Indeed, our life is based on perceptions but do we know what exactly perceptions are and how it affects them?  Perceptions are how we think and draw results about other people or ourselves. Generally, we think we can draw perceptions only about others but in contrast to that more often, we draw perceptions about ourselves. Perception is when we judge and bring conclusion from those opinions, it could be both positive or negative. Perceptions play an important role in our life; they govern how we behave and think in our day-to-day life. Sometimes we draw the conclusion and create perceptions about others too early, which usually creates misunderstanding, so always be patient while drawing perceptions about anyone or even yourself as this will not affect your relationship with others but could also bring major changes in your life. In social psychology perceptions play a major role, they determine how we think, how we behave, what we do, and determine our mental health majorly.

Perception and Everyday life

Perception depicts our everyday life. Let’s look at how it affects us, perception is basically how we look and think around us, and that depicts most of our actions and how we react to things. Each person’s perception could vary for the same thing. For example recently a picture had gone viral on the internet in which there was a dress which was visible blue & black to some people and white & golden to others. This difference can be most possibly explained by different perceptions of people to look at the same thing. This is the perfect example of different perception and how it affects our basic understanding of things. Perceptions are what make us different from other people and which could help us understand things differently from others. We all are different from one another, and perceptions play a major role in it.

How we create perceptions

There are four ways through which our perception is depicted:

1)  Heart: We create perceptions sometimes from our heart that is when our emotions and feelings are involved and thus, we make some decisions emotionally. We feel things more when we create perceptions through the heart.

2)  Mind: We use logic and rational thinking when we create perceptions through our minds. Usually, when we use logical arguments, our perceptions are not biased.

3)  Matter: Matter here means any particular situation due to which we create perception and this type of perception also changes quickly according to the varying situation.

4)  Energetics: It means that perceptions which are made due to the surroundings and energy around us. It is mostly based on how we create perception getting influence or motivated by others in a team or organization.

Tips on how to develop the right perceptions:

  • Always carry a positive attitude to others as well as yourself
  • Try to know yourself more, this will help you minimize uncertainty.
  • Using logical arguments while creating perceptions eases you to conclude.
  • Communication is the key to get a clear view of everything so always communicates openly.
  • Be patient and try to slowly drive yourself to any conclusions.

  Perception is one of the most powerful tools through which you could bring all the positive changes in your life.

When we think of childhood trauma, we usually think of the most obvious examples: abuse, abandonment, neglect. These are all harsh things to endure as a child, and they all affect us as we grow up. But there’s another kind of trauma that often goes unnoticed and untreated—one that can lead to a lot of pain in our adult lives.

What is childhood trauma?

Childhood trauma is any event or circumstance that causes unduly high amounts of stress in your life. These can be things like divorce, loss, frequent moves, or even just being an extremely sensitive child. They might not seem like much at first—after all, so many kids go through these things—but they actually can have a lasting effect on you as an adult.

How does it affect us as adults?

The effects of childhood trauma might not be apparent at first glance. Many of us are able to function just fine despite having endured some sort of emotional hardship during our childhood. But what happens when the pressure gets too high? What if something happens that triggers those old feelings of fear or insecurity? Often, this comes out in our relationships with others and ourselves—and can even ruin almost everything you try to build. 

For so many of us, the effects linger long after we’ve grown up and moved out of our childhood homes. An abusive father can leave his daughter feeling unworthy, incapable, and undeserving of love. A mother who constantly tells her daughter that she’s fat can contribute to a lifetime of insecurity and self-criticism. The negative messages we receive as children can stick with us for a lifetime—but they don’t have to. By identifying these messages as lies, we can work to replace them with the truth about who we are and what we’re worth.

Our parents were tasked with teaching us all about life, but often they did not know how to do it themselves. Many parents project their own unmet needs onto their children, or communicate their own frustrations through anger and abuse. As kids, this is confusing and painful for us—we aren’t capable of understanding how to navigate situations that aren’t fair, or why people we love act in ways that hurt us. We feel the pain acutely, but lack the ability to understand its source or how to make sense of it.

Recognizing Trauma.

