I created this page on certain issues that I personally have gone through and also I have close friends that have also seen the ugly side of life. There has been a few factors mentioned here that has altered and scared my life. It has taken me into another world of hurt, confusion and loneliness. I’m one of many voices heard…
Domestic Violence: on average 20 men and women are physically abused per minute in the US by an inmate partner daily. Domestic violence comes in many forms, from physical, verbal, mental, and sexual. Often times people think that physical abuse is the only form of domestic violence.
Bullying: It affects a wide range of individuals. It can start at home, can start as young as daycare age children. There are reports of bullying all through the school aged children and it continues into adulthood. Bullying can be in the workplace, online, in the community, even in our nursing homes. Unfortunately bullying is one form of abuse that is rarely reported due to the fear of retaliation. Bullying can cause many mental health issues to develop or intensify.
Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in individuals aged 10-34 in the US, let that sink in, 1 in 20 individuals experience suicidal thoughts at one time in their lives.
Jealousy: It’s a common misconception that jealousy is a sign of love.Jealousy can be a major relationship problem—a survey of marital therapists reported that romantic jealousy was a serious problem for a third of their clients. I hope to dispel the myth that jealousy is a sign of love. But if it’s not, then what really motivates jealous responses?
Research has linked several traits to greater jealousy:
Neuroticism: a general tendency to be moody, anxious, and emotionally unstable.
Feelings of insecurity and possessiveness.
Dependence on your partner: Even asking people to imagine that they don’t have good alternative partners leads to more negative reactions to hypothetical jealousy-inducing scenarios.
Feelings of inadequacy in your relationship: Generally fearing that you’re not good enough for your partner.
An anxious attachment style: A chronic orientation toward romantic relationships that involves fear that your partner will leave you or won’t love you enough. Research has shown that temporarily causing people to feel more securely attached, by asking them to think about receiving support from a loved one, makes them react less severely to a hypothetical jealousy-inducing situation.
All of these factors that relate to jealousy are about the insecurities of the jealous people, not about the love they have for their partner.
There are many forms of abuse, jealousy, bullying and causes for suicide no one person’s experience is the same.
