Feeling out of control is not a healthy emotion and can easily lead to anxiety, depression, and potentially dangerous physiological complications. It is important to remind yourself that even though you cannot control everything that is scary, you do have a lot of control in your life.
Avoid impulsive decisions that you may regret later. It is normal for anyone who is traumatized and has added vulnerability in their job to want to escape the situation.
For example, flight attendants, pilots, police officers, firefighters, and bank tellers often question their career decisions after a traumatic event.
If someone needs to take time off in order to make appropriate career decisions, this might be beneficial. Outside consultation with a professional may be helpful in these situations.
Many individuals canceled vacation or work plans after the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001. Some took the day after the attack to be with family or friends as a way to cope.
Taking control of these decisions promptly was important. These decisions helped reduce fear temporarily and were not likely to lead to permanent restrictions or changes in one's life or career.
However, at some point getting into anxiety provoking situations may be necessary such as going on a plane for work related reasons or for vacations.
Going back to places where a trauma occurred such as your workplace or an area of your town may be important for one's career.
Those who believe that their life is being restricted in a negative way by a traumatic event might need outside help to overcome their fears.
