Panic hides a sense of annihilation within him

It all starts with the grip. When we are babies, in the hands of the figure who cares for us, we are safe. When a relationship is established, a link between the two parties, then there is also the fear that the other may be lost. If I invest in you and get my needs met, I’m taken care of, I can count on you because the repetition is there it happens again and again, I feel safe, then I normally get separation anxiety around the sixth month or so. This is a fear that will have to be repeated many times and will be comforted as many times or it will not be comforted and in this way one will be able not to have a great fear of annihilation or to live with a greater fear than one can bear.

There, in the second case, there is great anxiety that reminds that something happened in the relationship, so the fear from the feeling of either abandonment or not having a good connection in the relationship, is excessive and does not allow the person to rest, to find peace. He gets stressed, has meltdowns, explodes, leaves relationships because he doesn’t get what he wants, etc. Depending on what has happened during that time.



Psychotherapy is helpful

In therapy we find these feelings. How; Through transfer. Transference is a psychoanalytic term which means that repressed (repressed – forgotten) feelings are attributed to the therapist. These feelings do not go unnoticed in therapy. We bring them to light, we see them, we accept them and illuminate them. This means that the person comes into contact over time with his true self within the therapeutic relationship. But because this relationship is the repetition of infant, toddler and childhood life, we can make amends little by little. So the treatment “holds”. That’s her job.
