Girls along with Depressive disorder as well as Beauty and The Beast.
Could be the fight to reach the top bringing women for their knees? Gets the fairer sex really become the weaker sex? Are we depressed or are we only experiencing what men have always known concerning pressure, but because we’re women we’re a push over for analysis ultimately ending in medication that calms “what ails us”? We must remember that we remain surviving in a predominately male operated society. Men have the natural instinct to wish to “fix it” when anything they perceive as a problem arises. If our a reaction to a problem isn’t to handle it in the strict male fashion, we must be falling apart and have to be fixed by medication, counseling, or both. You’re right now asking what do men and their view of our reactions to problems have regarding us being depressed. Well, I’ll tell you.
Women aren’t men. Regardless of how short you cut your own hair, Madam President, (sarcasm intended) or the fact that you wear pants will ever cause you to a man. But each day we’re told that getting the feelings and reactions associated with women is wrong. There are a few popular theories going around that say women are making men gay by expecting them to have emotions which can be prevalent to women, but these same men will deny that telling women to subdue their emotions, or natural reactions, can have any mental influence on them.
Women are attempting to squeeze into a culture built and operated by men. We’ve certain attitudes about how things should be. For a long time we have been told we’re wrong and to do something positive about it. Just what exactly do we do? We put it in its place. Somewhere deep inside our minds where we don’t dare go. Beauty and the beast rose Unsure what to do with this unnatural act, our hearts and minds are bogged down. There’s no where for it to go. It has no outlet. That is labeled depression.
I suppose this sounds like a “let’s get men” attack, however it isn’t meant to have a negative connotation to it. It is simply the natural order of things. Women are smart humans and will figure out how to adapt in this harsher world in order to survive and 1 day to thrive again. I am not saying that we won’t bring our own type of problem solving to the dilemma, eventually. But for the present time we must find a method of coping. Fortunately society has given us a way out by providing the monster a title, depression. And because it features a socially acceptable name, it’s okay to have this reaction called depression. I don’t think so!
Women must start to realize that just because we may not be able to have it fine now (emphasis on the may) does not make us any less “of a man” then our hairy counterparts. The female sector must never stop fighting for what is rightfully theirs in equal pay and other rights. But at the same time, we must stop beating ourselves up over the fact that we haven’t arrived yet in the eyes of a culture that doesn’t know any benefit (at least for the moment) then to react in the status quo fashion.
Females will always be overachievers. You know our labels: perfect wife, great cook, and super mom. And now, let’s place the added burden of breadwinner to your long listing of “must dos” ;.Unfortunately as an overachiever means that we need certainly to “out do” to be called successful. And we will “out do”, won’t we? What will we get if we aren’t at the top? We get to manage that beast that passes the name of depression. I am the world’s worst because of this one. In everything I do I should be the award winner, the highest paid, the fastest runner, whatever. Discuss major self-appointed stresses! But seriously, does this not sound familiar to you?
But we must find a method to shrug off a number of the anxiety and self-appointed stress. Slay the beast by means apart from anger or mood altering antidepressants. Why must I now add anger to your problems of emotional out cries? Now a lot more than ever, women are venting their frustration through the usage of anger. Road rage by women! Ever seen that certain? Ever been on the receiving end of one of those fingers? I am not coming near suggesting that women own this 1 exclusively or whilst a higher degree than men. But ask your mom how many times she was cut off, cussed out, and all those other glamorous actions we have come to see often, being initiated with a female when she was young. Perhaps you’d use the explanation of more female drivers. Could possibly be, but doubt it. We’re programming ourselves to push, push, and push to obtain ahead. Our natural instinct is to react emotionally and unfortunately this really is being released as anger in lots of situations.
The women I talked with stated they truly thought that women are angrier than these were in the past. The media has put so much pressure on us to be thinner, always look our best, and many times with unreasonable expectations to what is named excepted. Anorexia are at an all time high among women. Medical issues aren’t in the centre of the attack, (no pun intended) on women to be skinny. You’re unattractive and not appropriate for a lifetime career, marrying, or some other number of outside the home social activities. When you have any extra weight on you, you had better do something positive about it. But once you can’t reach, for just one reason or another, these unreasonable goals, you become depressed.
Career goals, physical appearance, and respect are but a few of the reasons women become depressed. My main concern is for women to locate a healthier, more positive way to handle these socially inflicted stresses then becoming depressed, angry, and ultimately becoming hooked on antidepressants. We all know that historically men purchased alcohol as a way to cope. We see how that faired, don’t we? Let’s not follow their lead but study from their mistakes. I’ll let you in on a little secret in the event that you don’t tell men. We’re actually stronger than they are, as a whole. Men might find this funny and hard to prove, but I am 51 and have experienced my share of tragedy. I’ve watched lots of men drop the tubes when life smacks them down a few times but at the same time have experienced many women still standing after life has punched them in the stomach many times. Don’t let them inform you that since they’re willing to attend war and die for a great cause makes them the stronger sex, either. There ain’t no such thing as a great war as grounds to die. Yes, I realize that men start these wars, however you can’t use that against them. Crazy men are the ones starting wars. I recently don’t think they need to use their patriotic duty as a cause to say they are stronger, but if you question them why they think they are stronger this appears to be their answer. That’s all I’m saying.
I was on antidepressants for 5 years and I smoke 1 ½ packs of cigarettes a day. I can say I was in it because I, not my doctors, took myself off them. I wish to handle life through my own thoughts and strengths. When it comes to cigarettes, I’ve currently cut right out ½ pack with the hope of quitting. Neither one of these actions has been easy. I will still “slap you into tomorrow” if I am aggravated enough, so I began my own home based business to help keep me calmer during my transition. Whatever it takes. But my point is that I are becoming conscious that I am stronger then this and want to be me, just me, and all the good or bad that comes with it.
Seriously ladies, execute a self-inventory. Are your reactions to situations over the top or are you currently coping in a positive manner? Look closely at how you react and don’t excuse it if it’s nearly lady like. It is negative for your health or your own personal self-image. When you screamed and yelled at that driver, made it happen can you a bit of good? Bet not. Bet your blood pressure experienced the roof. Why you think more women are dying from heart attack and stroke then men are actually? Once we also have in the past, we must produce a constructive way to prevent “the madness” ;.Our society is mean to each other. You view it and you realize it’s true. We’re on a way to self-destruction. Have a deep breath, exercise more, try some natural products, be spiritually involved, or go slower in your climb to the top, whatever it takes. Decrease and smell the roses! You certainly can do it if you’ll just put a little effort into it. We’re overachievers but we’re also over comers, do it now with all which makes you a female!
