Good article. Well worth the read. ( Avoidance behavior really stands out in many circumstances )
  • Several other means are available to help change, focus and aid in setting and achieving goals.
  • Meditation, yoga ( chakra balance )etc.
  • Balancing the many things and relationships ( social life, spiritual life, love life, work etc. ) all need balancing in life.
  • Clearing out clutter can be a mind opener.
  • Deciding to stick with the pattern of any ( positive ) change will eventually become second nature and a habit.

It's as easy sometimes as getting up at 5 or 6am to get ( that pay check) to a seven o'clock job on time.
Forced change, commitment sometimes helps. If you don't form that pattern.. you wont be working at that job very long.

========================================

Break the pattern of negative behaviors​

When you experience a traumatic event, your fight-or-flight response is triggered. This creates new neurological pathways that apply meaning to this event: fear, sadness, anxiety, grief or anger. Your emotions are amplified in this primal state as your system is flooded with adrenaline and cortisol, increasing the likelihood of it being committed to your long-term memory, both consciously and subconsciously. This reaction is meant to keep you safe and on high alert to future life/death situations despite the real/perceived danger having passed.

Obliterating fear and finding your purpose​

It’s like playing the same old album on repeat. It becomes comfortable. It reinforces who we believe ourselves to be, despite being in conflict with who we need to become to reach our goals. Hence, an internal battle for one’s self continues until we select a new soundtrack for our life.

Repeatedly experiencing fight-or-flight can manifest all types of unusual behavior that can sabotage your success, including:

  • Avoidance behavior. Putting off what you need to get done by spending countless hours scrolling through social media or watching TV. This can also include overworking so you don’t have to deal with a situation in your personal life.
  • Changes in mood. Becoming angry or moody without knowing why and lashing out at others in an uncharacteristic way.
  • Increased anxiety. This includes everything from racing heartbeat, fidgeting and pacing to withdrawing from others and an inability to focus, all to keep yourself distracted from what’s truly at play.
  • Identity shift. Switching into Guardian and Defender mode and beginning to think you’re the kind of person who just doesn’t reach their goals or get what they want.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
