Do you often have feelings of anxiety and anxiety?
Don’t worry about it, that’s the way it should be. Anxiety and restlessness are an integral component of the human psyche – a living, healthy, normal person who is able to respond adequately to changes in the external world and/or in their own body. A psychologically healthy person must necessarily worry, worry, be afraid, worry, worry, and also experience other negative and positive feelings in order to live a full life. But he should experience them in moderation – I emphasize, in moderation, with full or at least partial awareness of certain feelings. Actually, if people adhered to this measure and were able to consciously manage their feelings, then they would not have any problems with any negative feelings. But many people, unfortunately, do not know how to do this. However, it is never too late to learn this, for example, with the help of this article.
So in these feelings themselves – anxiety and anxiety, I do not see any problems, because they do not exist, rather on the contrary, I see them as a great opportunity for you to change your life for the better and become stronger. We will only need to work with you to find out what is bothering you there and why, because if something is bothering you, it means that you definitely need to do something. You also need to understand what information your feelings contain, what you need to do with this information, and how to respond to it. Otherwise, you will constantly worry and worry, and it will cause you some discomfort. However, you need discomfort, we all need discomfort like air, and we also need problems – we need them. It is only important to learn how to correctly and adequately perceive any problems and discomfort, so as not to go crazy because of them. So, friends, in this article we will take a philosophical approach to the problem considered in it and will definitely turn it into an opportunity for you. Read this article to the end, and only then draw your own conclusions about the correctness or incorrectness of my reasoning and the conclusions that I made thanks to my rich experience working with people.
Friends, I will tell you right away, so that you do not lose interest in this material, that I will not tell you any books here. I’m not going to parrot the methods of coping with feelings of anxiety that Dale Carnegie and other famous people who have worked with this problem have written about, for example. Let us, with all due respect, leave them and their work alone, and trust our own observations and reasoning to deal with feelings of anxiety and anxiety once and for all on our own. So rest assured, this article is unique in its kind, I worked on it mainly with my own head. And I believe that this is what we all need to learn – to work with our heads so that we have fewer problems in life. So as for the feeling of anxiety and restlessness, we must come to understand with our own minds what it is and what its purpose is. As soon as you and I understand what we are dealing with and why something is bothering us, we will immediately restore order in our head and in our soul. Well, to be more precise, you will do it, since I have already dealt with this issue.
Let’s first understand what is anxiety and what is anxiety. An alarm is a signal of an upcoming danger, or a state of such danger. Anxiety is our inner, emotional experience about what has already happened or about what is about to happen. In general, if you do not go into details, then both anxiety and anxiety are vague, vague fears about future or past events. Anxiety warns us against negative events in the future, and anxiety draws our attention, both to the future and to the past, to the negative, from our point of view, past. Thus, we can conclude that when something disturbs us and bothers us, it is a signal notifying us of some real or imaginary danger, to which we must respond. The discomfort that we experience when something disturbs us and bothers us is just necessary for us to respond to this or that threat, to this or that change in the external world or in our body. We need to adapt to various changes in order to survive, or if we have enough capacity and will, we need to adapt something and/or someone to suit us. And in order for us to do this, we need discomfort. In other words, anxiety and anxiety are information, useful, vital information, which, according to the idea of nature, God, is designed to help us survive.
And we should never ignore this information. We need to analyze it, study it, and investigate it in order to understand where this information comes from and what it encourages us to do. Without a full understanding of our feelings, we will not be able to take them under our control and will not be able to use them as a tool for learning about the external and our inner world. So keep in mind, friends, that if you do not learn to control your feelings yourself, then they will be controlled for you by other people who, be sure, use your feelings in the right way for them, and not for you. It is quite possible, if something is bothering you at the moment, that these feelings of yours are false, and in fact, you have nothing to worry about, because you are not in any danger. After all, we don’t always have to worry about what we unconsciously worry about, and it doesn’t always make sense to constantly worry, living because of our worries in constant fear. But to know for sure whether we should or shouldn’t worry about something, we must study our anxiety, we must look for an answer to the question of why something bothers us. Is it difficult to do this? Well, what can I tell you – it’s easy for some people to do this, but difficult for others, so they turn to psychologists for help. But I will repeat once again that you can learn everything, including the ability to understand yourself and your feelings.
In a modern, rather dynamic, tense, overloaded with information and far from friendly to humans world, there are plenty of reasons for anxiety and concern. The mere fatigue of an organism that has been subjected to excessive mental, emotional, or physical exertion can cause a person to feel anxious and anxious. Because the overload of the body leads to stress, which tells our brain that everything is not in order in our life, which means there is a reason to worry. Do not forget that our physical body does not like either mental or physical excessive loads, because it wears out because of them. We approach our own death, or rather the death of our physical body, when we overload ourselves with something, and our body does not want to die. That’s why it sends alarm signals to our brains, letting us know that we shouldn’t overexploit ourselves, that we need to rest. And how much does a modern person have to work today, what loads is he subjected to, how much information does he receive every day, which occupies all his attention? That’s just it. And it doesn’t matter that many modern people’s work is mental, not physical, mental work overloads a person even more, it’s not for nothing that one of the famous people said that mental work is the hardest, which is why so few people do it. So as you can see, many of us today lead a lifestyle in which it is simply impossible not to worry about anything and not to worry. Decide for yourself what to do with it, whether to continue to participate in the general madness, in the struggle for a piece of bread, or still try to find a different way of living in this turbulent world. I can only suggest that you change your life, but I will not insist on anything, because your life is your life.
