Personally, I have I always had a problem with not believing in myself and thinking so low about myself. I always worry and fear about everything, and never seem to look at the bright side of things. Due to my low self esteem, I became so unsure of myself, always questioning if i am even likeable amongst others and question if i am good enough doing anything. I became very sensitive to various comments and started to have difficulty in concentrating. Mostly, due to the fact that i was bullied,this led me feeling very anxious which led to me developing panic attacks, and losing a lot of my self
I feel as though I need to work on trusting others more, and following-up with situations. It is very difficult for me to trust people. Although, it could be considered a good/bad thing based on the situation, I want to be able to open-up to others more, and it is something that I am working on. There are also a lot of times where I refuse to ask for help because I think I have the situation under control. When in reality I need some sort of extra help.
Nothing could be further from the truth. For centuries, people have believed that expressing your emotions is a sign of weakness, of poor self-control and difficult nature. We 're taught as children that emotions should cause shame. To display happiness, sadness, anger, excitement gives an advantage to other people to exploit you. It could also be the
Making connections can also help a person develop resilience, and if a person makes connections with people who experience the same trauma, then they can return to their normal level of functioning much sooner. Using coping strategies is also a good idea. It helps people deal with their emotions at the time, and by coping, they can retain their current level of functioning. High levels of functioning, play into people who are being resilient. Lastly, one needs to work on being adaptive, and accepting that things may change, but that does not mean they have to be less resilient, they need to always be evolving.
Every time I face difficulties, I will feel stress. It is because I want to do the best, on the other hand, I am afraid I would make mistake. Therefore, I tend to do things that I am good at, in this way, I can handle the problem in the best way without making mistake. After reading this book, I realized that I have to make some changes. In chapter 5, the author claimed that social workers need to accept who we are.
Things like initiating sex, being rejected, being afraid to get in trouble or even asking for help are all things that can make you feel vulnerable or weak however vulnerability is not a weakness. For most people vulnerability is something they try to numb but you cannot numb vulnerability it just plays with your other emotions and instead of being vulnerable you then become mad or sad or frustrated and then in turn you may drink or do drugs or some other things that you have not fully thought out before acting. We pretend how we act doesn’t have an effect on people but it does if we feel vulnerable and act rationally that person could also act rationally towards you and In turn people act your emotion if your sad they can become sad for example. I have experienced vulnerability in racing I was the youngest person in a field or people all ages from 20-70 years of age and I was the 14-year-old boy just starting out. Right from the go I was behind and off the pace and even though I was learning by running in last place all the time I was ashamed to be there because it was something that made me feel like I wasn’t worth being out on that race track.
Which makes a lot of sense because I am definitely able to feel the emotions of the people around me. Personally, I believe that everyone on this earth has a purpose for being here. In the past few years, I have discovered that my purpose is to help other people to be happier, and to help
I always give my absolute best and apply myself wholeheartedly. I have learned that trials produce perseverance and endurance. It is essential to be determined and I will keep striving to be the best I can be. I have proven I can excel academically while having an academic load and I handle obstacles with a positive outlook. I feel I am a well-rounded individual and I hold an optimistic perspective on life because life is too short to do otherwise.
I want people to recognize the work I do. I like to look at the big picture rather than the minute details. I’m pretty good at picking myself up and brushing myself down after a let down. I have a good handle on my life and can discipline myself to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. I have a great imagination and can vision what my future will look like.
As a matter of evidence, I did not have self-awareness at the time I thought being intellectually intelligent while I was not emotional intelligent. Consequently, I was not able to manage my emotions according to how I had to do it. Otherwise, some would say I could control my emotions. In addition, I was still struggling to motivate myself. Although I was empathic but then I could have been more empathic if I could manage my emotions in the past, thus Goleman was going to further say, “…; empathy appears an essential step in fostering altruism and compassion.
