The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

My parents think that I don't care about their feelings but they don't know how much I love them I daily think about what they want ,cry feeling helpless as my heart do not give permission me to do this. I do not have any option . I always keep praying that god please give me natural death . While walking on roads I wish some vehicle hit me to death.

Listen lybrate-user, people do face such tough situation in life and at times person needs to be practical more than emotional. You sure love your parents and can sacrifice the guy for him. Or move on with the guy and leave your parents i. E what they will say slowly and gradually they will adjust. Either ways things will be fine. Its your call ending life is not an option. God has given you life you should be thankful and make the most of it. Learnt o deal with pressure and stress take out the positives. Consult with me for coounseling.

Steps to Keeping Your Cool and Saving Your Relationships - Tips by Relationship Counselor Shivani Misri Sadhoo

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
Steps to Keeping Your Cool and Saving Your Relationships - Tips by Relationship Counselor Shivani Misri Sadhoo
You may image or you might already have experienced this situation - one unfortunate day your best friend or co-worker or your partner tell you something insulting, hurts you, screams at you and you forget that moment that they might be suffering from a momentary mood swing or they might have miss-understood you and YOU DON’T WAIT and insult them back, scream back at them – risking, weakening or even destroying your relationships.

Relationship counsellor Shivani Sadhoo suggests that when we are under anger attack from our loved ones, the first instinct that works for us is – either to fight back immediately or getting shocked or surprised how to react – these two reactions generally make the situation worse.

The right thing one should practice is MINDFULNESS. That is building the ability to judge and understand the crisis situation first and then react accordingly. Here are some simple steps to improve your interpersonal skills and to save your valuable relationships in the time of a fight.

Identify your impulse that precedes your anger response.

When you get angry the moment prior reacting to our anger our body shows some impulse, i.e. sensation that rises up through our body prior launching anger reaction—these impulses are like - rapid heartbeat, feeling heat in your ears , raising your voice, clenching your jaw (different people have different kind of impulses). When you can pick up on these warning signs, you can give yourself time to make a deliberate choice. At that moment, you are practicing anger management.

Control the impulse.

The goal is to keep your body and mind in control if you're quick to fight, give yourself a time-out: shift your focus on your body instead. Concentrate on feeling the heat beneath you, then take long deep breaths from your diaphragm; try inhaling through your nose on a count of two, holding till six and exhaling through your mouth on seven.

Accept extreme anger is wrong

Many of us believe the expression of anger is a sign of strength or an instrument of self-defence. It is true to some extent BUT when anger gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to all kind of problems —problems at work, in our personal relationships, worsens our BP & heart condition and in the overall quality of your life. It can make you feel as though you are at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. Remember that unless we accept extreme anger is BAD no matter what we practice or think, we cannot improve ourselves and lead a healthy and happy life.

Don't feel stressed its time of more concentration and more attentiveness. Keep your self calm by doing some thing you want to do or you love to do. Otherwise keep your mind stress free by doing nothing for a day or two. Do some breathing or relaxation exercise and think yourself fresh and energetic and stress free too. It will work.

I am feeling very depressed about my papers which I finished one day ago. Help me.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I am feeling very depressed about my papers which I finished one day ago. Help me.
Dear lybrate user, the problem from which you are suffering is common to every student. But being depressed has nothing with the result. You have already completed your paper yesterday. You have answered your best on the scheduled time of exam. You have done your best. The rest is beyond your reach. The examiner will check your papers & give you marks. You cannot do anything about that by thinking the about the past days. Make yourself happy by thinking that you have answered your best. The more you think about your papers the more will you be depressed but it won't change a slightest thing in the process of the checking of your papers. So, enjoy the vacation till you again indulge yourself in studies after your result.

Dear lybrate-useri understand your problem very well. You are suffering from home sickness and anxiety in adjusting to new environment. You need to relax. Your decreased sex drive is related to your anxiety. Your medicine nexito is a very good med 4 your problem but it will take 4 weeks for its effect to show up. Once its effect begins you will be treated of your symptoms. Meanwhile stop thinking a lot and try 2 relax as much as posdible.

You can try natural depression control or if it is not possible need to take antidepressants. 5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

Sir what are the problems we should face if we suddenly stop smoking? Also how to avoid smoking?