You can’t escape your past. You can try, you can run as far away as you want and start fresh, but your past will always be right behind you. Your past will follow you to the ends of the earth, and it will cling to you like a barnacle on a ship’s hull. And it will remain there until you face it head-on and deal with it.

But how do you know when trauma has stuck to you like that barnacle? How do you know when your past is holding onto you too tightly?

When we’re children, we don’t have the language or the tools necessary to process what happened to us. We don’t know what happened, we don’t understand why it’s wrong, and we definitely don’t know how to talk about it. So what happens when something traumatic happens to us during our childhood?

We carry that trauma with us for the rest of our lives—until we learn to recognize that trauma, confront it, and work through it.

Recognizing childhood trauma is all about getting in touch with your feelings, connecting with your past, and finding out what’s still bothering you all these years later.

Acknowledgement is the first step.

We all have our traumas, and the scariest thing about them is how they can continue to affect us long after the event or situation has passed. Childhood trauma is especially tough because it’s so formative—it can affect how we see ourselves, how we relate to others and even how we see the world around us. If you’re still feeling the effects of a childhood trauma, it’s important to know that you’re not alone in your struggle. Thankfully, there are many things you can do to help yourself heal from these childhood wounds.

Acknowledge and embrace your feelings

Many of us spend a lot of time and energy trying to ignore our bad feelings. We’ve been taught to push away pain and discomfort in all forms, but ultimately, ignoring our emotions does more harm than good. The first step toward healing is acknowledging that you’re in pain. Make space for your emotions by letting yourself cry when you feel sad or angry—or even just frustrated with yourself for being sad or angry! This may seem counterintuitive, but allowing yourself to feel whatever it is you’re feeling at any given moment will actually decrease its power over you and help restore balance to your life.

Symptoms of childhood trauma.

Maybe you’re not sure whether you were traumatized as a child. If it’s hard to tell, that’s not unusual—especially if it happened a long time ago. But there are some (very common) symptoms of childhood trauma that can make your adult life challenging.

1. The way you relate to other people: Childhood trauma can make it hard to trust other people and form close relationships because, as a child, you had your trust betrayed or your needs went unmet by people who should have taken care of you.

2. Your self-esteem: If your caregivers made you feel unloved or worthless in childhood, that belief can stick with you even into adulthood. You might have trouble believing in yourself and doing things that would help you grow because, deep down, you think you don’t deserve to be happy or successful.

3. Your ability to regulate emotions: When children are traumatized, their ability to regulate their emotions is interrupted—and this can last into adulthood, leaving them overwhelmed and unable to cope with difficult emotions without turning to unhealthy habits like substance abuse or self-harm.

Childhood trauma is a serious issue that affects millions of adults today—and the good news is that there are ways out of it and tools for coping like – Therapy.

All you need to do is take charge.

The trauma of your childhood may not seem like a big deal now. But it can very much still be impacting you in the present day.

You know how you always feel like there’s a giant hole in your soul that you don’t know how to fill? How you can’t understand why you never feel as happy as other people, even when it seems like everything is going great? Or how you find yourself feeling angry at the drop of a hat, and then spiraling off into self-hatred when you realize that even the smallest thing has made you lose your temper?

Well, those feelings of emptiness and anger are very likely rooted in the pain of your childhood. It doesn’t matter if your parents were abusive, neglectful, or just plain uninvolved; if they didn’t give you the emotional support you needed to grow up well-adjusted, that lack of support is going to have a serious impact on your life as an adult—and it may already be causing some serious problems for you.

Your childhood experiences are like a computer program that runs automatically in the background of your mind. And just like with any computer program, these patterns can be updated and changed—but it takes time and effort.

Trauma is not the end. Getting Help is the beginning.

If you’re like most people, you probably think that the trauma of your childhood is something you can put behind you and move on with your life. But according to recent studies, past trauma can influence more than just how you feel about your parents: it can affect almost every area of your life.

Research published in [Medical Journal Name] suggests that childhood trauma can influence everything from a person’s ability to form meaningful relationships to his or her body weight.

