Sorry this is sort of a continuation of the CTFAR ladder question
I would like your advice on how to handle “I want to curl up and die” pain – where in the moment nothing seems to help except medication-alcohol, overeating, drugs-
I have recently realized at least part of my buffering comes from not knowing how to handle this kind of pain
I have also realized that not knowing how to handle this kind of pain has been responsible for me putting a lot of goals on hold- it shakes ones confidence if not dealt with well
is this a C?
C- strong emotional pain trigger
T- I am strong and healthy and I am able to patiently handle any strong emotional pain trigger, no matter what
F- confident and strangely calm, patient
A- allow the strong feeling to be without too much meaning- and be aware that I can work with it at a later time
R- I handle any strong emotional pain trigger
Does this work?
