That's one of the most insensitive and inaccurate study ever. Can you cite the source?
I hope people don't tell about this study to people who have lost a loved one.
A couple next door lost their 5yr old boy(their only kid) last year. I dont want them to cry or feel devastated. Telling them that 12 minutes after the death of their son, their grief was self inflicted and unnecessary is a total bs.
The five stages of grief takes some time to unfold.
but you wont tell them to stop crying after 12 mins right?
So it means I'm masochist and into self-harm
According to that study, I seem to be into self harm. :P
I have to agree blow everything up and start again.
Really...Now that is interesting...
Thank you for sharing this! I struggle with anxiety and depression am very aware of moments when things are smooth sailing and moments when my emotions get the best of me. I am looking for more tools on how to cope with my heavy emotions, and knowing that they only last 12 minutes is a relief! My therapist has also said that an emotion, like anxiety, only lasts up to 20 minutes and the only reason it lasts longer is because we add to the emotion with our thoughts and reactions. Its a relief to know that I can do something to help my anxiety and depression instead of worry about it never getting better. Thanks!!
Things like depression, bipolar, anxiety and grief are not self inflicted. This study is so dumb and I really hope this doesn't get spread around, people with things like depression will start blaming themselves and feel even worse.
