Creating a Crisis

Creating a Crisis

Posted by Susan V. Brewer in Balance, Coping Skills, Counseling, Feelings 23 Aug 2012

Do you ever create a crisis and not know why? Sometimes people create drama and crisis because it is all they know how to do and it is how they live their life. Sometimes they are looking for attention from others even if it is in a negative way. They often do not see it as being negative. It feels as though they are venting their thoughts and problems. Yet they never seem to feel better. That is because when you are in a crisis or creating it your focus is usually on complaining about others or feeling sorry for yourself. Sometimes when things are going well for you, you may create a crisis just because things are too calm. This normally occurs when people have been in counseling and have worked through their issues. When you are “In Crisis” it is important to assess is it really a crisis? Are you making it more than what it really is? Sometimes we know. Once you know how to define the crisis than you figure out how you need to handle it and what is the best course of action. Sometimes you may need to walk away from a situation and clear your head. Talking to someone who knows you really well can help you calm down and figure out what you need to do. Writing down your feelings about the situation can help you see things more clearly and make a more informed decision. If you lack insight into yourself and why crisis seems to surround you a lot of the time, it would be helpful for you to contact a professional to discuss these issues. Always remember to not panic or worry incessantly!! All things can be worked out!!!