Now let’s turn our attention to the information that bombards our brains every day. A lot really depends on it. I would call the information that we receive today from a variety of sources-the root of all evil. Moreover, each of us reacts differently to the same information: someone is concerned about the economic situation in the country and the world, and someone deeply does not care about it, someone is afraid of war, and for someone war is their mother. Consequently, from the same information, some people benefit, and others harm. What does it mean? This means, friends, that just as you keep track of what your stomach consumes, you should also keep track of what information your brain consumes. Understand the main thing that a restless and anxious state encourages a person to commit a certain action or omission, which may be beneficial or unprofitable for both himself and another person. A simple example is advertising. Doesn’t it make you worry about things that you didn’t worry about before, and doesn’t it make you want to buy some advertised product that you don’t really need? Advertising, at a minimum, stores the information it needs in your subconscious, and at a maximum, it zombies you, by affecting our instincts, which in turn cause certain feelings in you,including feelings of anxiety and anxiety. And feelings encourage a person to take certain actions, to take actions that are necessary for someone. Therefore, you need to know exactly what information affects you and how it affects you.
I am absolutely sure that in most cases, the feeling of anxiety and anxiety arise in people out of the blue, for no apparent reason. And if you are worried for no apparent reason, then someone is causing these feelings in you with the help of certain information that you perceive unconsciously and react to it in the same way unconsciously. Because of this information, you instantly trigger a chain: a stimulus (real or imagined threat) – a reaction (anxiety, anxiety, fear, panic). Simply put, someone may deliberately frighten you in order to manipulate you. In our time, this is not uncommon. Are there any real threats in this world that you should be concerned about? Of course, they are, they have always been and will always be. But it’s not about them, because you will never protect yourself from all threats, so it just doesn’t make sense to respond to all the alarm signals and worry about everything that may threaten you. The point, friends, is your readiness to face any threat, any changes that you should have, for which you need to be a confident person and be able to analyze any information that comes to you in order to control your feelings that it causes. We live in a world in which, even if we want to, we cannot know exactly what will happen tomorrow and whether it will be tomorrow itself. We can only guess, plan, calculate, and hope, but not know. Therefore, all your fears should be treated critically, you need to be able to correctly classify them. Look at the world more broadly and then all those little things that you currently do not consider small things, and therefore they bother you and worry, will cease to be a problem for you. If you understand how to solve a particular problem and whether it needs to be solved at all, it will no longer be a problem for you. Do you agree with me?
Still, it would be irresponsible of me to say that anxiety and anxiety are easy to overcome on their own, and that anyone can do it. Yes, anyone can cope with anxiety and anxiety, but not always on their own. First of all, he can not do this because of emotions, which turn off the constructive thinking necessary for solving any problems. In addition, we are basically not able to solve all our problems, especially of a psychological nature-by ourselves. Not everyone is able to critically evaluate the information that they receive from the outside world, as well as from the internal world, and they are not always able to correctly analyze this information themselves, without outside help, in order to understand it. After all, to do this, he needs to have not only the necessary knowledge and methodology, but also be in a calm state in which he can think. Well, this is natural, if we could do everything for ourselves, then we would no longer have any need for each other, and man would cease to be a social being, with all the consequences that follow from this. Now it is quite obvious that our strength lies in unity and mutual assistance, and if we need help, then, thank God, we can get it from other people. Sometimes we can’t do without this help. So if you are experiencing a state of anxiety and anxiety, excitement and fear – then seek help from a psychologist. He or she can handle this problem for sure.
As for the treatment of emotional disorders accompanied by increased levels of anxiety and anxiety with medication, I personally strongly oppose this method of treatment. The fact is that if you calm yourself down with medication, then you will completely lose control of your emotional state and become addicted to these medications, you will see your salvation only in them. But that’s not the way out. In my opinion, this is an even bigger dead end. Often in medical practice there are cases of relapses, this is when the anxiety returns, while changing its appearance. So, do you know what kind of anxiety can come back to you? It can return in the form of obsessive fears or depression, as well as in the form of panic attacks. And this is much more serious.
Therefore, friends, first of all, do not start your psychological health, and secondly, do not poison your body with any chemicals-treat your emotional disorders and get rid of feelings of anxiety and anxiety, either by analyzing them yourself, find the necessary willpower for this, or with the help of psychologists. And then everything will be fine for you. A life of fear is not a life of torment. Make yourself happy and free from fear!
