    Thanks for sharing such a personal story @@Joyce 🐝 Bowen. I suffer from something similar but different because each of our experiences are different. I finally found a Therapist who uses Mindfulness, Meditation, CBT and EMDR (a combination). EMDR will bring a person back to a time that is tough and many times recall will surprise the person but I find it's starting to work. The heat, I call those stress flashes ;-) Wishing you the best and don't give up, it sounds like you are on to something with your psychology courses.

    Well written @@Joyce 🐝 Bowen. Informative, insightful and gutsy! Thanks for bringing up the name change from PTSDisorder to PTSInjury. Very important. It does make a difference. Continued strength and wishing you all the success. If I may, I would just like to add a thought that you may want to check out. As we experience trauma on a sensory, non-verbal level, that is what is stored or remembered. Especially in childhood trauma when access to language is still not readily available. If I was to look at the exit and space issue for you, I would see it as the sensory related to proprioception, our ability to make sense of where we are in space, in relation to others and objects. If you see this as relevant, you may want to do some sensory work with your therapist in trying to reframe and perhaps even rewire that aspect of your PTSI. Wishing you all the best.

    Reflecting on your story I conclude two things: a) you were imprinting your anxieties on your children--mirror imaging perhaps, and b) I get hypervigilance!
    In combat in Iraq, I along with our Soldiers, relied on hypervigilance to survive. Missing the slightest change in the environment...and extra branch on the road, a dead animal carcass on the side of the road, a gap between reed lines, the abscense of locals when they are always omni present, often signalled (subconsciously) impending contact with an IED--instant death. I coined a colloquial term to describe this hypervigilant state--"listening with your eyes!" Reading your cool story harkens me back to this descriptor--you continue to listen with your eyes!

    I have wrestled recently with such thoughts. I wonder am I who I am because of, or in spite of what has been done to me? I think honest analysis of yourself is a start. However, analysis does not mean beat yourself up either. Understanding who you are and what drives you allows you to manage yourself. And I know I sometimes need to manage myself!!! It is quite brave of you to confront yourself and do so in an open and intelligent way.

Even if they aren't new to it, they are human. I guess nothing is confidential when it comes to the Military, including sessions with Psychologists who aren't acting on your/their behalf. I wonder how many retreat and/or lie even if they are super depressed because they don't want their career ruined, that's a scary thought. How much longer are you out at sea?

    Great post @Miguel 🐝 López de la Oliva. A topic close to my heart. From my perspective, we are sensory beings and as such we form meaning from our experiences. It is our meaning, therefore our reality. The poet Alfred North Whitehead said: "Nature gets credit which in truth should be reserved for ourselves, the rose for its scent, the nightingale for his song, and the sun for its radiance. The poets are entirely mistaken. They should address their lyrics to themselves and should turn them into odes of self-congratulations on the excellence of the human mind. Nature is a dull affair, soundless, scentless, colorless, merely the hurrying of material, endlessly, meaninglessly." This process of how we form our "reality" is what needs to be clearly understood. Fear, for example, doesn't form our reality, it's our response to fear that does that. Everything we sense is information. It is what we choose to do with that information that forms our reality. You're right, we are the creator of our reality. But because we are individuals who depend on community to survive, our challenge is to form that reality which is connected or attached to a common reality. Awareness is the key. If you're "smart" about it, you can "have your cake and eat it too". You can be the individual you want when you find the community in which to express that individuality.

