Saman Arif


The human creating danger zone for another human. Sometimes there occur incidents that leave an everlasting marks in the brain of the human being, like seeing the worst road accident or some personal assaults. According to research PTSD effect on boys and girls differently. Girls are more likely than boys to develop PTSD after undergoing traumatic stress. Women are more vulnerable and the stressful happening affect them differently as compared to man. After some unlikely incident, fear develops in the mind of a person and subsequently, she vividly relive the traumatic event in the form of flashbacks and night made. They keep on thinking negative thoughts about their experience and keep on weaving plans or reaction they would give if something likely occurs again and as a result person start avoiding places and things which makes them think about that event. And some people try to attempt their feelings by trying not to feel anything known as emotional numbing. Some distract themselves with work or hobbies and resultantly they start giving up on life.

Deaths are severe. If someone faces the death of some closed one, this might put them in stress and thus they feel numb for sometimes aimless. They forget their goals, their reason for existence. If molested or raped, this is the worst incident I swear. And if such incident occurs in primary ages, a person couldn’t get out of this trauma for their whole next life. After a traumatic experience, it’s normal if you are frightened and disconnected and then you feel stuck with a constant sense of danger and painful memories. Whenever someone tries to touch her, she feels bad even if her own parents. Worst kind of fear develops in a human brain. She doesn’t trust people anymore. She might not have a continuous sleep. Nightmares and flashbacks haunt her. And later on, a person keep mending, what if such situation rewinds, what if someone gives a bad touch and so on. These thoughts ate just because of that one incident that might have occurred in early ages. Often the person who’s suffering PTSD is found alone, less talkative, alert and vulnerable. Well, if you find anyone in stress, suffering so just go, hold them, ask them and help them out. Because this is the time everyone is suffering from depression, anxiety etc. And especially when comes PTSD patients who prefer loneliness because they lost trust in humans and keep thinking on their own.


Sometimes it seems impossible to deal with, but with help and understanding, they could learn to control and calm yourself. Never judge someone with anxiety it’s not something they can help. Plus you never know why they have or experience it. They shouldn’t have to feel embarrassed or ashamed. Just know we are trying, and we don’t expect you to understand, and that’s ok, but please never judge or criticize people who do suffer from it. Kind words and positivity can go a long way. One of the tricky things about parenting a child who feels anxious sometimes is knowing when to push them gently towards brave behavior, and when to let them take comfort somewhere warm and bundled. One of the problems is that the gentlest nudge forward by you might not feel that gentle for them. In fact, sometimes it can just feel flat out cruel – for both of you. But you can see around the corners that they can’t. And you can see their strength, and their resilience, and their courage. You know it’s there, in them, and you know they can do hard things – they’re amazing like that – but sometimes you need to believe it enough for both of you. The move towards brave behavior and away from anxiety is a process, and not always a smooth one. Our kids need us to see them and hold a safe place for them, but they also need us to believe in them and to sometimes lead the way. An anxious brain is a magnificent, powerful brain – and so strong. When anxiety is involved, the need for our kids to avoid or flee can be seismic, but our belief in them can always be stronger. When their anxiety is screaming at that maternal or paternal need in you to keep them safe, ask, will my response build their world or shrink it? Do I believe in them, or do I believe their anxiety? And always, of course, go gently. Building brave, beautiful humans into braver, stronger, more resilient ones takes time – and that’s okay.
