I am in love with a boy. We are together since 5 year. I informed my parents about this boy that I love this boy and I wanted to marry him. My parents are not happy with this relationship. I thing is they have received one letter in that someone unknown person has written he is not a good guy. Please keep your girl stay away from him. But in 5 year of relationship I didn't find out anything negative about him. He is too honest. One more thing I want to share is he has drunk 2/3 times and said bad words to me and shouted at me. I forgot it because I know its his love nothing else. The thing is I had a past. And I just move on and I share everything to him that I was in relationship. I didn't hide anything to him.because I truly love him and I want to spend my whole life with him. About 7 month before I appeared for an interview in my ex office where his office. I never mix my professional life and personal life. But I didn't inform my bf about this I thought he gets angry on me and wouldn't allow me for an interview and it is such a good company so I don't want to loss chance. I told him that I am going for an interview in this company and he always sees my ex updates so he find out that I am going in same company where he is working. I even informed this in my home that I am going for an interview where my ex is working because I have no bad feeling for him. But after thinking a lot although I am selected I said know because I don't want my relationship mess up. On that day in night he called me and ask what you r hiding with me? I said everything and he said bad words to me. Said that there is no difference between you and character less girl. Again I forgot and say sorry to him. Now thing is I forgot everything and I want to marry him. I am trying to convince my parents. because I know I am not with him that is why he is upset once I will with him he will not do such a thing. But after trying 3/4 times my parents are not happy and he is asking for court marriage which I don't want because I don't want to hurt my parents. I am trying to convince my parents but I am not able to convince them so he is not talking with me properly. I am too much in depression. I can't tell this to anyone. Please let me know what should I do. Please.

Psychiatrist, Chennai
It s very simple, you are blinded by love to this emotionally unstable fellow. Your parents r right, and you should thank the guy who has informed your parents. If you marry this fellow, you might regret for life. Do not be blinded by love, and pray sanity prevails upon your mind. After marriage this fellow will be uncotrollable. Suspicoiusness and possesseivness by him is not love, but his low self esteem, paranoia and unstale emotions. You will not realize this now, be careful. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. That is a nice thought. Everybody does the same thing again and again. Maximum are doing routine works. How to change the tempo of routine works? First of all, be yourself aware that in daily 24 hours, you may have to do many routine work. Starting from brushing teeth to taking bath, to going and doing your employment related duties to family commitments etc. In between these many tasks, you may get two or three hours for yourself to be creative and try to be away from routines. This is where you have to be tricky. Hobbies, outing, vacations, games, entertainment, flirting, being with friends etc are activities which will help you to escape from routines. Use them wisely. Take care.

I get panic quickly even for small situations. My heart beats fast. Blood pressure increases. Feel pain in legs. Why is that? How to overcome?

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology, Bachelor of Arts - Psychology and English Literature
Psychologist, Coimbatore
Hi lybrate-user! This is something related to mind, strong fear towards something and the outburst is fast heart beat, pain and many more. Mind is some or the other way related to body, if you are not strong enough in mind then your body shows the weaker sign of fearful symptoms. You can definitely overcome by facing such situation more positively by letting go slowly the fear. There are various techniques Psychologically to overcome such problem and help you lead normal life without any fear. You can consult with a Psychologist at your locality and follow-up to overcome this problem completely without any medication or if you feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage. Take care. Solutions are available either use them differently or the assistance of a Professional who could help you only if you volunteer. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

What is the remedy of stammering problem. Please tell me as soon as possible. Thankyou.

B.A. Psychology, M.A. Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Stammering generally develops in the course of growing up. And is linked somewhat to your self confidence. Try speaking by looking into the mirror. Speak slowly. Create a script before speaking. Exercise deep breathing and say encouraging words to yourself - i'm good, I have qualities. I'm good at doing this believe in yourself.