    Thanks for tagging me Donna Luisa! @Miguel 🐝 López de la Oliva, this was an excellent topic. I watched this video before and he just makes so much sense. I think it's great to recognize what may be holding you back or your fears (especially if they are extreme) earlier in life hence, better chance at over-coming them in the short term. I'm at an age where I finally had to seek help for some extreme stuff that my brain programmed and stored wrong. I'm currently working hard with my therapist. My sessions began with CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy) and progressed to EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). I will have my 3 session this week. What is EMDR [ condensed]- "The EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation, right/left eye movement, or tactile stimulation, which repeatedly activates the opposite sides of the brain, releasing emotional experiences that are "trapped" in the nervous system. This assists the neurophysiological system, the basis of the mind/body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself." http://www.psychotherapist.net/emdr-faq.html This is one of the few newer therapies recognized and insurance will pay for. I don't want others to view me as a person with fears and anxiety who is unable to function, my hope is they see me as a person whose had a set back in life that caught up with her and she's taking the right steps to become more functional than she could have imagined. We all have our baggage but the brain is a versatile organ that is able to use other parts of the brain for processing information we once perceived as horrible.

    #12 Are you saying you are one of those people who think we don't have room for refugees in America. I completely disagree with you. Yes, we all die, but that doesn't mean everything needs to be shit until we perish. Messes are meant to be cleaned up. This is a minor example, but if an old lady trips and drops her bags right in front of you, you aren't just going to help her up. Maybe i'm misreading what you are saying, but unfortunately, i believe it is ideologies like yours that is what is wrong with the world, people who likely have the resources and and intelligence to help, but choose to do nothing, but look out for their own interests. Everything is on a wheel. Nothing is guaranteed. A violent type could come kick in your door right now, a hacker could steal everything in your bank account. A hurricane could come wipe out your whole city, you could have a stroke and land in a wheel chair. When you are in need should we dust out hands and say too bad you got screwed.I don't think anyone can save the world, but lots of individuals have certainly made dramatic differences, Bono, Thomas Edison, Harriet Tubman, Abraham Lincoln, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, the list goes on and those are just Americans. I've seen kids starve to death, while they are surrounded by food because they don't have money and people are literally more concerned about that one dollar than given them bread. It's ridiculous. Privilege is a word for a reason. Anyone on this site clearly has a certain amount of privilege, wifi, a computer, an education. Great men don't think like you.

    I give society the exact same 6 seconds of consideration and attention it passes my way. I want nothing to do with it. I don't care about saving the world - because I can't; and I have no delusions of grandeur to think that anything I do matters 100 years from now; fuck - most of it wont last the attention span of a Goldfish.
    so my solution is simply - keep your mess over there, away from me. Bring it my direction - and be prepared to meet armed, trained and tenacious opposition
    I like self reliance, self determination and independence. I like nothing from the white halls of think tanks, government bureaucracies or churches.
    I am not interested in getting along nor going along with flocks, herds, tribes, villages, or the like. I care nothing for the collective; other than to disrupt and destroy it every chance I get.

    #8 I need to understand your expressions better.

    All that I could comprehend was , theory needs to be tested before its fact.

    The tests are continuous until the weakness is discovered and its corrupted, its either exploited by few or many, if its few, there is an attempt to replace it with a system to share the spoils, but the few due to better resources eventually rattle the system to recover some of the small percentages they lose to the rest.
    At a snails pace, the majority are clawing through the insignificantly small because it is necessary, then they pull each other down as an assumed necessity.
    With technology as the interface we just progress from tactics of oppression to manipulation and have an inhuman alibi without a face, but a collective input... Just like society.
    It is convenient to have a faceless intangible construct as the enemy, while its ultimately all about people.

    Society corrupts and waits for an individual to rise up and solve stuff. That's progress. Then society corrupts and exploits again.

    One can suffer with the rest or get ahead. Its a choice. Eventually, whatever you do will be corrupted...that too starts at the level of an individual and is copied around.
    Its easier to copy loopholes of corruption, its like scavenging, no harm there.

    Problem, if you keep on repeating the rant of bad people, bad society, bad crabs, bad men, bad culture...it slowly gets ingrained in the brain,, an eye for contempt and controversy and you may never enjoy success, this is happening to you subconsciously. The skill to corrupt , which could have been applied to the outer world is not being used because you want to be righteous, but the very skill is turning inwards, it is slyly corrupting your world view,
    Corruption is denial of the good as well as the bad.
    This is my opinion, you may disagree, I assume, if you can see a problem with better insights than no one else, you could perhaps develop a solution or a way of life that's progressive , better than everyone else.

