Relationships should be built by trust, if you are not able to trust your partner and are in a constant insecurity the relationship will not grow. You need to understand from where this insecurity is coming to you, you need to get yourself evaluated so that a proper understanding of your insecurity can be got and adequate advice can be given

Medicines cannot change nature and you have to make up mind and think positively and go out to mingle with people.

Hello Rajesh........... Nothing dies. Death is transformation. You see, its a change. Whole organism exists but not the way as before. The thought of loss generates stress. When I think, I lost something, its painful. Don't create barriers for tears. But don't get lost in pain. Feel their transition. They have moved into the unborn state. Nothing becomes “not” existing. They have been silenced. Sounds are no more. You don't see or hear them. When you have lot of thoughts about them, close your eyes, meditate, breath, relax and be in that silence. Distractions won't work.Distracting ourselves from thoughts, memories or feelings is troublesome. In that pursuit, more of same are pushed into consciousness. Instead of peace, wholeness is agitated. We run in all directions and get nowhere. The best way to overcome the pain is to give it time and create a logical philosophy that can support your mind to cope with the pain and sorrow. Be it losing a close person by the death or by losing a relationship. Just to help you , I am providing you with one philosophy-”what ever has come in existence, has to come to an end. By death or by separation. Nothing in this world is for ever. ” The thumb rule is to keep yourself occupied as much as you can. You must find meaningful engagement. While facing an emotional trauma, TRY never to be lonely. Spend as much time as you can in good company. Read a lot of good books that can create a philosophical and logical background to let your mind soothe the emotional trauma Learn to medicate or get engaged in spiritual or religious activities Do some social work BELIEVE me nothing works better than sharing the pain of others to reduce your own pain. If the trauma is still there even after 3 months , never hesitate to take professional help. Happy living Thank You All the Best

