tell him to have to think positively and only he can find happiness for himself, and try not to be frustrated and learn to accept things as they are and do things in the direction he wants himslef to be, and most of all smile and socialize with happy people
Is there something he feels is holding him back? Is there something he wants to do? Getting hobbies always helped me, a busy mind can't be upset so much
Sometimes it can be integral, hormone imbalances and such can cause an individual to become more susceptible to depression, so if nothing helps him, then perhaps he could get checked for a hormon deficiency.
Maslow's hieracay of needs is about achieving self actualisation i.e. happiness. He does say that it isnt sustainable and you go through spells of self actualisation, so I think half of what you say is right. However, if you can identify aspects in life, you can correct them and stack the odds of happiness in your favour.
For example, happiness is marred if you are in pain or you lost your job.. all this relates to maslow.
You mean I can blame Maslow for my losing my job? All kidding aside, I was referring to a report a Psychologist whose name escapes me, said that Human Beings are merely angry beings with occasional outbreaks of Happiness. I do, however, agree with you that we can bring more Happiness into our lives by overriding the influences of anger and sadness, yes.
Yes, I know the psychologists, but cant remember. But the critism of this is that life development changes and evolves and you are more likely to be angrier in your teens than in your 70s. Hormones have a lot to do with it amongst other aspects.
For example... pre menstruating women are more likely to be angrier during this time of the month because the hormones become out of balance... some people suffer more or less and the condition can be eleviated with a change in diet.
People, another example, are more likely to be stressed if they have a high carb, full fat diet without the necessary balance of fruit veg etc. They are malnurished although they suffer obesity. Is the point clearer now?
Okay, first off; You need a shower! Secondly; I noticed the difference a great deal when I first went back to college ten years ago. The students were so apathetic about their lives and could not understand why a 30-something generally regarded life with a sense of upbeat enthusiasm despite the crap I went through at their age. Wisdom tempers the anger if you've learned from your adversities, otherwise you just become more angry(That I've seen in my contemporaries as well). There, short enough for ya?
You single , got hair? Steady Sheep focus focus,! You automatically win the debates with the 19 year old mind o mush since you've already tried whatever they say and you know it aint gonna work! The lassies know that too, they'll be hunting you like mountain lions in heat... Walk the trail with care and focus!
I define happiness as the difference between what I expect and what I get. If I expect alot and get little, the difference is huge and I am unhappy. But if I expect little and get little, I am content. If I expect little and get alot I am happy! Keeping the gap short is where I find happiness
this is good, but you need to have a baseline assessment in order to draw a plan of how to get there. That is why, although boring etc, it is essential to have assessment. The cycle is APIE... assess, plan, implement and evaluate. You cant get anywhere without assessment, that is why I asked those questions (although not comprehensive enough ... but this is internet!). lol x
Something I always do when I'm feeling angry, sad, or upset is write it all out on paper. I don't stop until I feel exhausted and have gotten it all out of me. I then take it outside, light it on fire with a match, and watch the ashes float away. After this, I feel much happier and more at peace with myself. Burning my problems and watching them drift away gives me a sense of empowerment. Perhaps your friend could try an exercise like that?
This person needs to be reminded what they have to be thankful for...Are they breathing? Are they in mostly good health?? Do they have food and shelter?? And they have at least one good friend, right? well there are somethings to be grateful bout...that should make them happy. My point is they have more than many in this world then they should be happy. Sorry but I have had leukemia and other cancers and I am still relatively happy. Good luck with your friend Chinweike cheers
Think about it. Can you say you are truly happy? Is there something you feel is missing in your life? Love, money,family???? Is there really a true happy person out there with no worries. Lets see!!!!!
