“If We Can Learn How To Respond To Panic Rather Than React, Everything Changes.”
To live in constant panic means to have a worldview that says ‘this world is unsafe.’ For people like this the minds filter system deletes information that relates to safety, and modifies information to fit with fear. As those neural connections in the brain grow stronger and stronger the world becomes scarier and scarier, and so the panic cycle continues.
Conditioning And Repetition Are The True Sources That Led To A Life Of Panic.
The panic cycle means that the emotional brain (limbic system) has been highly attuned to associating normal things to threats. The fight or flight response gets released as all the other parts of the brain shut down to focus on the immediate threat. As the cycle continues the adrenal glands secrete more adrenaline and cortisol, as the system becomes overwhelmed with a release of energy.
The continuation of this state without a proper CBT based recovery program leads to many other symptoms such as depersonalization, dizziness, and bewilderment. We need to take the time to understand that to live in constant panic all started with 1, or a handful of events. Things that occurred, reactions that were made, and pairings in the mind that were created.
The conscious mind didn’t show up in that moment you had an emotional trauma. So you now may live in constant panic simply based on wrong interpretations.