    "representation of what happens in social institutions that are built on the desire to control, rather than empower, and therefore represents society in a larger picture." I really feel like we need to start valuing nature and sustainable ways of cooperation & collaboration to get us out of this mess of overlaid hierarchical structures that only ever serve to build that crab bucket dynamic.

    Luckily, I had an outlet to minimize my brainwashing - books. And being an introvert makes it much easier to avoid getting caught up in constant social demands.

You highlight here the simple concept that our children can leave home and build on their narrative or they will spend a lifetime overcoming.

    You also introduce another concept that seems to be taboo in discussion. Our freedom of speech and alternative dialogues are part of the issue. Concepts that are presented in ways that touch us through deep emotional/macabre examples leave a lasting impression that forms our narratives. Are these examples of good causes that seek to bend our guilt, or self esteem towards a cause healthy?

    Parents are complaining about the heightened need to screen TV, internet and various other inroads to our psyche. But its is permeating through social settings of school and other mandated social centers. I agree with freedom of speech but also understand that not all speech is good.

    Good thoughts here.

    Really liked this article, @Lynn. I must confess, though, that I cannot hear or read the words 'don't worry' without that song coming to mind, and I have long thought it a ding dang shame that as talented as Bobby McFerrin Jr is, he's going to be remembered first and foremost for it!

    I certainly agree with you about the power of the mind; we do and become what our brains tell us to.

    #78 You are most welcome @Gerald Hecht, my friend. I would like to once again point out that If we try to help others, sometimes we will be on the wrong track, sometimes we will make an omission and finally, sometimes we will succeed. We should always count on all three options. That's the beauty and the agony of generosity. However, when one day we think about it, we will see that ultimately good always returns good (good prevails).

On a separate incident, yesterday, there were two people whose accounts were removed from beBee for bullying. It simply won't be tolerated here on beBee. Please, if you observe it in the future use the report abuse tab to flag the comment. All of those reports are reviewed and action is taken if it is indeed abusive behavior.

    #64 Most appreciate your contribution, @Irene Hackett. Most of the time adults can be trusted to be adults. Occasionally, even those of us who don't like to impinge on anybody's discussions have to speak up as silence - in the very extreme instances - is taken as agreement.

    I am speaking out because I do not want any valued member to feel hurt and alone. I want to encourage people to trust their gut if they see something crossing the line. No one will be labeled difficult for wanting to intervene when a critique of ideas crosses into a critique of a person.

    I also don't appreciate the few folks minimizing it to a case of 'people come and go' when they apparently did not notice the issues. We are here to grow this site exponentially; high profile leavings based on things happening on the site should engender community discussion.

    It is how things change.

    It’s true that some successful leaders have these listed specific communication patterns. But I don’t think these patterns are related only to people labelled as psychopaths. I also doubt the results of some study that lead to such generalization. Many people used hand gestures while speaking, they sound charming, and are great storytellers.
    Related to the discussion about questionable comments, last time we saw some embarrassing comments (for lack of a better word) they were explained in a way that there was a technical glitch or bug on a beBee site. It seems to me that there is only a “glitch” in someone’s head.

    24/01/2017 #19 Jorge 🐝 Díaz García
    Has dado en la clave, en varias vamos...por una parte el trabajar con una metodología. Muchos vendedores no saben organizarse, no utilizan ni agendas y mucho menos CRMs (muchas empresas no lo tienen,claro) pero con cuatro herramientas online lo puedes tener y gratis. Y sobre todo la última parte..."si la manera de comprar ha cambiado, la de vender también". Y ahí es donde más fuerza hace falta, donde el Director Comercial debe actuar, proponer a la empresa o su equipo comercial el comenzar a trabajar con una buena estrategia basada en SocialSelling...las redes sociales nos aportan mucha información, aparte de la posibilidad de comunicación directa con nuestros potenciales clientes.
