The best way to deal with a panic attack is to surround yourself with people who are going through the same thing and who understand the pain.
Panic attacks can be debilitating, and when they happen, we often feel like our world is ending. But there are ways to counteract the panic and keep you from going into a full-blown breakdown, a way you can start with a hug.
I have seen this play out time and again. I get it. Panic attacks happen. They can be scary. People who have them have been known to hit the floor and hurl all over the place. It’s not even always the panic that hits us the hardest, but the anxiety and the fear. If you’re feeling that way, put your arms around a friend or a family member and give them a hug.
This can be hard for people who experience panic attacks and fear. It can be hard for them to trust that you know what youre doing, because they can be so self-conscious about going into it alone. But its not so hard to do. It takes practice, but you can do it.
What people don’t get is that anxiety and fear are actually natural, as long as you’re aware of it. They’re part of your normal reaction to the things in your life. For example, if you’re stressed out about something, you might feel anxious or anxious. But the problem is that it’s your normal reaction.
When you do feel anxious or afraid, it actually serves a purpose. It helps you figure out what to do about whatever it is that youre doing. By letting go of your anxiety and fear we can actually think more clearly about what we need to do and how to do it. It’s the same reason we can feel scared and anxious about a huge project or big decision. It’s also why theyre called “comforting” or “consoling.
The way we feel about something is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves. For instance, when we feel anxious we think about what we want to do with our life, we think about if we should work, we think about if we should have children, we think about what we want to do with our finances, we think about our friends, we think about what our spouse thinks about us, we think about what we think about our selves.
This is a real problem that I often struggle with, so I came up with the idea of a “comforting hug” to solve it. This works because the feeling of being hugged is similar to the feeling of your self-awareness. When we feel that we are being comforted, we feel like we are being more conscious of our actions and our feelings.
It’s a nice side-effect to have, but it’s also a problem. We feel like we can’t be ourselves when we’re being comforted, because we can’t tell if we’re being coddled or cuddled. The best way to deal with this is to stop being so self-aware. It’s a good idea to remind ourselves that we can’t really get what we want so we might as well enjoy ourselves, but we can’t feel good about it either.
So, what to do? We can’t stop being self-aware, we cant feel good about being self-aware. So we need to remind ourselves that it’s okay to be who we are, and that things can be okay.
