Flight, fright or freeze mode is a trauma based response that protects us from accidents, assaults, trauma and stress. Trauma and stressful life events can trigger us into flight, fright, or freeze mode and it should protect us, but sometimes it is a segue to isolation and fear.

Sometimes it’s hard to imagine what is real threat and what is a perceived threat when we are in the depths of depression.

Here are some fears and disorders that can trigger flight, fright, or freeze mode:

  • fear of abandonment
  • narcissistic personality disorder
  • selfishness
  • self pity
  • terror, unnecessarily real or perceived
  • I am tired
  • chasing love that I could not find in myself
  • not getting my basic needs met
  • wanting relationships that are not mutual

Here are some ways to feel good and reboot your mind, body and soul:

  • meditate
  • prayer
