POWER OVER PANIC/IN SEARCH OF SELF: THE BIRTH OF THE NEW

Posted by admin

It is unknown and unfamiliar. The dawning sense of self is like living with a person we don’t know, living with a person whose values and needs are different. Having to welcome such a stranger into our life on such an intimate level is naturally frightening, even though the stranger is ourself.

This is one of the most confusing aspects of the working-through process. As we learn to face the attacks, the anxiety and the fear we may also have to learn to face the fear of change and the fear of the new emerging self. The carefully constructed defences of a lifetime have been torn down. Rebuilding on more solid foundations means we have to push past the new fears.

When the new fears emerge we will have already broken through many barriers and overcome many of the fears associated with the disorder. We will be able to push past these new fears also, but it must be done gently and intuitively.

The essence of who we are, the essence of our self, is intact. It has always been there and will always be there. Now we have a chance to get to know our self. Now we have the chance to develop and integrate it into our life.

The process is hard, but each step we take means we learn more about the process. In the beginning it is difficult; there is fear, there is anger, there is frustration. ‘Why do I have to go through this, why can’t I just be normal like everyone else?’ What is ‘normal’ anyway? Use the anger, the fear and frustration to push past these new fears. With each step we gain new awareness, new knowledge and increased strength.”The process becomes easier and more tolerable. This is life, this is growth, a continual evolution. Now we can work with it by letting go and flowing with it, not by trying to control it.
