SELF AWARENESS As you journey with yourself, get to know yourself better, be kinder to yourself, more open, more generous, tolerant, compassionate with yourself, so you become that way with others. It is a natural evolutionary process. "As ye sow, so shall ye reap."

Through this process barriers can be broken down, conflict resolved and communication become authentic. Win/Win is possible when Right/Wrong are not part ofrepparttar equation.

THE SHADOW Then we pointrepparttar 126076 finger at others, when we label them Bad or Evil...we have missedrepparttar 126077 point. By focusing outwards on how others seem to be, we don’t look within. We don’t acknowledgerepparttar 126078 shadow parts of us. The parts that can be spiteful, vengeful, angry, dismissive, shut down, rejecting. We like to think that we would never behave like "they" have behaved. But...there is always a potential killer in us. A mother to protect her child is a classic example.

Often we dress our shadow in a mantle of self-righteousness and self justification. Worse, we just believe that we are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT and all views opposed to ours are WRONG and BAD. Then Love is lost and we are in a contracted place.

INNER PEACE = WORLD PEACE These are turbulent and frightening times...but as with all adversity it containsrepparttar 126079 opportunity for us to learn and grow. Take time to look within yourself.

If you’re like Jill, is there any treatment that can help?

Yes, there is. Individuals with this condition are successfully treated with an antidepressant such asrepparttar serotonin-reuptake inhibitors. Usually,repparttar 126075 dose should be started low, for instance 10 mg/day of citalopram. After a few weeks,repparttar 126076 dose should be gradually increased depending uponrepparttar 126077 person’s clinical status.

Cognitive behavior therapy is likewise very effective. This type of “talk psychotherapy” helpsrepparttar 126078 individual to restructure his or her thinking. Negative cognition associated withrepparttar 126079 illness should be addressed in therapy because it creates more harm than good. Relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises should also help.

During treatment, patience is very important because it takes a while before any intervention helps. However, don’t despair. After a few weeks,repparttar 126080 medication should start working and should give you a feeling of comfort.

What’srepparttar 126081 role of benzodiazepines (e.g. lorazepam or clonazepam) inrepparttar 126082 treatment of panic disorder? This type of drug can provide acute relief but should be used only on a short-term basis because of its addiction potential.
