Influences on emotional health: how things we don’t think about have an effect on our lives.

A newsbreak, a special bulletin, all parts of our daily lives, and all a part of what makes a day for us, a day. Some of us pay close attention to the reports some of us ignore them totally, or at least we believe that we do. In fact, our senses pick up millions of bits of information and it is all processed and stored into our memory banks, this is how we have come from caves to condos, and from crawling on the ground looking for slugs to eat to eating those same items as gourmet items at high priced restaurants. We, as a species, have come so far, to have achieved so much, to have stayed so close to where we began, that it shouldn’t be much of a wonder as to why our emotional fields of health have been stretched to a point of needing either to be relieved of some of the stresses or to completely snap in order to achieve that same outcome.


Speeding through our day, we have a tendency not to notice the encroachments of the input that we receive, but in the most real of terms, we DO receive the information and it DOES have an effect that produces an effect upon our emotions and our psychological make-ups, it can’t be over-stressed that this is the truth!


We are being narcotized by the daily and massive influx of ideological marketing that tells us that being abnormal is normal and that up can be viewed as being down, from a certain perspective. Now, emotionally we know the difference, but now we have a new exception to consider. Stress-producing and intrusive.


PTSI starts off as a response to input of information, some of which is very subtle, and some of which is explosively penetrated into our minds, and left to be interpreted or attempted to be excused and ignored. Both of which our minds are not designed to achieve easily! In our human minds, knowing is the first step to taking the first step, and this means that our minds want and need to interpret and use every piece of information it receives in some form, in some way. It has to find its outcome, or it is seen as an intruder.


Think about your first day of school… ever! There was fear, and probably a lot of enthusiasm to try something new. But if you are introduced into a classroom with children some of whom were not so socially cultivated, you may have had an extremely negative and frightening experience one which began your trip down emotional injury road. Even when a child complains about being ill-treated by his or her classmates, most of the time they are told to “be OK with it, because it’s just kids being kids!” but some kids are wired more closely to the sensitive sides of their mindsets, and the fears become irrationally exceptional in their unconscious levels, creating an atmosphere of fright that is just not easily dismissed.

How then, do we need to deal with each child? I say as individual persons, who are in need of special attention to their own brand of care. I don’t believe in cookie-cutter minds. I think that each person has an individual strength-sum, which has incomplete data and a store of significantly individual capabilities. These do not erode with time, they become acute.


Anyone who has been in a bad accident at any age has the memory stored, but the strength of the individual’s emotional fencing will dictate the quality of where and if it resurfaces as an interruption inside of their lives at any point during their lifetimes.

When a child is subjected to immediate exposure to damnable input, it tears away at what the mind expects as a youngling: that, being the expectation of protection from its parents. This is innate and it can be destroyed with such ease, as to make the mind of a human seem weaker than it is, in fact, it’s our most potent characteristic. As we can use the mind to create imaginative and creative outcomes.


We can shout these to the world, or we can let the world watch them mature and make an impact on their own accords, but to take away this power, creates the incisions and these that are not immediately and properly treated, become infected, and they granulate instead of healing, easily to be reopened at the slightest tug, and again a rush of emotional overflow floods into territories of the mind where it is only seen as an intruder and a problem. This, I believe, is the essence of PTSI, and this is where our lives are impacted by disorder and chaos. But it is never we, who are the disorder!


Multiple streams of information, some of it very terrifying for the younger mind, and some even more so for the more mature. Indoctrination of the thought processes begins at birth. The slap to make us breathe, the laying on to the mother’s breasts, the holding, kissing, hugging, raising, the earliest memories which are so soon replaced by information that can be recalled, all of these contribute to the personality of the person. But for the child who is absent of its earliest social necessities, can be critically entrenched inside of its own ego. Weighing everything on its own needs and having no concern for those of others in response to its never having had anyone care for his own.


A child, born in a war zone. Bereft of the sanity of a safe environment, might see fear as the only way in which to interact with any environment inside of which he or she may find oneself. This child will need a care that allows for outbursts of neediness, and days of needing to be alone and not bothered. I can only imagine the difficulties of developing lasting partnered relationships for this person.


High expectations for a person to simply “forget” their traumas are the height of intellectual idiocy, and a perpetuation of indefensibly moronic expectations!


You and I do mean YOU, the person who is reading this, are exceptionally stronger than your trauma will allow for you to believe. Your strength is shown in your living with a condition that brings many to their emotional breaking points, and to the painful decision to let it end at their own hands.


When you complain, you gain one more opportunity to be heard and to be taken for a person who is worthy of respect and agreeability to search for more reasons to be dealt with minus a judgmental attitude or an expectation of inferiority. You are a person of ability and flexibility or you would not be reading this right now, and this is something I know from a standpoint of a person who has been emotionally destroyed and found a reason and a way to try to wake up the next day!


A flood half-way around the world, people have been killed none of them is known to you, but this does have an effect on your emotions. You may pass the story with a short reply, but inside, where it has time to be analyzed, the stirring of feelings will take place!


For me, one of the more significant innovations of the mind is the usage of intuition. Humans have the ability to think ahead of what is probable to take place based upon what is the most likely connection to what is happening at a given moment or in a given geographic location. Maybe we will be correct in what we believe may take place, or maybe will be wrong, but what we do know is that we can at least try to anticipate a situation in which we might find ourselves. This is a good aspect of being what we are: sentient beings with wired-in access to our emotional foundations.


Development of individual personality traits can be difficult even under the most favorable of circumstances, but when there is coercion and there are forces and interceptive abrogation’s to the flow of safe flowing of processes, in comes the advent of traumatic onslaughts!


Of course, now, we can do much better than to think that our lives are only based on the negativities brought into the picture by PTSI, but they do have the tendency of being prevalent at times and lingering in that we are tired out from dealing with the events that they cause.


In losing my acknowledged identity, I was crippled in a way that had no avenue for to find as a way of escaping the pit I found myself wallowing in after I found out that I was there. I searched, but to say it was there, I was too fixated on just being in the darkness and wondering how I got there in the first place to try to find a way out!


PTSI’s power is that of creating unfamiliarity with one’s presence, it may stem from a past event, but in the present, it creates uncertainties that eclipse the normalcy of clear thoughts. This injury dynamic plays havoc with our brains, our intellect, our emotions, and it can keep one in so deeply, that death seems to be the only way to find a way to be relieved of the goings-on.


Anyone who wants a real chance at living with the depression and the uncertainties that come along with this condition is hard-pressed to do this one and very difficult task: maintain an in-touch relationship with one’s identity!


PTSI and any of a number of emotional issues are difficult, intrusive and can even make one self-abusive, but they can be lived with and treated, and they can in some cases be overcome. Kill off the guilt, it wasn’t your fault, whatever the cause(s), it was beyond your abilities to control and to protect yourself. Our minds are wired for self-protection, so if something has disrupted that process, it couldn’t have been self-inflicted!
