Mental Health Problems

“Why do humans have to learn how to suffer? Psychological suffering is severe and burdensome. We should do everything we can to understand it better.”

(burn out, depression and anxiety etc.)

Symptoms (illness)

BurdenWe all have to carry our own burden. Our burdens vary over time. Heavy burdens may result in stress, emotionally difficult circumstances or setbacks.

StrengthWe all have our strong and weak points. Our strength can weaken or improve during certain moments in our life. Experience of life or therapy may cause strength to improve, aging or suffering heavy setbacks however, will cause strength to weaken.

When your burden outweighs yours strength the following symptoms might develop: anxiety, sleeping disorder, depression, hyperventilation, overbreathing, phobia, self-esteem problems, self-harm, alcohol and drug abuse, psychosomatic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder.
