So, I want some feedback on one of my trauma management techniques.

In this technique, I get myself into deep focus. I imagine two people. One feels the trauma. The other consoles it.

The second provides physical and rational reassurance on the matter, and seldom shows effective emotion. The former may feel and express emotion in response to the trauma.

I like to think of it as a 'means to cry without crying'; it is internalised comfort.

Is this faggot tier? Good? Bad? Is it absolving or feeding negativity? What do you think /adv/?

Well, that's great if you're trying to never actually address the problem.

Are you impaired cognitively? How in the fuck is this supposed to make you better?
You're masturbating in front of a full-length mirror and watching the show.

Seriously, quit with the self-indulgent navel-gazing. Seek help and work towards solving the problem, not marinating in it.

I can't just not feel these things. If I don't do a controlled burn it becomes heavily intrusive. Flashbacks, outbursts of anger and shit. I tried to get therapy but when their solution was 'lol ignore it' and 'pretend it didn't happen', I don't know how to work through these things.

Is this helpful for you? Does it help you cope with whatever your trauma is and function?

Because that's what really matters. Fuck what other people of it.

Sounds okay to me.

It placates it. I don't know if it helps, but it provides control over it to an extent. Makes it easier to get to sleep at night.

It gives me the illusion that someone is listening and caring. But yeah, like Bob said, maybe it is just self indulgent.

Also I've been a bit scared to tell anyone this in case it's some sort of psychosis through dissociation...
