The Independent (June 2009) on 'Revenge'
For the most shining example of the latter, consider Nelson Mandela. As a politician he was no great shakes, but it didn't matter, for he had already committed perhaps the single most important act in his nation's history, rescuing his country from bloodshed and inspiring the world: he forgave his enemies.
But for those of us who lack the Mandela spirit, how are we to satisfy our bloodlust and burning need for justice without ending up looking just as bad as the person who wronged us? It's a tough one, but there is a practical alternative. I got it from a rather brilliant lifestyle coach I know called Steve Wichett, who has found it especially useful when treating obsessive compulsives and sociopaths. (sic)
First, he stresses, it's absolutely essential to get the bitterness out of your system: "Resenting someone is like drinking poison yourself and hoping they die." But actually punishing them often makes you feel worse. So, the way you deal with it is this: in your imagination you construct a form of vengeance every bit as dire and elaborate as that enacted by Titus Andronicus or my friend X, adding all the necessary swear words, sound effects, gougings and weaponry. Then, once you have relished your revenge in all its full hideousness, you let the feeling go and forget all about it.
The 9 Essential Ingredients for Anxiety (March 2014)
If you want to do anxiety really, really well (perhaps even as far as panic attacks!) there are a few essential ingredients needed. Without all of these, you will be unlikely to be successful in realising your fears. Steve Wichett, popular Harley Street Therapist and NLP Master Practitioner explains (in a humorous way!) the main factors his years of study have indicated as most contributing to this unpleasant and disabling feeling.
1 A bright and active mind! Dull people just can’t do anxiety very well. Something else always seems to come along and distract them. If you have an active, intelligent mind (with or without formal learning or study), then you are well-equipped for the first step towards anxiety.
2 A good imagination As they say, fear is the price of imagination. If you cannot watch a film (having first read the book) without saying “That’s not how I imagined it”, then you also qualify on this score. An essential part of scaring yourself well is to image your worst nightmare, and then step inside it. Scary…
3 The kind of mind that needs constant stimulation Much of your time will be spent ‘keeping your mind busy’ with puzzles, crosswords, wordsearch, games etc. If not, then you will have plenty of time to dwell on ‘wouldn’t it be terrible if…’ kind of thoughts. The devil finds work for idle hands…
4 The ability to see (accurately) into the future A well-developed frontal cortex enables you to ‘see how things will turn out’ highly accurately, quite a lot of the time. For example, a friend may mention one or two seemingly unrelated facts about a new house, job or relationship, and immediately your mind adds two and two together….and comes up with four! Obvious to you, and spookily correct most of the time.
5 Childhood training in anxiety Normally in the form of an anxious Mother, although Fathers do occasionally oblige with anxious, paranoia-inducing worries such as “Be careful when you go out today!” answered by “Be careful of what?” produces the response “Just be careful! You never can tell what might happen….”
6 Some trauma or illness at onset of ‘proper’ anxiety Maybe a time of great stress, change of life circumstances or illness can trigger our ‘defence mechanisms’ by producing the chemicals needed for a highly alert (ie anxious) state - that persists long after. Just feeling the fear produces more…. fear.
7 A good proximity sensor That lets you know when is a good time to start worrying intensely. For example, being one hundred miles and three months away from an airport/interview/presentation/important event it is hard to be too bothered. Having the event in the next room and in a few minutes time is likely to produce a spectacular set of physiological changes, as your body prepares for ‘flight, fight or freeze’.
If you only have two or three of the above, you’re unlikely to be able to have or do anxiety very well, or for a sustained period. You would need to it and think of ‘nothing else but really scary, unpleasant stuff’ for a long time to produce proper distress. But once you’re mastered this, you can be really anxious whenever you need to be. You can even take the advanced course in:
8 Imagine the worst Ask yourself just how bad it would be if you fainted. Fell over, froze, ran screaming from the room, sweated, went red etc. And then image that as though it is actually happening, right now (Ughhh). In full detail, from the inside, seeing everything going wrong, freezing up, fading away.
9 Now, do your best to appear completely normal Try hard to NOT let any of what you have just imagined actually happen. And of course, the harder you try NOT to have this happen, the more strongly and surely it is to come on……. Voila! A panic attack.
