For me after years of trying to go against that disconnected feeling I finally just gave the urge to feel connected up and to my surprise that is when that threat response started to come down and with that my sheer need to feel connected.
How do you mean? Just ignore it?
@Anonymous Kind of, just let it be and let yourself be. Sometimes that really helps.
It is easier said then done ofcourse 😅
Sometimes I stop and do mindful deep breathing or I focus on something in the present using my senses. For example, if I am eating, I focus on the appearance, the smell, and the taste/texture of the food. If I'm doing laundry, I focus on the feel and smell of the clothes. If I'm walking, I focus on the sounds and sights around me and the feeling of the air and sun on my skin.
Got it. These are helpful folks
