Providing assistance to people is a challenging task and requires training. The difficulty in doing this is obvious. Otherwise, mental health professionals would not be in such high demand. The fact that mental health experts know how to provide appropriate support highlights that there are proven ways to help individuals who are struggling.
Possible Approaches to Providing Support
When someone asks for help, they may get different responses. Generally, there are three types of responses to people seeking help.
At first, toxic people may suggest that you put up with uncomfortable situations and avoid making changes in your life. Also, they can make you feel like it’s your fault and you have to stay where you are. Your success and improvement will only remind them of their own failures, and they may fail to see your positive messages as something they can accomplish.
Secondly, a mean person can give general advice like “stay positive” or pretend to care. These people will not harm you, but they may not have the ability to help you because they are mainly focused on their own problems. They believe that it would be a waste of time for them to take the time to listen.
Finally, individuals who are informed about traumatic experiences and have perhaps been victims of similar situations in the past will say the magic words “I am here for you.” Additionally, they will encourage you to express your feelings and let go of anger, stress, and frustration without judging you. The openness displayed by these individuals instills hope and confidence that support is available.
importance of responsibility
During childhood our significant “others”, such as family or caregivers, are responsible to a degree for our current experiences in the world. It is important to stress the importance of taking responsibility in order to avoid making further mistakes. People who are unwilling to take full responsibility for their actions may blame those who caused the trauma for any unhappiness in their present life. While this can be a relief to an extent, as it does not allow us to blame ourselves, it also deprives us of the possibility of taking control of our lives and being better people.
We should also consider the impact of our actions on others besides ourselves. As adults, people hold us responsible for our situation and our actions. For example, a child who has experienced unpleasant situations may have suffered a great deal of trauma and cannot be held responsible for their reactions at the time. However, this trauma can lead to a series of inexplicable actions in the future that may be difficult for others to understand unless they are aware of the person’s traumatic background. Suppose the child who is now an adult repeats the same behavior towards his children. Who is to blame now? Parents or Grandparents? Today’s society answers that question by saying that parents are responsible for the behavior they decide. The same concept can apply to cases where people have to go to court. According to the law, a person who has acted illegally will be held responsible for his actions. The court will not deal with the environment that influenced this person in the first place.
People who realize that they have become abusers rather than victims are more likely to wake up and realize that they are in control. If they are capable of doing the worst, they are probably capable of achieving the best. Therefore, adopting a responsible attitude that benefits us and protects others is the wisest thing to do. According to psychology, we are not responsible for what we feel but what we do. However, what we do is closely related to how we feel. Therefore, getting in touch with your inner self is essential to understanding yourself and controlling your reactions.
