When there's a stressful situation with no real danger like we need a hug or we stress-eat. Are we trying to develop in our brain networks a fear of actually dangerous situations instead of fear of situation when we're safe and have what we need?
Or what is the reason behind the evolution of this phenomenon?
Some more examples of the followed phenomenon:
- Antidepressants are part of the official treatment plan of depression or PTSD.
- When we cause ourselves an injury, we pat our wounds.
- People crave sweets after exercise (might seem like an escape from a predator to our body)
Could those be examples of it?
