Understanding Mental Health To Better It

Understanding Mental Health To Better It

Mental health is our cognition - our emotional wellbeing. It is how we feel, think, and behave. Based on different studies in the USA, it is said that we have the highest rate of people diagnosed with mental health disorders/problems developed in the entire world. Why is this? Our society is affected by what we do and/or how do we spend most of our time.

Can stress play an important role in this? Perhaps, our society is compared with Europe, which has a low (25%) incidence of mental health problems in comparison to USA (35%). 

How does our mental health get affected? It is affected by many things and in many ways; for instance: lack of self love; lack of self acceptance; lack of self esteem; lack of self will; lack of self confidence; etc.

Why is this? Well, because when there is no self love, people do not know how to teach others to love them or respect them; when there is no self acceptance, people have a hard time accepting them as well; when there is no self esteem, people tend to use and abuse them easily and do with them what they want; when there is no self will, people will have no power to face others or any problems; when there is no self confidence, people read this and take advantage of them very easily.

The end result in all of this is a world full of victims and not knowing how to change it! We must learn to stop being so rigid with ourselves and with life itself. 

We must have fun, laugh more, enjoy ourselves more, Love ourselves more, be Kind with ourselves more, find Productive things that would help us feel that we have achieved certain level of success.
