Exercise Tracking Feelings During Dialogue

Use the form in the next exercise to fill in the feelings that arose during your repetitive dialogue. Take a moment to reflect on what you were feeling during the dialogue. If you’re working with your partner, you might want to fill it in together. If you’re working alone, spend some time feeling into your partner’s side of the interaction. See if you can approach the exercise from a compassionate Self point of view. How well do you know your own feelings? What do you understand about your partner’s feelings, triggers, and parts? What underlies both of your reactions?
