I’m in between psych papers and other papers and I found a page of things I was jotting down that came to me as a lesson was happening.
Although it may not be important or something people already know, even though I already knew this but I guess it sorta renewed it all. Opened up some more understanding on something simple I already knew.
I’d scan the paper so you’d see the thought process as well, but you wouldn’t be able to read my excited hand writing.
"Everyone has a story.
A situation may not be serious to you, but it is to them.
Their hardiness might have been worn down or weak, and perhaps yours is still good. Perhaps it doesn’t amount to your problems - but this is huge to them.
Hardiness - ability of an individual to cope w/stress.
- Different thresholds
- Different experience
Problems -> stress, pessimism, self-helplessness/self, fulfilling prophecies, personal change
Have to be conscious of others
This was during my Organizational Behavior class and it had to deal with work environments, but honestly it goes without saying that it applies to everything including you interacting with others. I’m sort of obsessed with keeping other’s situation in mind, and not until recently did I take a break and concentrate more on myself than the usual, but this isn’t a hard or bad thing to try on a human level. A lot of people really need to solidify this.
Do with it what you will.
