We are all crazy rapid in someone else’s eyes, along with judgment!
We tend to think of mental illness as a description involving profound psychiatric problems with any diagnosis, as categorized from the Diagnostic and Statistical Guide book of the American Psychiatric Connection. These diagnoses usually have some sort of corresponding pharmaceutical drug, or tropical drink of drugs, as ‘treatment’ rapid although other methods for instance Electro-Convulsive-Therapy still exist.
We have advanced from the bedlam or asylum days of the past and yet mental illness is still rife in every single society.
Lack of basic demands, such as adequate nutrition, attention, shelter, and education; as well as prolonged drug and alcoholic beverages use, and exposure to chaotic traumas, all exacerbate the actual onset and ongoing condition of mental illness. Unfortunately, these factors are common daily experiences for a large as well as the neglected sector of our community.
In recent days (March 2012) information reports in Britain possess spoken of the intentional pain and murder of children through relatives who believed these to be witches who are ‘possessed by evil spirits. This particular seems crazy to most people, and yet is a prevailing perception in parts of Africa.
Social differences bring with them values and behaviors that other people’s cultures judge as ‘crazy’.
We live in an insane world, where, surely all the following could be deemed to become insane/crazy;
Racism – as well as discrimination, oppression, and physical violence against another person, simply because their own ancestors originated from a different region. According to the experts, we ALL originated in East Africa anyway!
Homophobia – and violence towards a person who has different choices and needs.
Fundamentalist religions — whose followers threaten the demise of those who do not stick to their code of behavior and societal norms; or those they deem as getting insulted by a prophet or even leader.
Cultural norms — such as the stoning of women charged with adultery, the cutting up of a thief’s hands, honor killing, and organized marriages.
Slavery – the actual domination of, and rudeness towards, another human being.
Human being trafficking and exploitation
Woman’s circumcision forced upon girls
Preventable diseases and regulations – whilst wealth are out there elsewhere in the country.
Corporate hype – and the psychopathic nature of the few who command the flow of variety in Western society.
Harshness to children – especially in the ‘feral underclass’, while they have been described in the growing media; children taught to cage-fight with one another for the ‘entertainment’ of the so-called Adult spectators.
Foreign aid – brought to countries with already plenty of wealth of their own for Place programs, or weapons made and intended for war.
Break down of much of the planet is rapidly fuelled by selfishness, hype, ignorance, and arrogance.
Harshness to animals – dog-fighting, badger baiting, fox-hunting; along with ‘festivals’ where animals are generally sacrificed for ‘pleasure/fun’.
Male or female selection – the getting rid of newborns because they are typically the ‘wrong’ gender.
Huge Govt waste – Unnecessary Quangos, consultants, independent reports/inquiries; moth-balled projects, and outright fraudulence.
Prohibition of contraceptives rapid by certain religious ‘leaders’ despite the prevalence of PRODUCTS, HIV, Sexually transmitted disorders, and unwanted pregnancies.
Place travel – whilst everyone is starving and without standard medical care.
Excessive Legislation — such as Health and Safety rulings that have resulted in death (the current media reports regarding unexpected emergency services being unwilling, because of the prevailing Health and Safety rules, in order to rescue a person who drowned in some inches of water. )
HOW CRAZY ARE YOU ABOUT THESE?!
They all show too little empathy, compassion, care, or even concern for the health, security, or well-being of other people.
In some of the examples over, there is also a ‘projection’ of badness onto a ‘victim’, specific an individual, group, class, or maybe culture/society. This projection will then be used as a form of validation for and normalizing involving, crazy and cruel behaviors.
This is accompanied by ruthless selfishness that says – “I matter more than you, We have the right to use and damage/destroy you. ”
We turn out to be de-sensitized to much of what we should hear about in the world because all of us simply cannot absorb it all as well as cannot do anything to prevent this kind of crazy thing from occurring.
Having worked as a psychotherapist with some individuals who have committed approaches, even murder; and getting all too often heard of intense rudeness having been inflicted upon the vulnerable child, by a parent/caretaker; I wonder why all of us don’t scan the minds of the perpetrators and find out ‘why’ they do what they do – after which to give them the efficient treatment, wherever it is possible, for all those areas of the brain that are simply not working properly.
The behaviors of such people, along with deficits in their brain’s performance capacity, have far-reaching results.
Babies are born to help parents whose brains aren’t going to be fully functioning, and this is definitely passed on to the baby, and inadequate nutrition enables often the baby’s brain to develop adequately. Damaged children become destroyed adults who find different damaged adults and pass around their damage to their progeny… and the cycle continues.
The majority of people exhibit neuroses of some sort or other, as well as mild ‘personality disorder’ traits. These may head out unnoticed in the crazy universe that we all inhabit.
Therefore, what does good, robust intellectual health look like?
I think costly the following:
Emotional stability in addition to self-regulation
Rational thoughts, and also an ability to control and also disarm any irrational feelings
Positive self-esteem and skin image
The ability to withstand challenges and also criticism
Not allowing yesteryear to negatively affect the current or future – simply by therapeutically healing the past
Demonstrating genuine care and consideration towards children, animals as well as the vulnerable in society
Using a sense of empathy and also sympathy toward others
Convenience – what is felt internally is portrayed sensitively and also assertively on the outside
Authenticity: being ‘real’ and authentic, and only wearing a ‘mask’ by conscious choice and then for a short time, for a specific and also valid purpose.
Let us remember that our brains are not thoroughly developed until we are in relation to 25 years of age – and they then have what is identified as ‘plasticity’ which allows the brain to modify, and increase neuronal relationships and pathways, in response to all of our physical and emotional needs and emotions.
It’s never too late to know a better way of relating to yourself and to others.
Profound intellectual illness and retardation might be best treated by the psychiatric authorities; but for the vast majority of us acquiring mild personality disorder attributes and neuroses, there is a strategy to ‘fill in the gaps’ instructions with psycho-emotional education in addition to integrative psychotherapy, and by studying our negative and constraining sub-conscious belief system.
