I Love Psychology

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 12,123 People

    Psychology has always interested me.

    It all started when I realized I had ADD. I wonder why does my brain not like me concentrate on things, not let me sit still or fidget, or speak before I think. I, also, always wondered why I am so overly laid back on things, timid, and care more about other than my own self...

    but the mind is what I'm interested in. Mind over matter. You can physically change things with your mind. You can make things go away and appear with in it. Most people even create their own problems because they can not handle the power of their own mind. I want to be able to...

    So Fascinating

    I've had a passion for psychology since I was 11. I stumbled across a psychology website one day and my mind was just blown at how fascinating it is. The human mind is so unlike the body, that it can't be directly observed. It's so mysterious. It's scary sometimes, but it's...

    Are you a "Fully Functioning Person"?

    On my path to self-actualization studying psychology has been a great guide. Carl Rogers believed that every person could achieve their goals wishes, and desires in life. When they did so self-actualization took place. "For Rogers (1961) people who are able be self-actualize...

    Instead of getting even

    or teaching someone a lesson when they do you wrong, consider teaching yourself a lesson instead. Revenge keeps you psychically connected to another in a negative way. Release yourself through the liberating act of forgiveness, and learn a truly valuable spiritual lesson.
