Perhaps you live in an entirely different situation and manner than what you experienced during your youth. Yet it is quite common to react with a similar emotional pattern to the one you once used for survival when you were young.

Key Points To Remember:

  • You may still be using that same emotional pattern – the one developed during childhood to “read” present-day adult conversations and situations.
  • It may include ignoring danger when danger is present, gravitating back to old unsafe experiences or ignoring safety when safety is present.
  • The emotional coping strategies that were adaptive for you and that you used to survive during childhood are often the same strategies that imprison you in adulthood.
  • This podcast is about how to reset your internal emotional barometer so you can trust your intuition and more accurately read safety and danger, life events and situations.

Emotional flexibility is the goal. As the environment or context changes, then your coping strategies will ideally change as well.

Tip: Increase your awareness by writing down your own safety and danger signals. Write down how you used to function in the past and how those behaviors may no longer relate to your current situation.
