Do you ever wonder what makes it so easy for some people to send back food that isn't properly prepared at a restaurant, while to others the very thought of sending it back causes intense anxiety, so they suffer in silence?

It probably has something to do with a past event or events you have completely forgotten about. When we feel overwhelmed by something we can't manaage, we often solve the problem by quickly putting it out of our awareness — forgetting that it even existed. this effectively freeezes energy around that problem.

So if you were ignored or punished or shamed when you complained about something long ago, your brain registered that as something to avoid forever. When you might like something to change now, you feel anxious without knowing it's about a forgotten incident or pattern from your history.
