What do we bottle it up for ? Self preservation? The need to steer away from conversation? Happiness in solitude ? But without acknowledging what makes us unhappy we risk a continuous decline in our own well-being eventually leading to anxieties and mental health issues .... which in today’s judgemental society .... we fear the continuous criticism, the constant outlay of how we should approach our mental health , without their own experiences to reflect upon.
A cold shallow look into the depths of our own lives, scared to acknowledge what is laid in front of us.
Sometimes we need an extended hand, to establish what is on our minds, we don’t know what we need or want, sometimes a little reassurance is just what we need to pursue our inner demons.
Invite them to cure them.
Human nature gives us the fight to flight effect , whether it’s emotional or physical we have the ability to use our physiological state in these situations to respond to circumstances that put us on the brink of survival . This gives us the kick we need in the direction of success , in overcoming the catastrophic event.
“The fight-or-flight response is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival. It was first described by Walter Bradford Cannon. Wikipedia”
Just as stated by Walter , we have the ability to address our perceived situation, by fight or flight.
By fight we call our demons, we challenge them and conquer, by flight we submit and become subdued, even consumed by it.
In situations such as these, our bodies evoke the release of adrenaline into the bloodstream.
Adrenalin gives us the opportunity to push through pain , anger and fear. As well as the physical contribution of an increased heart rate, tensed muscles , dialated pupils ,increased alertness , Adrenalin affects our psychological ability to establish the fight or flight response.
With bursts of adrenaline pumping through our veins , our peripheral vision is limited , allowing us to concentrate on what lays in front of us .
