Default Fight, fly or freeze?

How do you more often tend to respond when dealing the world inside and outside you?

Yes. Youre right. The fawn thing is without any doubt another self-defense manner.
Me too. I tend to be pretty gregarious.
Its not that I dont feel the things I express or that Im not a caring person by nature. Indeed, in my work as a teacher, my style was pretty maternal. But, yes...I caught myself sometimes doing things for others or trying to be more than helpful bc I somehow wanted to be accepted or compensate someway what I consider my wide amount of flaws.

Fighting is the last of my options to be honest. But, also had my moments.

I fight a lot unless I am legitimately concerned about emotional hurt, then its flight. I run anytime I care about someone too much. Usually I will stabilize with consistency and patience.

Normally I just mentally curl up in the fetal position while people mentally hurt me. Very rarely do I stand up for myself but when I do that's when I go that 90% of the way and scare people. I've never had to go to 100% yet
