    So.. Behavioral Nueroscience

    So, ever since I was little I wanted to do some job that interested me and I made a lot of money. I like nueropsychology. First, I like knowing how people think. Why they did this or that.. So I did my research. A few Google searches later and I come across behavioral...

    I have always been somewhat intrigued by the

    human mind, but my real interest started when I got severely depressed among other things and wanted to find out what the hell was wrong with me. It is a pretty common reason, really. I had a psych professor that at the end of the year told us that all of it is BS because of the...

    "We must commit to learning from our mistakes

    instead of agonizing over them, or we're destined to repeat our errors in the future. When you temporarily run aground, remember that there are no failures in life. There are only results."

    There is nothing that will take the pain away,

    but eventually you will find a way to live with it, there will be nightmares and everyday that you wake up it will be the first thing on your mind until one day it will be the second thing

    Psychology is really flawed.

    It gives people excuses to vilify each other and themselves, it tries to label and put boxes around everyone and everything. It gives us excuses to sit still, or to be a jerk to people. But it also gives us tools for moving forward, and helping people. It's flawed - but I also...

    Have you ever woken up

    and just knew it was going to be a bad day? Sure enough, you stub your toe, people at work seem to be in a bad mood, and negative things just seem to happen. If so, you were likely experiencing a self-fulfilling prophecy. A self-fulfilling prophecy is when a person unknowingly...

    I've always liked psychology

    because it's really only a bunch of theories and observations that people came up with and are trying to make sense of human behavior.

    I do so much work to keep my depression

    and anxiety at bay. That I end up having anxiety about getting all the work done. Then feel depressed about not having enough time to do anything else. Anyone else feel like this or have any suggestions. This is becoming very redundant.

    When my psychologist suggested I write my

    process down I don't suppose she thought I might post it :-) I preface this piece because to me this process feels weird and just a little nuts. And the only reason I'm really ok with this vivid internal space, even though it's has been a refuge and comfort for me since its...

    So I posted this on another group but: So have

    you ever heard of Sylvia Plath? She wrote 'the bell jar' (1963) 'Ariel' (1966), she wrote others too but those were her most successful pieces. She was born in 1932, and died in 1963. She would have been considered perfectly normal until she was 8 years old when her father died...

    The mind is a fascinating thing,

    and when you get deep into the science of it, it basically creates our entire reality, from the metaphysical to even the physical. I've always had an interest in it and I love delving into the intricacies of it, although I have been giving it a break lately.

    You know what's ironic?

    We have the best brains of all animal species on earth, yet we're so easily tricked. Psychology is used all around us. Like pricing something 99,99 instead of 100 to make it feel cheaper, or grocery stores putting bread and cheese so far apart, so you have to traverse the whole...

    Mostly the journey into the deep subconscious

    One day when I was at work.

    I started to think of the many people who loved me and genuinely enjoyed my company and that at least ONE person in the WORLD wished they could be with me RIGHT NOW (even if I did not know who:). Then instantly I realized how LUCKY I am to ALWAYS be stuck with ME.