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, you are just 20. You will not face any withdrawal symptoms or health consequences on suddenly leaving smoking. Quitting addictive substances is not an easytask. You can go for deaddiction therapy. But according to me, the best method would be, you quit the habbit now itself. Sustain the quitting with the help of self motivation. I suggest counseling and psychotherapy. Please consult a psychologist. Take care.

Most adults don't get better on their own and may require some type of treatment. The goal of phobia treatment is to reduce your anxiety and fear and to help you better manage your reactions to the object or situation that causes them. Professional treatment can help you overcome your phobia or manage it effectively so you don't become a prisoner to your fears. Talking with a trained mental health professional can help you deal with your phobias. Several types of psychotherapy may be effective. Desensitisation or exposure therapy--focuses on changing your response to the object or situation that you fear and may be helpful for phobias. Gradual, repeated exposure to the cause of your phobia may help you learn to conquer your anxiety. For example, if you're afraid of elevators, your therapy may progress from simply thinking about getting into an elevator, to looking at pictures of elevators, to going near an elevator, to stepping into an elevator. Next, you may take a one-floor ride, then ride several floors and then ride in a crowded elevator. Cognitive behavioural therapy--involves exposure combined with other techniques to learn ways to view and cope with the feared object or situation differently. You learn alternative beliefs about your fears and the impact they have on your life. There's special emphasis on learning to develop a sense of mastery and control of your thoughts and feelings. Take care.

I have finished my exams just 2 days before but I am having tensions of my results.
There is nothing you can do about the results except to wait and accept the outcome. If you have written well, you can expect good results. Do not waste time and energy and your mood on that eventuality but go ahead and occupy yourself with the next important thing to do to use your vacation time usefully. Otherwise, you will spoil your whole vacation worrying uselessly about something you can do nothing about, now.

Night falls are physiological at males of your age if they occur once in a while, say once once in 15-20 days. This usually occurs due to overflow incontinence during sleep. Night falls do not cause any adverse effects on the body. However if you have frequent night falls and feel like having pe too then you should certainly contact a psychiatrist for treatment. Treatment includes a short course of medications and practicing some exercises that help in controlling night emissions and premature ejaculations.

Hi doc I am in long distance relationship for 1 year & I had gf , she loves me no doubt but what I find after 5-6 month she had a habit of flirting back to other guys. I told her about this many times , she promised me not to repeat again but things get repeated (she told me also that she feel good when some strangers give importance ) Now due to this I don't concentrate on my job also with soo many ideas on my mind. (Sometime I used to think It was better to live life as a single ) This incident make me less attracted towards her & some time I feel I should have hookups outside this relationship. & I am scared due to this frustration I might cheat on her which I don't wanted to do. Looking forward for some tremendous help from you people.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That she has admitted to flirting and has gone back on her promises to stay faithful are not good signs. She has also admitted to wanting attention and that she gravitates towards people who give her importance is concerning in the long run. It is very difficult to keep tabs on someone in a long-distance relationship. Trust is a very important factor in relationships anyway and this must be respected and honored. So all in all, it sounds like this relationship is going the wrong way and I am afraid that you may not be able to rely on her. But to make a decision on the basis of this one person to stay single is pushing it too far. Never let a person do that to you. Besides, you have not even met her and I suspect that you have a tendency to go overboard in relationships for whatever reason. This is a vulnerable trait in you and needs to be worked upon with a counselor. Also, you do not fight fire with fire i. E. By trying to compete with her infidelity you are making matters worse. Either you wait and see how she is when you meet her or call it quits and move on with your life. The signs are not good no doubt but it is not so bad that you need to give up on your life and its future for such an individual.

Sadnes and happines is part of life.Death of parents and that too at a early age is a real shoking in everbodys life but Mukta I know tht it is an irrepairable los for you,but life must go on.Moreover your father must have great dreams for you.Try fulfilling those dreams if you are a real daughter of your father and if you want to make that soul happy ,whereeever he is.You should lead rom the front so that your mother dont feel this loss as she i the one who is the most to suffer as you will be buy in your respective life one day.So put aside thiss emotional element and be brave,as this world is for brave people who have nitched their own way and people discard,reject and avoid losers and emotionally weak people.So if you want to make your father happy and proud,adopt the way that he ha told you and force all your energy in fulfilling your dreams so that one day your mother is proud of you and so does your father .

You don't need meds to overcome your anger. Through counselling you can develop self awareness and why you get angry. You can learn to express your anger in safer ways and also channelise anger into activities that are productive. Yoga, meditation, exercising will help you in the long run. Take care.
