Self as Observer According to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Self as Observer.  Where on the continuum best describes you?

“The person I call me is my thoughts and feelings about myself” on one end of the continuum.

“The person I call me knows what I am thinking and feeling but is distinct from that process” is at the other end of the continuum.

We move back and forth on this continuum throughout the moment, hour, day, week, month, year, decade, and lifetime.

This is just one example of the joy and challenge of being human.