Adult survivors of childhood trauma are more likely to struggle with unhealthy habits and addictive behaviors like smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and soda, and eating sugary foods. They often find themselves stuck in cycles of binge-eating and weight loss, or rely on drugs or alcohol to help them “unwind” after a long day at work.

While this correlation does not necessarily mean that people who were injured in some way during their youth are doomed to a life of unhealthy habits and relationship problems, it does suggest that there is a strong link between the two. In other words: if you experienced a traumatic event in your childhood, it may be helpful for you to take an honest look at how it has impacted your life today—and what steps you can take to live the best possible version of yourself now.

Taking care of yourself.

Childhood trauma of all kinds can have lasting effects into adulthood, including serious mental health issues. Parents who have experienced trauma in childhood are also more likely to neglect and abuse their children.

Childhood trauma affects every aspect of a person’s life. Trauma in adults is far too prevalent, and it is impossible to treat unless people are aware that it occurs and understand that it has affected their lives.

Child abuse must end, and one way to stop it is to encourage those who were abused in childhood to seek help.

Parents should be taught not only how to care for the child, but how to recognize the signs of possible abuse on their child as well.

Everyone deserves an opportunity at a healthy future, but this will only occur when people learn more about childhood trauma in adults.

Trauma is not the end for you.

Have you ever thought that maybe the trauma that you have experienced during your childhood can make a huge difference in how you interact with your parents and develop a close relationship with them? If the answer is no, then it means that you have been lucky enough to achieve this, or even if the answer is yes, then the level of impact of these events aren’t as deep as they could be.

It has been seen in studies that many of the people are unable to get along with their parents. This can happen due to any number of reasons, but this one reason that is most common is that some of them have had very bad childhood experiences.

Trauma & Unhealthy Family Dynamics

At first glance, the idea that growing up in a bad family makes you sick might put most people off. But, it turns out that trauma is everywhere — even among those with seemingly perfect childhoods. Being raised by a parent or parents with an addiction like alcoholism or drug abuse can absolutely be traumatic — quite often life-threateningly so. But sometimes trauma just means being raised by a parent who’s depressed, chronically anxious, has bipolar disorder or any of the other mental illnesses out there.

It’s no secret that we’re carrying around some baggage from our families of origin, whether it be “normal” childhood stuff or something more traumatic. It’s not just we who have these challenges, but all of our closest family members as well. In fact, the bulk of families are carrying some sort of unhealthy dynamics and patterns. So what do we do with this? We seek understanding, healing, and change.

Unhealthy family dynamics can create trauma that lasts a lifetime.

Trauma from one’s childhood can be created by unhealthy family dynamics. There are many different types of unhealthy family dynamics and each type can create a different type of trauma.

The most common type of dynamic that creates trauma is when parents fight with one another, or one parent fights with the child. The child becomes afraid, learns to distrust and feels as though they must take sides or risk being punished themselves. If the fighting continues for a long period of time then the child grows up experiencing anxiety and stress because they believe this is normal behavior in all relationships. This is not true, but it takes time to realize this.

Being raised in an environment where there is physical abuse, sexual abuse or verbal abuse, whether it is directed towards the child or other members of the family creates trauma in the child as well. The child feels powerless and helpless to change things, even if they are old enough to remove themselves from the situation.

In an environment where there are constant changes such as moving often or changing schools often creates a sense of instability in a child which can lead to trauma. A child needs consistency and stability in their life to feel grounded and safe.

Living with a mentally ill individual creates trauma. 

Here are some unhealthy family dynamics that can create trauma:

1. Physical abuse. A child who is physically abused by a parent or caregiver is at risk of being emotionally traumatized by the experience. It can be difficult for a child to trust the person who caused them so much physical pain, and they may have trouble trusting in others as a result of their childhood experiences.

2. Sexual abuse. A child who is sexually abused by a parent or caregiver may also be emotionally traumatized by their experience. A child may believe that they are responsible for the abuse and develop feelings of shame, guilt and low self-esteem as a result. The effects of sexual abuse can last throughout an individual’s life, especially if it occurred in early childhood and was not addressed through treatment or therapy.

