Many heart attacks and cancerous diseases can stem from stress. It enlarges the blood veins and can affect the blood flow throughout one’s body. To be constantly stressed it not a good thing, in fact, it is very unhealthy. Which is why learning to manage stress is something that is, could, and should be talked about more often between people of all ages. One can make stress their enemy, one can make it their friend.
Depression is a mental illness that carries a negative stigma. Thus, no one wants to talk about depression, and as a result, the people who suffer from depression often do not receive the help that they need in the way they need to be helped. In his speech “Confessions of a Depressed Comic”, Kevin Breel discusses his own depression and the fact that depression is not discussed enough in today’s society. Breel believes that depression needs to be talked about more as it has become a more major problem nowadays. He also feels that the negative stereotype attached to depressed individuals needs to disappear.
Important issue is that in clinical populations ‘positive emotions’ such as safeness, joy, and happiness are not necessarily experienced as pleasurable but are rather frightening (Gilbert et.al, 2012). One reason being that previous experiences of these emotions may have been associated with adverse outcomes, for example, the person who says ‘happiness never lasts – when I feel happy I am always waiting for something bad to happen. Joshanloo (2012) reviews the empirical and theoretical evidence suggesting that, some individuals possess negative views on happiness and are sometimes afraid of
They can sometime pull us to do something that we really don 't even want to do like drugs or stealing or they can motivate us to achieve better things that benefit us. Thankfully in my life, my good influences have prevailed over my bad ones. However, I have seen someone I was close to who has suffered due to the dominance of bad influences, just like a major theme portrayed Macbeth by Shakespeare. It is sad, but true, that bad influences often comes from people who you are close to and trust. They could be your friends or they could be your family.
It is important to note that it is the way that people interpret these regrets that influence their well-being. Those who feel that they have made mistakes, wasted their time, and have no time to make changes may be left feeling bitter. There are also numerous factors that can influence feelings of generativity versus feelings of stagnation at this point in life. People who have positive relationships with others, good quality health and a sense of control over their lives will feel more productive and satisfied. Those who suffer from poor health, poor relationships and feel that they have no control over their fate are more likely to experience feelings of stagnation.
Many people let external problems and concepts affect their mental health which in turn ends up suppressing their souls. There are many reasons why people are happy or not happy. I am a happy human being because I think that life is extraordinary, I am happy with what I have instead of what I do not have and I truly love myself and care for those around me. To begin I examine everything I see and as such I see beauty where beauty is not obviously seen. I make the most of the small things in life.
Even though it is said to be like another individual and acts as almost a friend to whom in which it preys upon, depression is the loneliest feeling in the world. It 's hard to connect with others and one may say they feel as if their looking at the world through the other side of a sheet of glass. Completely dissociated from society. As I said earlier, you can feel alone in a sea full of people and that reigns as a particular part of depression. In many cases though, the effect of being alone does not cause loneliness in some people.
Journals are another good way to keep yourself resilient. If you’ve had a bad day, you may find it helps to write down all that angered or troubled you that day. Or, you could simply even write down what has made you feel good or paste in pictures of when you were happy. Then, when your feeling down or upset, you have something to look at to cheer yourself
Giving Brent hope and confidence, and showing him that all actions have consequences whether they be big or small; good or bad everything we do impacts someone else. ‘“People are not all Hitler, kindelah. People are very good also, like the one who made this wind toy to give happiness to everyone who pass. … When the bad memories came back in my head, here I walked to remind myself of this.’” (pg 114) This passage shows that we are meant to forgive ourselves or others no matter what horrible things have happened. And once we forgive we learn to see the beauty in our lives rather than the struggles and pain that we have gone through.
“The term mental health usually implies the capacity to love and relate to others, the ability to work productively, and the willingness to behave in a way that brings personal satisfaction without encroaching upon the rights of others” (Mental Health). We need to take a stand because too many people are in a bad state of mental health and not getting the help they need. So many people suffer or have suffered from a mental illness. “Nationally,
When people get sad and depressed they seem to stay away from everyone and everything. Stressing can give a feeling that everybody would be happy living without. I think that if we got rid of stress in this world people would be so much happier. These reasons are very truthful on why people get stressed but there are also many more. Getting rid of stress would change this world for the better.
But when I am alone, things are different. I tend to harbor a lot of apprehension and anxiety over things that I can’t control. I sometimes let my problems define who I am. If I am wronged, I can easily become deeply emotionally wounded for a long period of time. If I get upset over one thing, It is very easy for me to start thinking about all of the other negative things going on in my life.
“It’s sad that bad things happen for us to stop and look around,”-Megan Duke. Sometimes humans ignore the bad things in life hoping that it will all go away. Except not facing the problems will not make it all go away, it only makes life harder. One can be overcome with guilt for not taking action in a bad situation. Humans are selfish beings and often tend to care about one’s self more than others.
For a person who’s mad, it would give no control over how to express their anger because the decision making part of the cortex is damaged. The amygdala is responsible for emotions so anger would not manifest in a person who damaged their
Mentally, it is ideal for everyone to be in a constant state of bliss. However, this is extremely realistic; everyone will have times where they are irritable and sad. People with depression are using in a mental state in which they are irritable and/or sad; they could potentially go days without feeling any bliss. Also, depression could cause the production of one’s neurons to slow, “Repeated stress slows the production of new neurons in the dentate gyrus and may also cause neurons in the hippocampus to shrink” (McEwen 1). Stress could be a byproduct of depression, and it does many things to your
