Are You in a Crisis?

        Here, "crisis" means "someone believes that without immediate ac-tion by somebody, a catastrophe will occur." The catastrophe may be the loss of one or more prized assets like life, a relationship, health, integrity, trust, respect, safety, freedom, etc. Do you face a crisis now?

        Low-nurturance families and stepfamilies experience problems more often than healthy intact biofamilies. Troubled family adults need to check for psychological wounds and unawareness of seven key topics. .

        Option - choose a non-distracted time and place, and assess (a) who's leading your personality subselves now, and (b) what your ruling sub-selves really need right now. Try saying out loud "I need ____ right now, or ____ will happen." If you still feel someone's physical, mental, or legal wel-fare is in immediate danger, (c) call 911, your doctor, the police, and/or your clergy, therapist, and/or lawyer, in appropriate order.

      Typical "crises" are symptoms of two core problems: unaware-ness + someone's personality is currently ruled by a chaotic and/or terrified false self. Note that thinking and speaking the word "crisis" can be emo-tionally provocative, and may amplify your stress. Option: reframe your sit-uation as an "urgent problem" or similar, and see how you feel.

        Note that self-improvement Lesson 2 here is about discerning and resolving problems effectively.
