I have noticed that posts about depression, struggling with life, as well as mental health, have the most views. This means that many readers are interested in it.
So today I decided to write about mental health.
In today’s world a lot of people have mental health problems. I’m not talking about lime, pans pandas or down syndrome. I’m talking about people who get mental health problems for no particular reason.
People who start to feel worried or stressed and they don’t know why. For some of us, even going to open places like a food store can give a lot of anxiety, and we just don’t understand why we feel this way.
I think that anxiety comes when we forget ourselves. We live in a stressful world, we are forced to rush. Everyone around us is running and we keep trying to go faster. It’s always, I’m late, can you move, we are late with a project, why is your part of the project late? We get blamed for being slow, for not being fast enough. It is at this point we forget ourselves. We skip meals and don’t get enough sleep, because we have to complete a lot of tasks in a limited amount of time. So at a certain point our body can’t handle it and it can develop into long term anxiety.
Some of us might sometimes think that we are not capable or we are not good at handling things. That isn’t true, we are good at it. But only if we don’t let other people and our environment to cause us stress. For example, maybe your colleagues at work completed their task that they had been asked to do, faster than you. But we are all different. Maybe they don’t have children to take care of, or perhaps someone is helping them. And in your case, you are alone to handle it all. We should never compare ourselves to other people. Because we never know what is happening in their lives.
Do you see great pictures on Instagram and a chic life? Of course nobody wants to post pictures of a messy home or dirty clothes. I have noticed that people are mostly posting happy moments, their hair and makeup is done nice, clean home and photoshop colors. I believe that many pretend that everything is fine, even when it is not. And we are looking at those pictures and we think, how can they do it all? My house looks messy, I haven’t cooked yet and I didn’t even brush my hair yet. We get the wrong impression of what is happening in other people’s lives, and when we start comparing it makes us feel worthless. Media can be toxic and can give us negative thoughts.
I have much more to say on this topic, but I don’t want to make it too long, so I will talk about it more in a second post about mental health.
Big thank you Steve, for correcting mistakes in my post🤗
