Eliminate The Bad Thoughts And Experiences That Have Ever Been Experienced?
I’m Rachel 18 Yrs. So, like this, some time ago r nI experienced an event that did not wear. And I still often think With that incident, every time I try to divert my mind, still my mind is like repeating the incident even my mind thinks to something worse than what I experienced. Because of that incident I also felt scared when walking or going out alone. What can I do to get rid of thoughts about the incident? R nI beg you to give me advice, sometimes I am tortured with my own thoughts.
Good morning Rachel, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Our brain learns in various ways. Some are by reading something, by watching or watching something, and there are also by experiencing it directly. From what our brain learns, it forms the way we decide, the way we judge and see things. For example, when toddlers our fingers have accidentally sliced a knife and since then we have become more careful in using sharp objects. Another example is if in the past out of curiosity, we try to hold fire. We then feel hot and from there we learn that the fire is hot and not to be held.
The same thing might happen to you. The most unpleasant events you have experienced are recorded by your brain and because you don't like them, your brain tries to avoid you from experiencing them again. And if that happens outside the home, your mind tries to avoid you from leaving the house. Of course this is a bad response, because the normal solution should be specific to the problem. As if the incident was an accident, you are more careful driving and if the incident is a robbery, you avoid going out of the house at night and into the dark.
So what we can recommend to you is if the complaint is very disturbing to your daily life and activities, you should consult the problem with a psychologist or psychiatrist. These experts can make you more relaxed and provide you with therapies that allow you to respond to the problem more normally. In a sense, the bad experience is still stored in your mind as a reference in making better decisions in the future, rather than limiting you in your daily life.
In the meantime, share your problem with people you trust, and do therapies such as yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, and relaxation independently at home. So, hopefully answering your question.