Hi, I don't know if I have an anxiety disorder. I feel stressed and have some kind of inferiority complex about myself. I worry a lot for no reason, I sometimes don't step out of the house for days together. I feel really conscious and nervous when i'm outside. I also sometimes feel unwanted.

Dear, from the given description, I see some anxiety disorder. But there is nothing to worry. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Are You Emotionally Upset? 10 Ways to Get Over it!

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Pune
Are You Emotionally Upset? 10 Ways to Get Over it!

Life has its ups and downs, but often we hold on to the downs for much longer than the actual event. While the trigger or anger, pain and hurt are beyond our control, the amount it can affect us is well within reach. Here are a few ways to cope better with emotional upsets.

  1. Give yourself a window to be upset: Be realistic and give yourself a time frame to give in to your emotions. Whether, angry, sad or frustrated tell yourself that you have only 1 day to be upset. In a way, this will diffuse the anger, frustration and once this time is over, you can start planning ahead.
  2. Take responsibility: Try analysing what you may have done to make the other person react in the way he or she did. Focus on what you could have done better and you will find yourself feeling more empowered.
  3. Get physical: Exercise and other forms of physical activity decrease stress hormones and increases the productions of endorphins or happy hormones that elevate the mind. Exercising also gives you time to focus on yourself without distractions.
  4. Express yourself: Whether it’s through art or writing, find an outlet for your emotions. This keeps it from being bottled up inside and gets the pain and frustration out of your system.
  5. Breathe: Breathing techniques like ujayii and anulom vilom can help calm the mind down when it is troubled and upset. These breathing techniques also keep your emotions from escalating.
  6. Get company: It is never a good idea to isolate yourself when you’re feeling blue. Instead, find people who you can open up to and share your thoughts with. This will give you a fresh perspective on what is going on.
  7. Look at both sides: No event is ever completely bad. No matter what may be troubling you look at both the good and bad sides of it. This can help minimise your loss and make it easier to let go of the problem.
  8. Do something different: The best way to get your mind off something is to give it something else to focus on. If you’re troubled by something that happened at work, go for a drive or play a sport. Similarly, if you’re having relationship trouble, go out with a few friends or read a book to take your mind off it.
  9. Visualize: Imagine the person or the event that is upsetting you as an object in your mind and visualise it melting away. Remind yourself that the anger or frustration you are feeling is worse than the person or event itself.
  10. Clean up: Organise your desk, your room or start cleaning up space around you. This will take attention away from whatever is troubling you and give you something to do. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am suffering depressions pls give me a why I am suffering this I do not have a mud to do any thing.
Its very important that you live every second happily and enjoy all the beautiful colours of life ,through your query I can understand that you want to change this situation its really good ,when there is a will there is a way. Any professional can show the path but you have to go on that path, you need slightly change in your approach .when any time negative thought runs then just say to yourself that I will deal all this from evening and presently I am suppose to do any work which you are doing and at evening write all the thoughts in diary, one more way is that share all thoughts with any good friend. Divert your mind ,make yourself busy as much as you can so that you don't get time to think ,make some good friends with whom you can share your feelings, develop some hobby, take sleep of 6-8 hours it is compulsory, for this don't sleep at day time ,you need to maintain your sleeping cycle ,do some yoga and meditation, don't think on this topic as much you will think you will be more frustrated because these thoughts are endless. Take care.

I am 22 years old and smoke 5 sticks a day. Can you please tell me whether I am at risk? Can you please advise me with some tips to help quit smoking. Thank you in advance.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are at rick even if you smoke one cigarette a day. There are 4000 chemical substances in cigarette smoke. So the danger is real. So do not worry about that but do quit and live a healthy life. It is never too late to change. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

After antidepressants there is need to take psychotherapy. Medicine will work some time. But the psychological feelings cannot stop. You are feeling insecure feelling. Now you need life style management. If it is possible change yourself. Be think in a positive manner. Be friendly with others. Be share your all feelings with your friends. Be happy all the time. If it is not possible to yourself then take the help of psychologist. Ok all the best. Best wishes.
