Catastrophization! #newoutlook #changeyourmind #psychology #anxiety
May 7, 2015
When you view or present a situation as considerably worse than it actually is, you enter into an immediate state of anxiety. I refer to this state as—CATASTROPHIZATION! The reason anyone turns something small into a dramatic situation is either he/she wants to attract attention to him/herself or he/she does not want to identify with the present moment. Let’s consider the second.
If you are one of these people who identifies with catastrophization, the question you might ask yourself is: What thing, person, or situation in this present moment is too frightening to face?
I remember a time in my life when I felt as if I carried the weight of the world and everyone around me on my shoulders. I actually took responsibility for everything going on in the lives of those closest to me and at work. This kept my mind off of my own problems and the possible solutions to make my life better. But it also caused me to be more reactive to any small situations that arose in my life. I had a lot of “poor-me’s” happening in life. Each time I put my own problems on the backburner, the poor-me’s became exponential.
I resented the moment, because I had no good perspective. When my attention was on other people and the large catastrophes of the world, I couldn’t begin to look at the small things in my own life. In fact, I even thought it selfish to begin to clean up my life, when so many horrible things were going on around me. Wouldn’t it be more important to stay focused on tonight’s evening news, instead of making a list of things I need to accomplish to clear my head?
The truth is: Your head is never clear, because you’re afraid that old thoughts and beliefs will return to your mind and send you into a tailspin, thoughts of failure, thoughts of lack, and thoughts of sickness. So, you don’t look and hope like hell that it all goes away.
These are the times, my dear friend, that you need to accept the counsel of someone who can help you sort through your catastrophised fears and turn them into palatable, workable, functioning problems that have answers. I know this to be true for my life. And I’m certainly seeing that if you take the steps to turn from the drama in your life and be real, today, you will clear you mind and release from your own catastrophization!
