Surviving Paxil Withdrawal
Your ultimate goal with Paxil withdrawal is to return to or attain a normal, healthy state of wellness.
Wellness exists not as a destination, but rather more of a lifetime pursuit.
You’ll never be done with wellness. You can always be healthier. You can always be ‘more well’. You can always reach for greater well-being.
Wellness also stands as an ideal.
Ideals: goals that by their very nature are never fully attained. Other ideals include love, truth and beauty.
You can always seek greater love, just as you can always seek greater wellness.
The seven action steps listed below offer starting points to wellness. While they’re tailored for Paxil withdrawal in this case, they could just as easily be applied to any health issue.
The Path to Wellness from Paxil Withdrawal
1. Allow yourself to feel the emotions around Paxil withdrawal.
Don’t shut them out. Feel the anger, the injustice, the rage, even the pity and the fear – whatever comes up – keep it active, keep it churning inside of you.
Do not shut down your feelings, no matter what! Keepthem moving up andout of you.
2. Always look for answers.
Why did this happen? Why did I allow it to happen? What is the message here? What am I learning?
Never stop asking yourself these types of questions.
3. Direct your anger at the Paxil withdrawal symptoms.
Don’t get angry at yourself. Don’t blame yourself – that’s the easy way out.
You have been betrayed. You did not betray yourself. You can accept responsibility without hating yourself or putting yourself down. Hate the symptoms instead. Hate what they do to you.
Be conscious of your hate. Use it. Direct it. Focus it. Just remember it’s a loaded gun, so don’t point it at yourself!
4. Forgive yourself.
I’ve put together an entire forgiveness program on this very important topic. It contains complete instructions on what forgiveness is, what it can do for you, and most importantly how to do it!
5. Be a fighter.
Don’t take this lying down. Fight back. Fight hard. Fight dirty. Don’t kid yourself into thinking you can be sweet and nice. You’re practically fighting for your life against the Paxil withdrawal symptoms.
The Paxil withdrawal symptoms that you feel are your enemy. Don’t ever forget that.
6. Heal your lack of ‘deserving’.
The common thread in most people going through the Paxil withdrawal symptoms: deep down inside, they really don’t think they deserve any better.
You may think you deserve to suffer just because you’re depressed, and that’s a lie.
First of all, depression creates undeservability. You start thinking: “If I really deserved, I wouldn’t be depressed in the first place!”
Added to this tendency is the fact that we all get what we think we deserve.
Not what we want to deserve. Not what we tell others we deserve. Not what we think would be ‘nice’ to deserve, but what we really, really, deep down inside – at two o’clock in the morning – honestly think we deserve.
We always get what we think we deserve.
The more ‘deserving’ you feel, the easier it will be to end the Paxil withdrawal symptoms.
7. Constantly restate your determination to be healthy. You do want to be healed from the Paxil withdrawal symptoms, right? State it! State it again!
“I will be healthy!”
Do this at least once a day, maybe even once an hour. Focus on the health, and what it will be like once you get your life back.
In addition to reading about paxil withdrawal help, it’s also important to understand the underlying causes that would lead someone to such a painful place.
I almost feel guilty because my life has become so enjoyable and so easy. Especially since I remember how miserable I used to be.
Basically it comes down to making one slight shift in what you do everyday, and you can watch in amazement as your life slowly begins to start working out in almost every way.
