One way is through something called ‘revictimization’; many children who suffered abuse as a child will grow up to be abused again. Long term effects of abuse and neglect can include: emotional difficulties such as anger, anxiety, sadness or low self-esteem; mental health problems such as depression, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), self-harm, or
Individuals used other people’s cues on certain situations that lead them to anxiously expect rejection. For those individuals with higher rejection sensitivity levels, the fear of being rejected or expectations of abandonment may have damaging upshot on interpersonal functioning of an individual. Having high rejection sensitivity levels may cause behaviors that might push others to actually reject a rejection sensitive individual (Downey et al., 1998). Individuals that are rejection sensitive have the feelings of insecurity, anxiousness, misapprehension of social cues that result to rejection of others into
When reality begins to set in, a flood of emotions can result. Anxiety, protest and anger are just a few of the emotions that can be felt during this difficult time. Anger may be targeted toward hospital staff, God, other family members, one's self or even the loved one who has parted. Guilt and mood swings are also common and reactions for someone to experience. The third phase is restoration.
Anyone who influences someone else by saving his or her lives is a hero. Many nurses and doctors are not highly talked about as being well known super heroes. But to me they are the definition of heroes. Everyday someone in this world goes through personal issues, whether that is illness, death, or financial issues. Self doubt can cause someone to have a bad day, or even doubt their existence.
Not just children are being affected by not having insurance, homeless, hard working, and elderly people struggle everyday to survive. Citizens can get free treatments for basic conditions without the fear of not being able to afford them. This can help reduce the spread
It is usual for people to experience emotional and physical after-effects or stress reactions following a traumatic event. Sometimes these aftershocks appear immediately after the event, however are person dependent. Depending on the severity of the event, the signs and symptoms of these reactions may last. The way an individual copes with crisis is contingent to his or her own history and prior experiences. Sometimes traumatic events are so painful that professional assistance may be necessary in order to
Peer Pressure – The pressure to conform and obtain approval from one’s social group can lead to individuals feeling confused and at odds with themselves. At a stage when young adults struggle to define and discover themselves, this additional stress causes them to act in ways and manners that they may not be comfortable
‘An ongoing trauma, like the death of a parent or a beloved person, that starts early in the child’s life has the potential to dramatically alter the trajectory of child’s development. However, the impact of a stressor may vary considerably from child to child depending on each child’s age & developmental level, inherent resiliency, learned coping mechanisms, and external sources of physical, emotional, and social support. Although some children who experience such losses & trauma may be resilient to it, others may not be able to fully grieve the death of the loved one & may develop trauma symptoms that can have a long-lasting negative impact on the development, health, and safety of the child, which is a condition known as Childhood traumatic grief (CTG). It thus becomes important for professional therapists/counselors & also family members to identify children with CTG & to assist them in the grieving process, so as to provide them with appropriate treatment & therapy on time’ (Cohen et al.,

This constant state of poise takes away from productivity, when a person could be focusing instead and accomplishing more.

The stimulation provokes excitement — a dopamine squirt — that researchers say can be addictive. In its absence, people feel bored. The resulting distractions can have deadly consequences, as when cellphone-wielding drivers and train engineers cause wrecks...these urges can inflict nicks and cuts on creativity and deep thought, interrupting work and family life”, (Rechtel).
This feeling of isolation creates an obstacle of getting back involved in society and resuming personal life. Another common PTSD occurrence involves the patient experiencing flashbacks. During these flashbacks, it can overwhelm one’s sense of reality and make it seem the event is happening again for the first time, “Mimicking the real thing because it provokes a similar level of stress in the body” (Trauma Recovery). The aspect of the heart pounding and the preparation of muscles to react as they did at the time can have some patients believe it is occurring a second time, making any other symptoms worse. Emotional breakdowns are common after experiencing flashbacks and can lead to the patient having energy outbursts where it is hard for them to control themselves.
I do agree that having occasional arguments is healthly in any relationship. Although, couples that argue repeatatly and makeup, might not know when to call it quits. Which can cause them to be involved in a toxic relationship. Another issue with being argumentative is the affect that it can have on family members, friends and possibly work. By being in a relationship with constant arguing, others could be feeling fearful from hearing there constant bickering, not knowing what could happen between the couple and feeling annyoid knowing htat this could affect couple outings and ruin plans.
