Anti Depression Kit

Are you prone to depressive spells? Take heart, you are in a good company of more than a dozen million other sufferers who guzzle down their Prozac pills to get them somehow through the day. The industry, and teachers’ alliance sees to it that American kids are kept on a leash whilst parents can happily wash their hands off without taking the trouble to analyze and understand their kids’ behavior. What is going on you might ask? Is that depressive tendency is spreading wider than ever? Or is it just a giant short cut with parenting taking toll on those willing to make the best of their lives without snotty brats taking away the precious time they have left? Anyway, things are in the state of fluid change, as always, technically speaking. Now someone might say medicating kids is so much better than using some aggressive tactics to calm them down as in those old good days, which does show the thinking behind the idea.

How Do We All Fare?

So what does depression get to do with any of that? Somehow the feeling of abandonment, an increasing alienation despite the facilities like Facebook and many other changes make it almost impossible for some to get by with no support. The times are overwhelming for thousands of thousands left behind despite the State’s best attempts and any logical solutions becomes muddled. In short, despite some serious gains in terms of women’s liberation and freedom of speech, much is left for improvement at every corner, as if the Hydra’s crawled out of its lair and grows more heads aka problems to solve have been even partially touched upon. Probably that would have to do with the human nature, if anything. An example to do with health should provide some food for thought, as it were. More Americans have forgotten the smoke in the early morning, but replaced that easy nerve smoothing quick fix with food abundance where additives, bulk buying and convenience play their biggest parts. Now what feels better to your palate if not a giant scoop of ice cream served daily after dinner? Do the most obese come from those richer layers of the society? It is an obvious observation that the rich remain slim, even if that is the effect of the peer pressure and the rat race for looks reiging. All for the better for them in terms of health at least. Now the scum of the earth with a less than average pay are just scraping by to dine with no wine at the Chinese diner, and you know, old and even recent habits die a slow death, once embedded in the nervous system. But hey, are those buddies with the six packs in their hand any depressed? Could that be that the food has replaced Prozac for the less affluent folks out there? Weekly psychiatrist visits could easily drain someone’s budget if they are not watching, so then the only food choice they have left to grab is that prepackaged stuff plenty others would not touch. Hey now the mix acquired taste takes on quite a different meaning if you are even thinking of breaking free from the recent pattern of salty, sweetened mix. If you have not taken after your predecessors from other countries, it could only mean you know no different and neither do your parents. In short the brains have been white washed. With success. The food, the great comforter, though maximally processed, wins your heart and kills it as well.

Controlling Yourself

In the previous piece we briefly touched upon the issue of anger and its management. It is a natural reaction to feel angry at times as long as you do not let it convert into violent display of a hurting ego. Now we know how easy it is to push someone’s buttons, sometimes unknowingly, at others, willfully. Basically, what governs our behavior is how we see ourselves first and foremost, now that is definitely determined by nurture and upbringing we received. If the child received enough from his or her primary caretakers, the ego development is ensured, though, the circumstances may yet put those caretaking efforts to test, including illnesses, parental relations and so on. Scientists claim that is enough if one parent forges a sufficient bond with a baby, though it is a mother mostly seen as being responsible for the baby’s well being. If the light of love is gone and forced wherelse with the touching and cuddling non existent, the baby splits his or her ego. That is quite a complicated process which results in problematic behavior among other things.

What Hinders The Baby’s Development

Raising a healthy baby is quite an insurmountable task, considering how many parents are struggling with their problems sometimes simply suppressing them and remaining unaware of their own stigma. If you look at the happy families that you know quite well, it is sometimes hard to guess that something would be amiss. The psychologists say that it is because no one is born in a perfectly emotionally family with parents being somewhat puzzled by the needs babies are expressing. Plenty of young parents, despite having read piles of self help books and child rearing accounts, sound quite desperate once the baby is born. If the baby is wanted then fine, and yet, after some time, motherly affection does not suffice as the cognition and other developmental needs come into play. The reason is mothers need to be more aware of their babies and children’s needs, which is often so neglected by prospective parents, and when children have any special needs, then it is even more.

Anger Is Modelled

During any conflicts in the family or when the child is growing up and testing the boundaries as early as being a two-year-old, read, throwing temper tantrums, a knowledgeable adult is worth one’s weight in gold if not more. First time moms are often confused and consumed with worry whether they are doing things right, but what matters here is modelling the son or daughter’s behavior is key to raising a functionally adaptive kid. Therefore if you find yourself uncontrollably fuming when things come to nought, take it to heart to ponder the issue over. The most successful people in life are those whose emotional intelligence is highly ranked; this applies both to parents and leaders and virtually everybody else that gets into touch with other people.

Hypocrisy Is in All of Us

Are you feeling that the worst kind of people you could not bear to talk with are those two faced pretending to be your friend, but backstabbing you whenever they get a chance to vent behind your back? Regrettably, many people, unless occupied by some attention demanding activities, are prone to prattling about their neighbors or co-workers 24/7 if only they could. While spreading negative rumors is the backstabbing practice, most of us, average folk, just cherish any opportunity to chew some fat and share the latest scoop on those people we know so well. If you take a step back then, from that perspective, the purpose served is to strengthen the bonds of the gossiping party and the others, thus allowing us versus them divide to continue, affirming our values. Now a hypocrite would join their ranks to accompany those he or she sees as frenemies for example or simply to keep up appearances.

Are You Free?

Now who is not a hypocrite? There is a bit of that in each of us, so it is best to own up that employing some empathy and integrity go a long way. It is a rare ocurrence in the modern world to walk your talk, such people enjoy some popularity, but it is not easy to stick to your guns in the face of adversity. More value should therefore be placed on steadfastness and people with firm resolutions. Now what we mere mortals could model some more is the way some people’s staunch beliefs no matter how we regard some of their values. The research shows people with strong morals are obviously less likely to disregard the rules in force in a workplace and accept any rule violation and injustice committed on the others, including mobbing practices. They are more up front about some events that bring blood to the boiling point. Somehow it feels their numbers are growing thinner as time goes by in that me me society at large.

What is the Psyche of a Hypocrite like?

Hypocrisy is rampant within the realm of politics and show business, and any other work environment. It is the inner realm of those who are denying the other the chance of showing their true colors for the sake of denying, for obtaining a superior status despite occupying the lower or equal position. Mud slinging is popularly found as the medicine for those bitter ones that cannot simply stand the difference in opinions, decisions and values, you name it. So many join the ranks of those whose sole pleasure is expressing displeasure, for some it even becomes a relaxation technique in between pulling an act of pulling the others down. The ego takes each of the slights and turns it into a mountain in need of a stroke. Instead of promoting and fostering the feeling of good will the choice of the sour attitude ruins oftentimes the atmosphere and chances in many workplaces and families. Is it not high time pehaps you had a look at yourself now?