3. Emotional abuse. Children who are verbally abused by their parents or caregivers may also develop emotional trauma as a result of their experiences. A parent who regularly belittles and criticizes their child can make the child feel worthless and unlovable. A verbally abusive parent may tell their child that they are stupid, ugly or worthless and that nobody will love them or want them because of how horrible they are. 

Patterns and behavior

In the past, therapists and researchers didn’t focus on family dynamics unless they were extreme. Today, we recognize that even subtle, ongoing patterns of communication can have a big effect on children’s development and well-being.

In families where parents are critical or rejecting, children learn to be critical of themselves. They may also assume that other people are mostly judgmental and harsh.

Or a child may grow up in a chaotic family where boundaries are weak, rules are inconsistent and parents’ moods change rapidly. Later, the child may struggle to maintain healthy relationships and handle stress.

Or a parent may be severely depressed, anxious or angry. The child learns from this parent how to regulate his or her own emotions — which may mean responding to situations with depression, anxiety or anger as well. These lessons can have an enduring effect on the child’s life even after the parent’s mood improves.

Relationship with parents for adults!

As an adult, how you relate with your parents can be very different from when you were a child. It may take some getting used to for you, your siblings and your parents.

Now that you’re an adult, your relationship with your parents will be different from when you were a child. You are now independent and have to make decisions on your own. But there are still some things that connect you to your parents, such as:

Your roots – where you came from, who helped shape you into the person you are today

Your heritage – beliefs, customs, traditions and values that have been passed down through generations of your family

The love between parent and child is always there. But as a young adult, it may look different from when you were little. Instead of being told what to do all the time like when you were a kid, they may ask for your advice or opinion more often. They may treat you more like a friend than a child or not.

You may feel like your parents don’t understand you and that they don’t want to talk to you. But keep in mind that your parents love you. They care about what you feel, think, and do. It’s not always easy for them to express their feelings or talk about problems.

If you have a good relationship with your parents, it can be upsetting when they say or do things that make you feel hurt or angry. When this happens, try to take a step back and see things from their point of view. Remember, they may be feeling confused or worried about changes in your life — like a new school or a new group of friends — and may not know how to handle it.

When talking with your parents doesn’t work, try writing down what you’re feeling. This can help you find the right words to say when you talk. You might also want to practice what you’ll say beforehand so it comes out the way you want it to when you’re face-to-face with your parents.

Surviving unhealthy relationship with parents.

It can be hard to admit that you’re in a toxic relationship — even when it’s with your parents. If you grew up with abusive or neglectful parents, this can also be tough territory to navigate. You may still love your parents and understand that they had their reasons for acting the way they did, but you also have to acknowledge that their behavior was damaging.

Surviving an unhealthy relationship with your parents means making choices that will put distance between them and you. While most people would like to have the support of their family, it’s really not likely that in an unhealthy parent-child relationship they will be able to get it.

First, it’s important to recognize that abuse and neglect are not healthy parenting behaviors; they have serious long-term effects on children. As an adult, you’re entitled to make choices about who is part of your life and how much power they have over you.

If a parent is abusive or neglectful, then one of the most important things for their child to do is set boundaries. This means deciding what kind of treatment can be accepted and what kind cannot? It also means being ready to defend those boundaries from violators.

This is much easier said than done, but setting healthy boundaries can help an adult to lead a happier life. 

Before you can heal, you have to admit that something is wrong. It's not easy to accept that your parents are the problem. Parents are supposed to protect, care for and love their children, but sometimes parents are the ones who end up causing the most damage. If you can't get over the past, you'll never be able to move on with your life. It won't be easy, but it's possible.

The family dynamics are an essential concept for the healthy family. However, these insights are not always talked about, making it hard for people to understand it. This article will try to shed some light on how to be part of the solution and not part of the problem by knowing what needs to be addressed in a family, how to do so and why it is so important to do so.

Family dynamics is the study of how people act in a family. You’ll always wonder why you didn’t realize this sooner!

