Have you ever been in a moment where you Stop, and with the information you have, respond with one extreme or the other?
OF COURSE You have!!!
You go through the 3F’s! Freeze. Flight. Fight.
Response time varies with each brain process. Mine is sometimes slow. I probably take a good 2 seconds to figure out if I will F or F.
It was my gf’s bday and we had just come back from a massage where they wrote ‘happy birthday’ in chocolate with a little melting chocolate covered mouse cake and some delightful champagne.
By the time we had got set up with several toasts in and a mini foto shoot at the pool, …Life was good!
And the rest is story.
Looking at the 3Fs, I consider why I respond the way I do.
Is it my commitment? Where my thoughts and emotions are in the moment? Does it have to do with my past experience? Some learned patterns?
What is the reason for responding with a Freeze, Flight or Fight? We all respond.
By wiki definition: a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival.
Lets take a look at it, shall we?
Freeze: no need for explanation
Flight: self- explanatory
Okay, so we have outlined what each response does and the conclusion is in the chocolate.
Survival of Self.
Glorious… Fabulous… Extraordinary… Self.
