— “Experiencing uncomfortable emotions, distressing thoughts, painful sensations, or disturbing events is challenging. This can lead to fighting reality through denial, diversion, and other forms of avoidance that are often slippery and not fully in one's awareness. Perhaps it's that you left that self-help book to collect dust on your bookshelf, or that you are avoiding finding a good therapist. It can be subtle and completely internal, like that sense of confusion during tough moments, almost a "does not compute" feeling . ACT sees avoidance as a key component within most psychological suffering. Acceptance is ACT's alternative to avoidance.” – Dr. Josie