You’re never going to look at your family the same way ever again! Why? Because by simply learning about dynamics of your family, you’ll be able to avoid tensions and conflicts before they arise, improve your relationship with everyone in your family, create stability, as well as thrive to become a better version of yourself and rise above your current circumstances. Let’s get started!

Understanding Family Dynamics

The patterns of interactions among relatives, their responsibilities and relationships, and the numerous circumstances that impact these interactions are referred to as family dynamics. Family members are one of the key sources of relationship security or stress since they rely on each other for emotional, physical, and financial support. Stressful family connections are laden with fights, continual critical input, and onerous obligations, whereas secure and supportive family ties provide love, advice, and care.

Interactions among family members have long-term consequences and influence an individual’s growth and well-being via psychological, behavioural, and physiological pathways. Thus, family dynamics and the quality of family interactions can have a beneficial or bad impact on health.

What influences Family Dynamics?

Some of the many influences on family dynamics include:

  • having a particularly gentle or strict parent the quality of the parents’ relationship

  • the family’s number of children

  • family members’ personalities

  • a missing parent

  • the’mix’ of family members living in the same house

  • Influence from extended family or others, both in terms of quantity and type.

  • a child who is chronically ill or disabled in the family

  • Affair, divorce, trauma, mortality, unemployment, and homelessness have.

  • various concerns such as domestic violence, abuse, alcohol or other drug addiction, mental health problems, or other disabilities

  • family values, culture, and ethnicity, including attitudes about gender roles, parenting methods, and family members’ power or status

  • the nature of family attachments (ie secure, insecure)

  • preceding generations’ dynamics (parents and grandparents families)

  • larger systems—social, economic, and political, as well as poverty

  • all impacted family members.

There is more than one side to the Story

Approaches to family therapy recognise that there are numerous versions of a family’s story. Each member of a family unit has their own viewpoint on the issues that are producing conflict in the family, and each viewpoint is viewed by family therapists as both legitimate and erroneous. ².

There is an endeavour to move beyond ‘either/or’ dichotomies and embrace the concept of ‘both/and.’ This indicates that if two distinct theories or thoughts (or stories) about what happened exist, there is no need to dismiss one, but rather to regard both as two sides of the same coin.

One cannot live without the other, and one provides significance and contrast to the other. Of course, this presupposes the people involved have good intentions; lying and/or manipulative behaviour necessitates a different strategy.

When speaking with a young child about their family dynamics, keep in mind that other family members may have various viewpoints and interpretations of events and behaviours. The meaning given to behaviour is the personal truth for someone, not the true meaning. Each family member’s point of view is valid in its own right.

It is critical to ‘hold’ a variety of possible facts while continuing to investigate patterns and potential paths forward. Understanding the patterns that are sustaining the problem, including communication and language patterns used to describe the situation, enables the worker to challenge interpretations of occurrences. In most cases, family members have an underlying desire to solve family difficulties, even if they don’t know how. Workers can capitalise on this goodwill and use it to effect positive change in the family system.

Family Roles

Family Roles in family dynamics

Within the family structure, people take on various tasks or functions. These positions may be influenced by familial dynamics. People’s actions and interactions in their roles may not be the result of conscious choice. Some of the more common roles that young people play in their families are:

“Peace Keeper”

Unintentionally, a young kid may be acting as a ‘peacekeeper,’ mediating and decreasing tension between opposing parents. Their actions could be a reaction to their underlying fear of family disintegration. This position may encourage children to stay in their family as a youngster rather than progressing to age-appropriate independence.

“The Problem As The Role”

Problems with a young person, such as drug usage, can sometimes play a ‘role’ in the family system, distracting the family from other issues. Minuchin, an early family systems theorist, noted that the child’s role in resolving spousal stress helps to keep the spouse subsystem in “illusory concord.” Spouses may promote a child’s deviant behaviour in order to avoid dealing with their own relationship problems, so keeping the family together.

“Scapegoat”

A troubled adolescent is frequently viewed as the family’s black sheep or bad child, while other children are viewed as the good ones. The young person has become the family’s scapegoat, or the visible’symptom’ of a dysfunctional family system.

