There is no question that mental health is a major component of emotional well-being.
In his book, “The Science of Happiness,” social psychologist Robert Cialdini claims that the best way to build a strong emotional well-being is to engage in regular, positive, and purposeful activities. These are activities that build a positive mental attitude and positive emotions. To find out more, check out the link.
One of the most common reasons mental health is tied to emotional well-being is because when a person’s mental health is poor, they are less likely to enjoy life as they once did and hence less likely to feel happy, healthy, and satisfied with themselves. This is one of the two reasons why depression and anxiety are so prevalent. In our study of 5,000 college students, I found that those with higher levels of depressive symptoms were also less likely to be happy.
It is not only those with the highest levels of depression who are most likely to experience anxiety and stress. Those with low levels of anxiety are also less likely to be depressed. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had both anxiety and a depressive episode during my college years, but I never felt like my depression was the result of my anxiety. In fact, a friend of mine has a very common diagnosis of borderline personality disorder where he experiences anxiety and depression at the same time.
Ive also been on a rollercoaster of feeling anxious and depressed and have been to a few therapy appointments where I was told I had borderline personality disorder. I never really felt that I was a borderline person because I didn’t feel like I could fit into any of the categories that were proposed in the first place, but I think that may, in part, be because I didn’t have a strong enough personality to be categorized as either a depressive or an anxious person.
I think people like me, who are actually self-aware, can be more emotionally stable than people with self-awareness, who get stuck in their own heads and think they know what to do. The thing is that these people can see only what is in front of them, and they can’t do anything about it.
The problem is that this “seeing” is often in our heads, not in our hearts, so we don’t know how to move out of it. It’s the same problem as the issue of self-awareness.
As it turns out, as a person with self-awareness does not have to be in control of their thoughts and feelings. It is possible to be self-aware and still have the self-awareness to know when to get out of a destructive pattern of thinking. This is called meta-cognition, or the ability to see more than one thing at the same time. It is also called having a third eye.
Meta-cognition is the ability to see more than one thing at the same time, but also know when to get out of a destructive pattern of thinking. Our third eye allows us to see the bigger picture of things. As a person with self-awareness, we are able to see the truth through the big picture. We are also able to see the truth of what we are doing by knowing the truth of what is going on inside our head.
The problem is that meta-cognition is a very difficult thing to do. It requires a lot of focus, and we don’t have an easy way to figure out what is going on. Because we have a sense of what is going on inside our heads and it is also something that is learned from the environment, we can’t see it all.