Hie lybrate-user, I have always wondered about this question: What is it that makes me happy? Is it good times spent with friends? Is it performance at work? Is it self awareness? What is it? I created a simple mind map, and started splitting a few things randomly, then I structured them a little, and created a framework. Belief, performance, measurement, results, anticipation, anxiety, happiness Here is how things happen: You always have a rough belief system in your mind. Your beliefs can be weak, or strong. Sometimes very strong. You might believe in yourself, or in things told by others, or you might believe in someone else. Same way, you can have acquired skills, and you can split your skills as ~ what you can do, vs what you are expected to do. I am only giving you a framework. You can always choose to write down whatever you like on a paper just like this. The framework is, that everything in our lives can be split into three ways: What you think, believe, have, can get, etc. What others think, believe, have, can get about you or themselves. What the reality is or where it can go in time if efforts are put towards improvements. Also note, that everything affects everything else. For example, the more skills you have, the stronger your beliefs in something can be. The stronger your beliefs are, the more others might believe in you. The more others believe in you, the more they can help you out. The more they help you, the better your results can look and so on. Each and everything that affects one another can take a positive or a negative trend over time. When we put efforts onto something, you get some results. Again, everything is affected: [Beliefs, attitudes, results, skills, results…] everything! Here is what happiness is: Happiness is simply an inverse of a summation of all the deltas you can put together. Lets think about it with a few examples (they are made up, but I have felt and experienced them): When I did something great, I wasn’t expecting a prize, but my boss gave me one: I got happy! When I did something great, but no one thanked me. I felt tiredness and depression. When I believed in something that was true, but others didn’t it made me anxious. Then I put more efforts to show others what I believed in and why. They saw a clearer picture and got convinced - I got happy. When my boss asked me to do a task, and I could not do it the way he expected - he got angry, and I got depressed. When my boss asked me to train someone. I trained them exceeding expectations - they got happy, my boss got happy, so I got happy! This extends to personal life, not just professional life: I made a sandwich for my friend. He was not even expecting one. He got happy, so I got happy. My friend invited me to his party, but I got late. He got anxious, so I got anxious. I wasn’t anticipating my friends to visit, but they visited me during vacations - they got happy, I got happy. This extends to anticipation on just about anything: We aren’t taught how to manage our emotions in life and we live our lives at the tail end of them. In order to be able to manage your state effectively, you will have to practice this. It’s like being in a building burning down and asking “how do I use the fire extinguisher? – the more experience you have with using the fire extinguisher before the fire, the better off you will be at using it if there is a fire. To get good at this, you will need to practice in your spare time before you’re in the moment. Initially while you are learning this, there will be times where it won’t make any sense, the worst thing you can do is to give up. 1. The ‘Do it Anyway’ approach to dealing with fear Surprisingly this is the most common advice to dealing with social anxiety, it’s also the most controversial in my opinion. For smaller tasks you do that have fear, this advice will work fine. For larger more ‘paralysing’ fear, this approach is pure hell to watch people go through. As adults we become slightly insensitive to the emotions and experiences that have happened to us in childhood. Most people pass them off as ‘no big deal’, but as adults we forget the complexity of emotions and how they can change the way a child sees the world. If you’ve ever seen a child get lost in the supermarket, it’s pure hell for them because children don’t know that they will get through it, and they don’t know how to see the situation from a larger perspective. The more I practise hypnosis, the more sensitive I become to how fragile people’s realities really are. When people think about walking over and talking to somebody and they become paralysed, they are dealing with a lifetime of experience that has proved that people are unpleasant to talk to. As adults we know this is not true, but our belief system says otherwise. I’ll give you an extreme example to show you why this method is ineffective. Post Traumatic Stress is an anxiety disorder that happens from a traumatic experience like a car crash, rape, or returning home from war. Most people who go through a traumatic event will display the same symptoms as somebody with PTSD, but will fade over time. Somebody with PTSD will constantly re-experience the detail throughout their day and will be plagued by anxiety. The soldier will keep playing the graphic details of bullets flying everywhere and seeing his friends dying. By telling somebody to ‘deal with it’ they are effectively telling the soldier to rerun through the battle, and watch it over and over again. This is why this method is painful to watch people go through. It’s like being forced to watch an intense horror movie over and over again in a cinema. I’ve used PTSD as an extreme example because it illustrates the point clearly. Social anxiety may not be as intense as PTSD but because people are replaying a life’s worth of unsuccessful interactions with people over and over again it’s easy to understand why people have so much fear about being social. This is why people using this method to deal with their fear are constantly struggling with motivational issues and create elaborate excuses about not doing the task. 2. Reframe the experience from anxiety to excitement There’s a lot of truth to this method, the only difference between a sensation and an emotion is that an emotion is a sensation with a thought attached to it, either good or bad. We make a decision and judge whether it’s good or bad, and this is influenced off our past experiences. In the movie Big Daddy, Adam Sandler has to baby sit his friend’s kid. There’s a scene where the kid is on a school excursion and he goes to the bathroom and he wets his pants. The kid is hiding in the bathroom worried about what will happen when he walks outside dreading the torment that will come from his peers. To help the boy, Adam’s character walks into the bathroom, splashes water on his pants and walks outside with him. They boy is empowered because he isn’t the only person any more. If we wet ourselves in public, it could be seen as embarrassing, or it could be seen as comedic moment that has brought a smile to a crowd of people. The emotions fear and excitement are indistinguishable, the only difference between anxiety and excitement is the way we look at it. It’s the same as pessimism vs optimism. This is a useful way of looking at the physical energy and the experiences in life and it’s a great way to add positive resources into negative events. When people experience an intense rush of physical energy in their body, they still need a way of burning it off. This will be the next article I’ll be writing about. 3. Mindfulness Mindfulness is a type of meditation that has been around for about 3000 years and extends from key Buddhist principles. Mindfulness has been covered in the media quite a bit, Olympians have used it to stay motivated, Steve Job was an active practitioner of mindfulness, Fortune 500 companies in the US have been developing their ownMindfulness programs because of the productivity increase. Mindful meditation has been described as the ‘sit and observe’ meditation, it involves paying attention to the sensations that are happening around you in a given moment, rather than being on autopilot. When people experience fear, they do an internal search in their body and check what the emotion is and they check each part of their body for the tension and the stiffness and that is what they pay attention to. There is an interesting phenomenon known as The Law of Attention. Whatever we focus our attention on will grow, and we tend to find things that we look for. If you’re riding a bike and you see a rock in front of you, you end up hitting it because that’s what your attention has zoned in on, and you forget about all the space around the rock where you can redirect the bike to. The same thing happens when people have fear, they forget about all the comfort in other areas of their body (like their feet), if you were to focus on that comfort as a guide and realise that the anxiety will end soon. For people who are not used to pushing through fear or anxiety, they get caught up “oh no, I have it again” and they let it paralyse them. When people are doing a task, they do a quick internal check inside their body and basically ask them self “what emotion do I have” and when they notice the fear, they freak out and that causes more fear. With mindfulness, you can notice the fear, and pay attention to a different sensation inside the body, or just observe the fear in your body. Mindfulness is also the most scientifically researched type of meditation. This is of interest to us because it has been shown to decrease the size of the amygdala, the part of the brain that switches on fear. As the amygdala shrinks, the GABA fibers that link to the pre frontal cortex become thicker and give you increased control of awareness and concentration and this is what teaches a you to be more focused on the present moment, rather than caught up in thoughts about the past or worries about the future This is where we start seeing real change, if you do mindfulness for 20 minutes a day, you will see dramatic improvements in your life, you will be happier, you will be able to think clearer and you will be more creative. Mindfulness is extremely useful for dealing with situations where you have fear. 4. Hypnosis Most people are sceptical about hypnosis – that’s not the case, here is the scientific proof that hypnosis works and actually changes the brain. There are two ways to go about achieving results with hypnosis, self hypnosis or seeing a hypnotherapist. Both will get you the same results, the only difference is that self hypnosis will take longer because you have to learn hypnosis, and you have to learn therapy or understand how to work with emotional issues like failure, guilt and anger and fear. Hypnosis is basically mindfulness on steroids and you will achieve results much faster than any other method. Hypnosis combines the attentional manoeuvres of mindfulness and the therapeutic aspects allow you to remove the pain and doubts from your past experiences. This means your perception of events changes from pain to pleasure, as motivation is automatically built into the process. People receive an emotional pay off from being social, studies have shown that people who socialise regularly are happier, studies have also shown that people who buy experiences are happier than people who buy things. The motivational pay off occurs by completing the task. If you go to a party, the reward is the fun times and stories you create, if it’s walking up to a stranger on the street, you might end up having a date with them. Hypnosis will allow you to cheat and create reference experiences where you don’t have any yet. There is a process called Deep Trance Identification, which is a specific mental rehearsal of a task or event that primes your mind for success as it allows you to create certainty in situations that are unexpected or dealing with ‘the worst situation possible’. Using Deep Trance Identification you can build the muscle memory that’s required to perform each task. When people talk about high performance states, they normally describe the process as ‘happening automatically’ or ‘happening without thinking’ – this is basically describing the process of trance, which is exactly what you do with hypnosis. When you enter a trance, your behaviour switches to automatic mode and you complete the task. A common example is when you’re out for dinner with friends, you’re able to create an engaging conversation between the two of you and you’re able to eat and manipulate cutlery without getting food all over yourself, and you don’t need to think about things you’re doing, it all just seems to flow naturally and easily. What to do next Everybody talks about the first step to success happening within the mind, but it’s actually the biggest thing people neglect when it comes to personal development, or do incorrectly. People mistake affirmations and quotes with beautiful scenery as the tools required for powerful changes in their life. Real success happens from creating resilience inside yourself, so that you can handle any situation. Resilience comes from working through the lies you tell yourself about your fears, about the power you perceive to be in other people and in your ability to make decisions for yourself. Thank YOu All The Best.

