Because of this, I thought it would be interesting to find out why I act this certain way in most situations. This is sort of like a personality trait but also a habit that I notice I do everyday. I feel like this also has to do with my response to an experience. For example, if something unpleasant has occurred in my past, I have learned the lesson and as a result act differently than I did before. It would be interesting to apply a couple of psychological concepts and see how the way they work to influence my personality and my
Everyone has an epiphany at least once in their lifetime, and most of the time those epiphanies bring a lot of change to follow. As someone who has experienced an epiphany before, my most known epiphany was when I realized that friends can be fantastic or down-right awful role models. Obviously, most people automatically assume that a new friend will be perfect and fun to be around. However, one must remember to always figure out a person’s true colors before sharing personal life details with them. Some may show trust and even sit and listen to relationship problems, but sometimes they just want to be nosy.
Thus making it remarkably easy to detect when they aren’t truly interested in your problems. Also to keep in mind, a majority of the world thinks that we are to blame ourselves because we should have seen it coming from the beginning. So when the spiral begins, all we can really do is just sit back and
We like label our beliefs as facts when it fits our wants or needs. Our inner dialogue is a strange juxtaposition of persuasiveness and gullibility, and we often fall prey to the effects of this dynamic. I once had a friend that continually complained that no one was as optimistic as he was. Without true self-evaluation, we will only sink deeper into the comfortable quicksand of our illusions. Sometimes we are compelled to evaluation through feedback from others, other times by our own observation.
The results of my Insightfulness snapshot in Appendix A indicate that I am normally excellent at understanding what people have to say although there can be circumstances I misread what the sender is saying and I contract the wrong impression. My snapshot of Self-Disclosure in Appendix B explains that I am occasionally open with my friends but I do not constantly share each personal detail with them. I would agree with most of these results because of the type of person I am and the relationships I have formed. I definitely concur that the majority of the time I have an excellent idea of what people are communicating to me, although there is the odd instance I am completely mistaken with my judgment. I would say predominantly I am well aware of what people are communicating.
I have a loving, supportive, and fulfilling romantic relationship and I have great friends; my relationship with my family improves every day. I’ve learned the importance of self-care and recognizing when I need to take a step back and take care of myself. I’m inspired to help others, with the understanding that I may need to help people in different ways if being a therapist isn’t something that’s for me. There was a time in my life where I saw a lot of closed doors and I felt trapped, but I see so much more opportunity now that I recognize my potential and just how much control I have over my own
I always try and understand my surroundings and I often reflect on my short and long term goals. What am I doing that is working and what is not working. I often ask myself the question, how am I going to change things that are not working for me? From time to time I will have a discussion with certain family members or one or two close friends, it might be uncomfortable at times, but their honest appraisal and advice are necessary for my self-improvement. Another tool would be to try and stay aware of my emotions, as Drs.
These assessments helped me zero in on who I am and why I do some of the things I do and some of the negative things I can do if I am not paying attention. Even more importantly I was able to see myself thru the eyes of others from the unfiltered comments left on the LPI review. I have learned that my tendency to be distracted by my surroundings comes across as tho I am not engaged or care. I have allays known that I am easily distracted. I did not realize the impact it was having on those that had to work for me.
Labels don't tell the truth to who people are. We have all heard gossip about someone and immediately jumped to conclusions about them. Because of this, we can miss out on friendships, connections, beneficial conversations and positive interactions. And yes, sometimes the hallway gossip can be true, but you shouldn't judge someone based on one mistake they made, you should get to know them first. Labels are created for everyone.
It got so bad that I developed the fear of driving, constantly over analyze everything, and make up irrational scenarios. I still am dealing with some of those issues but owe a lot to those being understanding and wanting to help with my own motivation. I saw how harmony was just something people dreamed about. You learn really fast in stressful situations who is really there for you. Losing friends and yet gaining some of the best friends I still have today.
