Do you have an anxiety issue that consumes too much of your life? Do you worry you have to feel this way and manage this problem forever? If yes, it can be so frustrating. You know something’s wrong, but you don’t know what it is. You’ve tried many methods to feel better. Some work a bit, others don’t at all. But nothing addresses or resolves the underlying cause of the anxiety.
Here’s the deal: Especially if you’ve had an emotional issue for a year or longer, you may be surprised that you receive one or even several dozen payoffs (aka “perks”) for having this issue in your life. Payoffs that you likely don’t want to give up.
And the thing is, you probably have never acknowledged them. Or even know that you have them. Or certainly, know what they are. All you may be aware of is; you aren’t motivated or can’t seem to shake this issue, and have merely resorted to coping mechanism to deal with it, and nothing more.
Learn how to feel your feelings and emotions, they say. But you don’t even know where to start. You’ve gotten into a bad habit or have been a certain way for so long, becoming a touchy-feely person, well, it seems that’s not going to happen.
Regardless, you know how you are is not working for you, or for your loved ones. You know you’re not fully living, nor feeling truly alive. You’re tired of being emotionally frustrated and incapable to accessing what you feel. You’re only getting older and more stuck in your ways, and can’t imagine what ‘figuring this out’ even looks like.
Do you have trauma-related stress that consumes too much of your life? If yes, likely you’ve tried many approaches to feel better. Some work a bit, others don’t at all. But what’s so frustrating is, they only help you feel better for a moment or day. And if you stop, the stress just comes right back.
Plus, you’re not even clear why you have PTS(D) in the first place, when others who’ve gone through similar trauma don’t.
