"Thoughts can be our best friends and our worst enemies. When they make us feel the entire world is against us, every perception, every encounter, and the world’s very existence become sources of torment.

"The determinants of happiness can be sought at two levels: external conditions and internal processes.

If we come to grips with the internal processes that govern them, we may be able to teach people how to take pleasure in living." - Ruut Veenhoven

[Quote No.40895] Need Area: Fun > General
"[The belief in their ability to freely chose and control their lives and the life-skills to do that are necessary for happy, confident, productive lives! When that is not the case people can become ineffective, depressed and mentally ill. Sometimes they believe they cannot even when they can. This is called learned helplessness.] Learned helplessness, as a technical term in animal psychology and related human psychology, means a condition of a human person or an animal in which it has learned to behave helplessly, even when the opportunity is restored for it to help itself by avoiding an unpleasant or harmful circumstance to which it has been subjected. Learned helplessness theory is the view that clinical depression and related mental illnesses may result from a perceived absence of control over the outcome of a situation. [Learned helplessness has also been considered a contributing factor in problems with academic achievement, disempowerment, self-esteem, aging, suicide, poverty, business failure, crime, domestic violence, poor parenting, discrimination, (non-meritocracy:) crony capitalism and political statism – voters calling for big paternal government interference in free markets, pessimism, hopelessness, drug abuse and alcoholism.]... In the learned helplessness experiment an animal is repeatedly hurt by an adverse stimulus which it cannot escape. Eventually the animal will stop trying to avoid the pain and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Finally, when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness prevents any action. The only coping mechanism the animal uses is to be stoical and put up with the discomfort, not expending energy getting worked up about the adverse stimulus... Later research discovered that the original theory of learned helplessness failed to account for people's varying reactions to situations that can cause learned helplessness. Learned helplessness sometimes remains specific to one situation, but at other times generalizes across situations. An individual's attributional style or explanatory style was the key to understanding why people responded differently to adverse events. Although a group of people may experience the same or similar negative events, how each person privately interprets or explains the event will affect the likelihood of acquiring learned helplessness and subsequent depression. People with pessimistic explanatory style — which sees negative events as permanent (‘it will never change’), personal (‘it's my fault’), and pervasive (‘I can't do anything correctly’) — are most likely to suffer from learned helplessness and depression. Cognitive behavioral therapy, heavily endorsed by [Martin] Seligman, can often help people to learn more realistic explanatory styles, and can help ease depression. Bernard Weiner's attribution theory (1979, 1985, 1986) concerns the way that people attribute a cause or explanation to an unpleasant event. Attribution theory includes the dimensions of globality/specificity, stability/instability, and internality/externality. A global attribution occurs when the individual believes that the cause of negative events is consistent across different contexts. A specific attribution occurs when the individual believes that the cause of a negative event is unique to a particular situation. A stable attribution occurs when the individual believes the cause to be consistent across time. Unstable attribution occurs when the individual thinks that the cause is specific to one point in time. An external attribution assigns causality to situational or external factors, while an internal attribution assigns causality to factors within the person… There are several aspects of human helplessness that have no counterpart among other animals. One of the most intriguing aspects is ‘vicarious learning (or modelling)’: that people can learn to be helpless through observing another person encountering uncontrollable events. Apart from the shared depression symptoms between human and other animals such as passivity, introjected hostility, weight loss, appetite loss, social and sexual deficits, some of the diagnostic symptoms of learned helplessness — including depressed mood, feelings of worthlessness, and suicidal ideation — can be found and observed in human beings but not necessarily in animals. In animal models, control over stress conveys resilience to future uncontrolled stressors and induces changes in the function of specific neurons within the prefrontal cortex." - wikipedia.org

[Quote No.40900] Need Area: Fun > General
"[Habitual ways of seeing the world, which are an important part of successful life-skills, make an enormous difference to how people experience the very same circumstances. For example:] Experiment with experiencing the same situation through the eyes of optimism [gratitude things are not worse, satisfaction in what’s been achieved already and positive anticipation for the future] and pessimism [bitterness things are not better, dissatisfaction in what’s been achieved already and negative anticipation for the future]. Take, for example, an airplane voyage [and experience it pessimistically]: Imagine that you are on a long airplane trip en route to a strange city to begin a new job. Suddenly the airplane encounters turbulence. You can see the plane’s wings tilting up and down and you visualize the ensuing disaster. Once the turbulence settles down, you realize your seat is too small. You can’t find a comfortable position, and your mind is filled with complaints about the state of airplane travel. You are annoyed that the air hostess is taking forever to bring your drink. When you think ahead to your new job, you feel certain that the people you will meet won’t like or appreciate you. They will ignore your expertise, keep you away from the most interesting projects, and might even cheat you. You are sure that this trip will be a catastrophe. Why did you ever think you could handle it? You are filled with dread. Experience the gloomy state of mind such thoughts create. Then experiment with another way to experience the same situation [optimistically]: When the plane encounters turbulence, you know that it is part of the journey [are grateful the plane is not smaller and the turbulence worse and are thankful for the expertise of the designers, builders, mechanics and pilots] and vividly feel that every instant that passes by is precious. As the turbulence calms down, you feel grateful and hope that you can use the rest of your life constructively. Although your seat is not particularly comfortable, you [are grateful that you have a seat at all and] find positions that relieve the stiffness of your back and legs. You appreciate how cheerful and helpful the air hostess is even though she is busy and has to stand up throughout most of the flight. You are excited by the adventures that await you. You imagine that the people there will be interesting and productive and that you will be given many new opportunities. You are convinced that your activities will flourish and that you have the inner resources to overcome any obstacles that may arise. Experience this buoyant state of mind that is turned to the positive. Appreciate the difference between these two states of mind and understand how they came about simply through the workings of your mind [learned, habitual perspective life-skills] although the outer situation remained the same." - Matthieu Ricard
