Mental Health: Is It Important For Someone To Be Curious If They Have Mental And Emotional Problems?
If someone had a problem with their car, they would probably take it to a garage to be fixed. There is then no need for them to take a deeper look into what is going on, as another person will do that for them.
However, if someone had mental and emotional problems, it is unlikely that another person would be able to fix them. Sure, they might able to take something, but this approach is unlikely to actually solve what they are going through.
Then again, someone like this could find that there is not a lot of help available. This could show that one has gone to their doctor to see if they can do anything, only to find that what they needed wasn’t provided.
If this is what has taken place, one could believe that there is nothing that they can do and end up suffering in silence. What they are going through is then going to be something that they simply have to put up with.
The Current Situation
After having this experience, one could come to the conclusion that more needs to be done by the government to assist people. One could find it strange that there is plenty of help for physical problems, but nowhere near the same kind of help for inner problems.
It could be said that this comes down to the fact for so long, what is going on internally has been overlooked by society. Due to this, it is going to take a while for society to provide the solutions that its citizens need to handle inner problems.
No Time to Wait
Nonetheless, if someone is not in a good way, it is not going to be as if they can wait until something is done. They could be in such a bad way that if they don’t find help soon, they may not be around for much longer.
In this case, the sooner the government provides the assistance that they need, the sooner their life will change. Clearly, this is not going to be a good position to be in – they could feel extremely helpless.
It is then going to be as though there is only one way for them to get out of a building and this exit is blocked. However, what if they don’t need to rely on the government to provide them with the help that they need?
What if there is another way for them to attain the help that they need to transform their life? What if the reason that they are unable to realise this is because they believe that there is only one way for them to get out of the building that they are stuck in?
A Key Component
If one is looking for the government or a person in particular to provide them with the answers, it could show that they are not very curious. One is then going to be passively waiting around for what they need to just appear.
Yet, if they wanted to watch something, they could end up looking through dozens of films to find the right one to watch. There could be a number of reasons as to why they are not taking matters into their own hands and looking for answers.
The Information is There
Of course, there is the chance that one is in such a bad way that they can’t even function properly. With this aide, if they can think properly there is going to be all kinds of information available online.
So as long as they have a computer or a Smartphone, a lot of information will be at their fingertips. This doesn’t mean that they will instantly find what they need, but as long as they keep going, it might only be a matter of time before they find something that can assist them.
One of the reasons why one wouldn’t take matters into their own hands, and look for what they need to assist them, can be due to the effect that the education system had on them. During this stage of their life, they may have lost touch with their curiosity and come to believe that authority figures know everything.
As a result of this, they would have lost touch with the part of them that loves to learn and come to rely on other people to tell them what is true and what isn’t. This would have set them up to be intellectually stunted.
Instead of being able to act like an individual, they will be stuck in a dependent state; they will be like a child that is waiting for a parental figure to tell them what to do. If they are waiting for the government to assist them, this will most likely be the same government that provided them with an education that stopped them for being able to think properly.
Along with this, they may have a number of beliefs that have stopped them from taking matters into their own hands. For example, they could believe that there is nothing that they can do or that there life will always be the way it is.
The beliefs that are defining how they see life and themselves are not going to be the truth; they will just be things that their mind has created. Along with this, deep within their being is likely to be part of them that is very curious.
Ultimately, if one is not in a good way, it is going to be vital for them to do everything that they can to find a way forward. By making a commitment to themselves that they will find a way and getting the ball rolling - the universe is also likely to do what it can to assist them.