The young person may be classified as ‘mentally ill,’ despite the fact that they are behaving in a way that is actually adaptive and allows them to cope and operate within a difficult family environment. The young person can be helped to cope in less harmful ways if they understood the purpose or function of their behaviour in the context of family dynamics.

Characteristics that are assigned :

The way a family treats a child has a big impact on their sense of self-worth and self-identity. A young person’s behaviour may be a reaction to the family’s labelling or ascription of qualities.

In a family where emotional toughness is valued, a young person can be referred to as a’sook.’ This may cause the young person to act in specific ways, such as ‘toughening up’ or destructively managing low self-worth. A worker who can help the young person recognise their strengths and emphasise the worth of their traits will be quite beneficial to them.

Reinforcing Patterns :

Family interactions and behaviours surrounding a ‘problem,’ such as drug usage, may unintentionally promote or encourage problem behaviour. A parent might pay a fine, for example, to avoid a specific bad consequence of a child’s drug usage, such as a police record. This may unintentionally ‘allow’ or encourage young people to use drugs by preventing them from experiencing and learning from the repercussions of their behaviour.

Young people usually respond effectively when parents can agree on a strategy for dealing with a child’s behaviour that includes both warmth and strict boundaries.

Family structural issues :

Families also establish alignments (closer ties) and hierarchies (power positions) that may or may not be beneficial to the young person. Families may create gender alignments, or one parent may align with and have a closer bond with a child than with their partner, which may include sharing secrets with the other parent.

In a family, parents should share power and assist one another in making decisions and disciplining their children appropriately. There are instances when a child, rather than the parents, wields power in the family, such as when there is conflict between them or when the parents are too busy or ineffective in enforcing their boundaries with the child. These erroneous alignments and hierarchies might have a severe impact on a child’s development.

Conclusion

What you learn about your family dynamics can help you understand more about yourself, your relationships with others, and how you should live your life. It can help you better understand why people are the way they are, so that you can avoid the mistakes they made. It can also help you learn to love yourself; to see past all of life’s hardships and strife. Knowing what dynamics exist within your family will help you better know yourself too, which is important in gaining self-confidence because you know now that you can overcome challenges!

If you’ve never heard of family dynamics, well, it’s time to get acquainted! The most important thing to know about family dynamics is that they are the forces that bind and shape your family. They include the roles people take on and the behaviors they exhibit in your family. But wait – don’t run away just yet! It’s not as bad as it sounds. So long as you are aware of what role you’re taking on and embracing it with open arms… then everything will be peachy.

Understanding family dynamics will improve your relationships and help you deal with emotional issues that you’re facing in life. For example, if you’re dealing with a difficult relationship with someone.

The topic of family dynamics is, in our opinion, one that affects all families, but it is not one that many actively address. In other words, a lot more people must think about family dynamics than actually talk about it. This is a shame because, as you have seen, there are real-world implications to the way that families interact with one another. We hope that this overview has inspired you to view your own family in a different light and look forward to the new insights and perspectives you will gain as a result.

Understanding family dynamics will improve your relationships and help you deal with emotional issues that you're facing in life. For example, if you're dealing with a difficult relationship with someone.

When teenagers are in the middle of their teenage years, their relationship with their parents can become an emotional rollercoaster. One minute they are happy with their parents and the next they are frustrated. There are many factors that can lead to this behavior, but one thing that is certain is that it has a negative impact on the relationship between parent and child. This is why it’s important for both parties to work on resolving any problems or issues they have so that this pattern does not continue. They should also be willing to open up so that they can get an understanding of what’s happening in each other’s lives.

While it is important to establish a better relationship with our parents, it can be challenging for both sides. Many times, parents are unsupportive and don’t want to lend an ear to what their child has to say. On the other hand, it can be frustrating for teenagers when they try to discuss something with their parents but get an immediate response of “No”. It is important that we understand that there may be a language barrier in understanding what our parents or children need from us.

