We often tend to perceive our everyday reality and the things we can feel with our senses as real, in a way for granted. We assume that these things are just as they seem to be, full stop. As it’s really impossible we are wrong, isn’t it? That our senses can trick us and our feelings may not always be in line with reality?
There may be numerous reasons of such disorders, which unable people to be objective while assessing the surrounding world. Sometimes it’s just a matter of a worse period in life or just a temporary problem.
However, it also happens that there are people who always perceive the reality in a way known only to them. There is a great number of such groups. There can be individuals who believe that they are the best at everything, the smartest, more graceful, more intelligent than others and only the Lord knows what else. There is also a group of people, who just on the contrary, belittle themselves, the things they’re capable of and the successes they manage to gain. Does it mean that in the first case we face people who are total snobs and in the second one modest martyrs?
Certainly not, it often happens that family and friends don’t notice any worrying signs. Why should they? The individuals struggling with their inner anxieties often smile a lot, are independent and do well in life. So what on earth is the reason to be worried about them?
Possibly, a more careful observer would notice that the smile is just glued to their faces and that somewhere there, in the deepest layers of their eyes one could notice fear, sadness and maybe a great disappointment with life? The whole fight, most of the times, takes place in one’s head and soul. Even if one’s mind indicates that the emotional reaction may not by rational, our emotions often don’t comply with the mind. It happens that a failure may be dwelt upon for the next few decades, while experiencing successes may be accepted as something ordinary, and we do it almost in an indifferent manner.
Such individuals live between what is real and what is a dream. The wakefulness means the issues that they manage to perceive correctly, and the dream depicts the things which just seem to be true to them. That’s why, we should avoid judging others too quickly, since we don’t know what pushes them to behave in this or that way and what daemons they need to face. Their problems may be a piece of cake for a casual observer, the issues they would never allow to bother them at all.
Since they live in their rich, but often painful emotional life. How can you be sure that you see and understand everything well?
While dealing with others you should express your opinions carefully and even if you decide to express them, since you’ve got the right to do it, use the language that won’t hurt such people, knowing that they experience everything more intensively than an average Joe.
The mind and emotions can trick us, that’s why we need to take care of ourselves and put our own well-being on the first place to be happy and to function in the society in a way we really want to.
Stress, uncertainty, being temporarily emotionally unstable may have numerous causes, so they can catch us in their claws unnoticed. That’s why, it’s truly important for us to learn how to communicate how we feel, as no on can read our minds yet.
Let’s invest in ourselves. Let’s develop our interests. Let’s meet new people and see new places. Only then we will be able to avoid thinking about our own hopelessness and we will focus on taking actions instead. Actions which will allow us to heal some of the old wounds, which have appeared here and there in our thoughts or emotions.
While trying to overcome our inner fears and disappointment with our own lives, we will stop living between what’s real and what’s a dream. We will stop feeling like prisoners of our own emotions and we will become more objective while assessing what happens to us and the reality we really live in.
See you around!
