The change after that had a huge impact. I was no longer self-conscious when people stared. This was so important – it meant I could continue on my healing path, which could not have happened if I was embarrassed every time somebody stared at my plate. Today, I am almost completely healed, and I feel fulfilled, as much within my family as with my friends or in my studies.
Emotional regulation has certainly changed my life and allowed me to fully become myself by overcoming my problems. I still practice it in my everyday life, when the need arises: when it comes to problems in relationships with others, questions about friendships, love affairs or whatever… It is a method that I believe we can and should use throughout our lives because it can adapt to different experiences, feelings but above all, to different problems.
