[New Born Story 4] “I learned to love myself through DBT”
DBT Treatment Duration: 18 months
DBT Treatment Results: Improved self-esteem,
reduced difficulties in interpersonal relationships and emotion regulation
Before participating in the DBT program, I frequently found myself emotionally hurt and not expressing myself. This eventually led to big conflicts with others. Moreover, going out and engaging with people was a great challenge for me as I did not know how to love myself.
I slowly began to learn how to respect myself and to treat others with kindness after learning DBT at the Tree Group. I also realized that I could not share my love with others or live a happy life if I did not love myself first.
After a long period of feeling in pain, I am now more aware of who I am and what dreams I hope to pursue later. I finally gained the courage to move forward. But above all else, I’m very appreciative of the fact that I can go out in public on my own, without being self-conscious. I send many thanks to my family and friends who have supported me throughout my struggle, and in turn, I am willing to give strengths to those who need help.
