There are millions and millions of psychiatrists/therapists/psychotherapists in this world but still the mental disorders are just increasing.
The people who has a mental disorder just becomes more and more sick, the suicide-rate is extremely high, the killing and abuse against other people are on the up-rise.
It is estimated that a woman born in South Africa has a greater chance of being raped than learning how to read.
It seems as though more and more people (that lives in wealth) are seeing a therapist and it has become something that is socially acceptable.
But how come the mental-disorders are increasing? Is it just because we, who has money, are getting spoiled in search for “happiness”, never becoming satisfied with what we have?
I can’t really imagine a person who is living in poverty complaining about depression, concentration disorders or insomnia.
I guess they have other things to prioritize - like getting food for the day to be able to survive.
I’m not saying that the mental-disorders that we are experiencing aren’t for real or that it’s just because we are spoiled – I know for a fact what the mind can do to you, when it takes over and you become a slave to your own thoughts, emotions and feelings. I know how it is to live in misery and how it is to experience that you just can’t stand yourself, where eventually your mind has taken over you physically and taking your own life seems to be the “only way out”.
I have started to realize what kind of impact the media have on us. Where we who has money (and time) get influenced by the pictures we see. The pictures tells us how we should look, behave and what we “need” to become happy. We will never get satisfied with what we have/who we are as long as the media constantly and continuously is telling us that we need to change/buy things to become “better”.
We don’t even get to learn in school how false the media is portraying life; we don’t have enough education to be able to think for ourselves and not getting influenced by everything we see.
The school-system is just promoting competition and programming.
Instead of focusing on life and what is best for all – you learn that you need to change who you are, that you need to be “better” than others, that you need to change your appearance, that all you are is an appearance, that you need to have a lot of money, that you need to compete against everybody else to become “the best you can be”, that all that matters is how you are portraying yourself, that all that matters is what others might think about you and that if you become “perfect” on the outside then you will get happy. We don’t live for ourselves anymore, we live and adjust ourselves to become what we think others want us to be, we try so hard to fit in that we completely forget about what it really is to live, we adjust according to how others/the media tells us to live.
If you look at this you soon realize why so many people just can’t stand it anymore, why people kill themselves, why eating disorders exist, why obesity is increasing, why self-harm is so common, why self-mutilation exists, why alcoholism and alcohol exist, why so many needs treatment for drug-problems, why vanity has become so common that we don’t even reflect upon if it is normal and should be acceptable, why parents put make-up on their 4-year old daughter just so she can win a beauty-contest – so that the parents get rich, why everybody seems to have some kind of mental-disorder.
We are just following these “trends” and never stop and ask why we allow this in our world and our reality, why we accept ourselves to promote mental disorders through constantly allowing ourselves to keep on dieting and comparing ourselves to others. STOP!
Just realize that we collectively have created all the mental-disorders and therefore we can stop them together as well.
All we need to do is breathe and stop living in the mind, we need to do what is best for all, and what is best for all is to stop the shallow competitions and instead stand up and start to take self-responsibility for what we accept and allow to exist within our world. Start to listen to the physical and what it requires.
Remember and take into consideration that the psychiatrists/therapists/psychotherapists wouldn't be able to exist and provide for themselves if it weren't for mental-disorders. So how can you expect that they will "help you" If that would, at the same time mean that they wouldn't get an income? If they “help you” they will, at the same time, lose their job. You are the only one who can help yourself.
