RE: Psychology Addict # 37 | What Do you Do When Things go Wrong?

in #psychology3 years ago

Hi @abigail-dantes. You are truly a precious gem to the steemSTEM community. This article is great. Tough luck for Sandra and I hope she is doing better now. I'm sorry to hear about your father but the way you feel after that are classic signs of bereavement. Thank god, you manage to get the hell out of the dark forest or else the diagnosis can be much complicated. Of course, good social support is important and often determine how well we are going to cope with difficult times but so do our personality and how optimist we are. Some people are just predisposed whether genetically or psychologically to unhealthy ways of coping, but that doesn't mean they can't. It just meant, it will be hard for them. For Sandra, it would be good for her if she can rise little by little. Even if people keep on thinking that life is a race, it's actually not; what's important is we arrive at the designated destination safely. Doesn't matter how fast you get there as long as you get there.


Hello there @conficker :) It is wonderful to see you here!

What else can I add to this comment? :) You touched on everything that is relevant and plays a role on people's emotional self-healing. With personality type being among the most significant ones, in my opinion.

I like the reflection you ended your comment with so much. I, myself, sometimes think life is a race. Then I realize that the only person I am racing against is myself! Then, I slow down the pace and am able to see all that is around me with much more precision and clarity. It sure does make for a much safer journey!

All the best to you my dear.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read and take part in this discussion!
