To keep us happy, or to keep us safe. When it has to pick from keeping us happy or safe, it always will pick keeping us safe and out of danger. Many times though for people with chronic fear and worry that turns into full blown health anxiety, and our warning bells of imminent danger go off for no reason at all.
I don’t know about you, but I hate when people us the term ‘mental illness.’ The idea that this fear response has been practiced so many times in situations that don’t justify it going off, and thinking our feelings are actually real facts, doesn’t mean we have an illness.
I Like To Call It A Temporary State Of Wrongful Programming 🙂
As a CBT Practitioner who’s passionate about helping people understand where their fear and worry comes from, many get stuck in a negative pattern. Stuck and thinking that this is all there is. Life is just a permanent state of one cautious situation after another.
If only people with chronic fear and worry understood what there Negative Automatic Thoughts (NATS) we’re, and where the came from, they would be able to catch them. After catching them they could investigate the evidence that supports the belief, and finally they could replace it with a new empowering evidence based belief.