With this in mind, here are some tips on how we can have a better relationship with our parents as a teenager :

  • Try asking them questions about themselves and show an interest in their lives
  • Showing kindness through small gestures such as bringing them food or helping them around the house

You are an adolescent. You are not a child anymore. You are asserting yourself in the world. Your thoughts, feelings, opinions matter. But if you are not able to make them heard, if you are unable to assert your needs without feeling guilty for wanting something, your mental health might be suffering. And that’s never good no matter how old you are. One of the keystones in the foundation of our mental wellness is our relationship with our parents and other people who care about us in some way or another. It is important to have a good relationship with our parents especially when we’re teenagers because they teach us how to live with other people in society and help us figure out what kind of person we want to be when we grow up.”

It’s hard for me to talk about my mental health with my parents because I don’t want them to worry. I just think that it’s a teenager thing, and I’ll grow out of it, but this feeling is getting worse every day. I just want them to know that they can come talk to me if they have any concerns or something, but I’m scared of how they might react. In the past, teenagers often felt as though their problems didn’t matter as much as those of adults. But times have changed and now children are being encouraged to take care of themselves from a young age. Young people are experiencing mental health issues more than ever before and so we need to start providing them with the support that they need early on in their lives.

Teenagers are often misunderstood by their parents. They are still kids themselves and need to be cared for, but they are also adults with needs of their own. It can be difficult to know how to deal with this age range. There are many things that parents can do to help their teenage children have a better relationship with them. They can give them space, try not to take out frustrations on the kids, show interest in what the teen is doing, and accept the teen for who they are. These actions will help strengthen the bond between parent and child.

Teens are often caught up on the idea of fitting into society. They want to be liked by their peers, they want to fit into the high school culture and they want to do well in school. This is all valid but it’s not enough for them. We have to remember that teens are also interested in their mental health, mind and mental wellness so it’s important to include this in the equation if you want them to have better relationships with their parents.

If you’re reading this, chances are that you are someone who has had to deal with mental health issues at some point, or know someone who has. Sometimes life is crazy. Our schedules are often jam-packed with work, family obligations, personal interests and maybe even the occasional social event we would like to attend. It can be hard to stop and take a break from the craziness of life and focus on your mental wellness.

Just like other parts of our body, our mind needs time and care in order to function well and recover from stress and anxiety. To help put things into perspective, consider this :

Our physical health is not something we should neglect; it’s equally as important as our mental health. Just as we should exercise regularly for better physical health or eat healthier for better physical health.

It’s no secret that life can be tough. Luckily, there are many ways to take care of your mental health so you can get back to being your best self. You have to have a positive mindset in order to get better. Think about what you want for yourself and what you need in order to feel better.

We’re all human, and life can get really frustrating sometimes. It’s great to have people in your life who are willing to listen. It’s also important to remember that you can always talk to a counselor or therapist if you need help sorting through things.

With the rise of mental health awareness, more people are becoming aware of the importance of mental wellness and care for their minds and bodies. But how do we actually do it?

Mental wellness is a process that involves taking care of your physical, mental, social or spiritual needs in order to promote positive well-being and a sense of purpose.

It is not a coincidence that more and more people are suffering from mental health issues. We live in a world that is constantly on the verge of chaos. Even when things seem to be going smoothly, there is still a sense of unease.

One way of dealing with stress and anxiety is to look for counseling or therapy sessions. They can be done either online or offline depending on the preference and time availability.

The term “mental health” can refer to both people’s emotional well-being (sometimes called mental wellness) and their mental illnesses as diagnosed by a health professional. There is no clear-cut dividing line between the two, but there are some general differences. Emotional well-being includes factors such as happiness, anxiety, depression, and stress. Mental illnesses are more serious conditions that may affect daily life and relationships with other people.

Mental health care describes a broad range of treatments for mental illness that a person may experience at some point in life. This includes traditional forms of talk therapy but can also include medication or various therapies that use different approaches e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy.

It is important to take care of your mental health. The best way to do this is by talking to a therapist or counselor. They will help you see things in a different light and be able to change the way you view things. Talking about your feelings and thoughts with someone else and giving them the chance to understand you can be very therapeutic and healing. Taking care of your mental health is a necessary part of being a human being.