Kindly ask your doctor if you can reduce and observe for some time. Try to find out if symptoms relapse, if so continue with psychiatrist advise. Also ask for CBT, from psychiatrist or clinical psychologist so medications can be tapered down.

Greetings Mr. lybrate-user I appreciate your effort that you were able to think about yourself could realize that something is not right. So as you mentioned that most of the time you think about your past and future. One question: Is it helping you out in some way or the other? Second question: what is the fear and sadness all about? Think about it and analyze how can you find a solution for your sadness and fear, is the fear or sadness even valid or is it invalid or unnecessary thoughts of yours. Sometimes, we as humans like to fantasize or visualize or rather like to live our sadness or fear for a while and we try to gain something out of it. You need to think objectively and rationally that are you getting something from it, if no then you have to bring a control over your thoughts. Our mind may take us anywhere or may let us think whatever we wish to think or visualize but it is in our hand, the capacity to bring our mind back to the present and think and rethink that "what am I doing in the present, Am I simply wasting time in unnecessary thoughts which will take me nowhere? It is very important that the moment you get irrelevant thoughts you have to tell yourself that you have more urgent things to think and work upon. See this does not mean introspection is bad, rather I told you that its good that you could think about what you are experiencing these days. But thinking too much past and future is simply going to ruin your future and moreover you can't change your past also. It would be better if you can generate your will power all over again to truly fight with your thoughts and focus on present things as only present actions are going to decide your future, so rather than thinking too much about it, it is better you start doing it. And once you start focusing on your present, it will be visible in your actions and your anxiety will surely subside. Regards
