Who’s afraid of a panic attack?
I like to think I am stronger than that
First come the bad thoughts, all mean about me
Next I find myself unable to breathe
Weakness, shaking, dizzy, unwell and often crying
What I really need to ask is what is my heart saying?
Come back to reality. Slow down the thoughts
They are racing very fast. STOP! No more
Trying to breathe in, but need to exhale
Breathe out long and slow, three deep breaths, ok?
Personally when they come for me when I’m split
Conflicted between two opposite ideals that don’t fit
Trying to do things I cannot, usually for others
I tend to need to stop what I’m doing, not bother
It’s not a magic cure. Just a few things that I learned
Could be different for everyone? An example of a guide
Above all be kind to yourself, and very gentle too
The worst passes in minutes (excluding after affects) on cue
Look outside, see the sky, clouds, trees or whatever
Soak in the peaceful energy of surrounds often. Notice all the outer