It can be difficult to take care of your mental wellness because there is so much going on in the world. But it’s important to remember that you are not alone. Mental health is a topic that affects everyone and every day there are people fighting the same battles as you. You can find comfort knowing that you’re not dealing with this alone. All you have to do is reach out for help, and counseling and therapy can help with that too.

Introverts by day, Extroverts by night : How we grow as introverts and extroverts.

When it comes to introverts and extroverts, most people think that introverts are shy and extroverts are outgoing. The reality is that there are many different types of introverts and extroverts in the world.

With the help of counseling, introverted people can explore their confusions in life and figure out what is best for them.

Introverts by day, Extroverts by night.

Introversion is not shyness; it’s simply someone who gains strength from being alone or with close friends—it does not mean they don’t like interacting with others at all. External events do not make an introvert feel stressed or panicked they just require more downtime before they can recharge their batteries.

Some people are naturally more extroverted than others. Extroverts enjoy being the center of attention and they tend to be more assertive than introverts because they need to be heard. Introverts, on the other hand, prefer to stay in the background and let their ideas flow uninterrupted.

There are both types of people who have to balance their lives, and the article focuses on how they should do so. It starts by looking at what makes each type of person different: introverts like to recharge by spending time alone, while extroverts need to spend time socializing and meeting new people

The article discusses introversion versus extroversion in relation to counseling, mental health, life skills, and people skills. It is written for both professionals working with clients in the mental health industry as well as for any other person seeking self-knowledge.

It is important to understand that it is not a case of introverts being better than extroverts or vice versa. It is a case of introverts and extroverts leveraging their strengths to the best of their ability. Extroverts have a knack for socializing and they can dominate conversations with ease. Introverts, on the other hand, are great observers and listeners. They may not be good at initiating conversations but they are great at sustaining them.

This leads to a conflict in how we grow as introverted and extroverted people. Counselors should use this understanding to help both parties learn how to work together in order for them to thrive in their personal lives as well as the workplace.

A lot of people struggle to go out and be social, but our brains are wired differently. We have to learn how to manage our time so that we can do the things we love.

While many people are extroverted by nature, there are still some who are introverted. But this doesn’t mean that they don’t need any help with their self-esteem or mental health. It’s actually important to remember that introverts need counseling too because it’s not always easy for them to express themselves through words or actions.

The author argues that both introverts and extroverts have a place in the workplace, but different roles. Introverts make great counselors because they listen well to others, while extroverts are better suited for sales because they are good at talking to people. 

Extroverts gain energy by being around people, while introverts shy away from social interactions. These two types of people are very different but they also share many similarities too.

We all need to find ways to balance our lives as both extroverts and introverts. Introverts need to find time alone and extroverts should make time for solitude in order to grow in a healthy way.

This is a story of an introvert who found herself in a world that belongs to extroverts. She found the strength to break the mold and live her own life.

The author explains why introverts cannot conform to extroverted society. They need the ability to slow down and recharge their batteries – be alone for short periods of time then re-engage with people after a while. Introverts have a deep inner world, which is more important than any outer world that contains extroverts.

If you’re the type of person who is always looking for conversation, who can’t go more than a few moments without checking your phone, and who has trouble finding time to be alone with your thoughts, then this article might not be for you.

But if you’re an introvert by day and an extrovert by night, this article is exactly what you need. It’s for people like me: people with a split personality and two different sets of values.

It’s for people like me: introverts by day and extroverts by night.

There is a common misconception that introverts and extroverts are two sides of the same coin – introverts only need to “turn on” their extroversion and vice versa. However, being an extrovert or an introvert is not just about how we act in different social situations. It is about how our brains work in general.

Different brains have different needs, so it is important to understand what kind of brain you have before you start thinking about how to change it.

Parents who send their introverted kids into the world may think that they’re giving them a life-long advantage over extroverts. But as we grow, we tend to reverse our personalities and become more extroverted than we’re introverted.

The reason for this is that as we age, our brain is changing and not just in size! A recent study has found that the brain’s connections are different in children than they are in adults, and those changes can lead to us becoming more extroverts as adults.

Mental health professionals recommend counseling as a way to help with these shifts in personality throughout life.
