Today I’ll be answering if you should kiss someone having a panic attack.
This is yet another post from the anxiety series that we’re doing on the site.
We’ve been learning about the many different scenarios in where a panic attack induced from possible anxiety, and what to do.
But now we’re gonna look at if it would be smart to kiss someone dealing with a panic attack.
Should you kiss someone having a panic attack?
Yeah, if you believe there’s a connection that you have with the person having an attack that’s special. The person might learn “something” about you that they never knew or accepted. However, a hug or slap could get the same result as well.
If there’s a connection
If there’s a solid connection between you and the person having the panic attack then it might actually make things better.
On a scientific level, there’s research that supports the idea that something as small as a hug could make someone feel better.
There’s a lot of different things that you could do to be supportive of the person.
One of the strongest is to practice their breathing routine with them.
Or in this case, you could even give them a kiss to calm them down.
This can only work if you’re a person that the person having the panic attack would want to see.
You might learn something
Going off what was mentioned in the last heading, it can only work if there’s a connection between you and the person having the panic attack.
What this situation can do is help you understand if you are as close with the person having anxiety filled moment.
You’re there as the person who’s supposed to help them calm down and when someone’s losing their mind with fear, just going to tell them a lot.
It’s going to tell them if they’re really that into you.
We’re at our realest point with ourselves when we can know who, or what we want in a moment of panic.
Hug or slap could get the same result
A hug, or even slap could get the same desired really with someone suffering from a panic attack.
The point with helping this person is to help snap them out of their active anxiety.
A gentle hug or even slap could work just as well as a kiss.
This proves to be true because it’s the feeling of a warm embrace, and more importantly who it comes from that matters more.
It can be any act that involves contact that’ll hopefully draw their attention away from their stressful situation.
Get to know the person better, surprisingly there are people who would prefer a little slap instead of the warmer approach to help them get back into the swing of things.
But to each their own (I guess).
