letting my past experiences in the way of my conscious thoughts and rational thinking, then I guess I can say I have had a good day. Some days are better than others in that I am able to explore my creative side and ultimately feel more accomplished and feel that I have fulfilled my emotional and physical needs, but I am not sure a day goes by that I do not need to use my coping skills.

I focus on the bad far too much. Most days really are good and I fail to appreciate that like I should.

The positive: In my training session tonight- we just shot the breeze for a while because I told them a story that got everyone talking.

The not-so-positive: But I was kinda irritated because one of the other trainees has openly criticized me a few times. Ever met someone who will criticize something you do, then immediately tell a story- the point of which is that she is above criticism and doesn't care what anyone else thinks? But this person is not a friend- and not someone I have much respect for- and I noticed that our director has openly criticized this person as well (maybe because she sees what is going on?)

Negative- my wife and I are fighting. There are times when I think I hate her. I Hate My Wife - 4 Common Reasons Husbands Resent Their Wife


Positive- even though we're fighting, we are communicating. I got an A on the first paper I turned in to a difficult professor.

Negative: It is unbearably hot here, and we are supposed to stay in the 90s all next week.

Positive: I finally got some sleep last night and feel recharged this morning.

Thanks for this thread.

The bad: this weekend was really boring and I experienced some discouraging things on Friday.

The good: I'm looking forward to therapy tomorrow, today I saw a career program I'm excited about and am going to inquire more about it, I have a car / I can go places - I'm so grateful for my car! I did my laundry today.

Great thread. Negative: got caught up in myself and forgot to meet a friend of mine. Positive: Went to visit with a few friends this weekend that I have not seen in a while.
