    I know that some phrases put me on edge more because they've been said that much when I'm panicking that I associate them and it makes me question it as well. People reminding me of who they are often helps me a lot.

    "Everyone goes through this."

    Just that one simple statement really impacts me cause it makes me feel like there's nothing to get so worked up about.

    I printed this one out that I found on tumblr (wish I could remember where abouts, I think it's how I found this forum also) but yeah not exactly a phrase as it's quite long but I printed it and stuck it in my wallet so I can always access it and read through it.. nearly have it memorised, I find it really helpful. >>

    "Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass."

    In a stressful social situation I have used this: "It’s okay. You will get another chance and there is always another option. You have been through worse embarrassing situations and you survived. "

    When my mind is switched on nightmare mode while being awake and it tests the limits of every fear, imagination and past experience that I've associated with darkness, I would try to calm myself and say: "You know this is irrational. You don't deserve this struggle. You will get through this and you'll be okay as always. You are not alone and there is help. "

    Some panic attacks I don’t know how to stop. It can happen after a burst of anger or irritability with aggression and when I start to realize that I have destroyed my relationship with a loved one. My mind would desperately try to think of how to fix the damage. But people are not like appliances. I can’t just fix this. And then the fear of losing them would set me off.

    "accept"- it's the opposite of fighting, conflict, fear, which is what panic is.
