Document Summary

For example, someone giving a speech might say that defusion doesn"t work because they still felt anxious before giving a speech but anxiety is a normal emotion in that situation so defusion cannot help with it. Analogy from book: you live in a small country that shares a border with a hostile neighbor. The two countries have had a long standing feud and there are 3 different scenarios for how your country can view its neighbor. Like the struggle to get rid of unwanted feelings it comes with harsh causalities and pain from wasted time and energy. Another is a temporary truce where there will always be tension between the two tribes without a resolution. Ongoing tension with your feelings that is not resolved and one can feel trapped in the process or trying to accept negative feelings. You don"t have to like the other country but you acknowledge it"s there and are okay with its presence.
