Why do I have the constant fear after coming out as trans that the feeling of dysphoria will lessen and I'm just faking everything even though I know that it always came in waves before? I somehow fear that if I get therapy in the future my therapist will diagnose that I won't need HRT...

Why does it have to be so complicated? 😕

"Can't Let Go" is a song by American singer-songwriter #MariahCarey from her second studio album, #Emotions (1991). It was released as the album's second single on October 23, 1991, by #ColumbiaRecords in the United States and the first quarter of 1992 elsewhere. It was written and produced by Carey and #WalterAfanasieff. The protagonist of this synthesizer-heavy ballad laments an ex-lover who has moved on.

Yesterday, an old friend called me. He asked to meet up again. We talked a lot, and I discovered that he's battling a serious illness, which he's been living with for a few years now and will likely only leave him with a few more years to live.
He had an admirable resignation and serenity, simply saying that while everyone makes long-term plans, he limits himself to taking things one day at a time, making the most out of each day because he doesn't know in what state of health and energy he'll wake up the next day.
He wanted to see me, and I wanted to be there for him, to ensure that he could have the best possible time.

Tonight, alone, I cried. 😢

Dealing with a #narcissist is hard on your #mind and #emotions.

Narcissists act in ways that are manipulative, controlling, cruel, and even evil.

It’s a virtual requirement as a politician.

To stop narcissists from controlling your mind and emotions, you first need to know how they do it and then come up with strategies that make you stronger

The narcissist can’t exist in a void, they must have sycophants whose loyalty is unswerving. But that’s for another story.

My brain/emotions have a relationship set of rules.
1st off communication is essential.
This is my list & thoughts.
Long term.
Monogamy. We are exclusive and and trustworthy.
My partner could have A partner that is of different gender from me.
We must have open communication and have met. No secrets. There is no expectation of my inclusion within their relationship.
If that partner is married or in a relationship none of it can be secret.

If there are to be multiple people involved it must not be a surprise, and it must be inclusive. Again, communication is essential and no secrets.

Single, do whatever you want, just don’t hurt unwilling others. Everyone has a backstory.

That has been my thought for a long time. It is amazing how many people are unable to communicate or have stepped out and kept secrets.

Once trust is gone, that is a very difficult spot. One that I don’t particularly enjoy being in.

A question.
Do your emotions add up to more than 100%?

Can you be 40% happy, 70% sad and 23% annoyed?
Or if you are 70% sad can you only be 30% happy?

I had to fill out a well-being survey recently and my emotions could only add up to 100%.
I don't think that is how emotions work?

My therapist once told me, in regards to my relationship with my father:
“Like it or not, you have a relationship with your father. Everybody has a relationship with A father, even if they don’t have or ever had a father. Having a father is part of everyone’s psyche, therefore you have a relationship with a or your father. The only thing you need to do is define this relationship the best way it works for you. It doesn’t have to be ideal, it just needs to not jeopardize your life.”

I wanted this to be a self directed activity, where one could write thoughts that personally help them get grounded and feel better. And that they could keep this on hand for when they need a pick-me-up and all they have to do is like, pick a number or a color, or roll a virtual dice or actual dice and it would fall on a "good thought".

Anyone got ideas for what to add, or rules, or something?

How you write them is up to you-- pain as an acronym, all the P, A, I, N words in each respective letter... I dunno, whatever you wanna do with it.

I'm going to be filling this out for myself later.

#ColoringPages #ActivitySheet #Pain #ChronicIllness #Emotions #HidradenitisSuppurativa #Lonely #Healing #FreeArt

A coloring activity sheet with big letters in the center that spell PAIN. Inside the letters of that word are lines to write words of the feelings in your particular pain. 

Above the letters PAIN it reads: 
All the feels inside.

And below it reads: 
You can write them here.

The world can break us down. I’d love to hear how y’all find ways to see the beauty in life. What makes you feel better? Optimistic? Comforted?

Maybe a thread here would help others.

For me, music helps a lot. Being in a room with my kids and wife helps. Dogs on my lap. Chocolate. Rain. Lots of clouds and rain. Good coffee.

#Alexithymia is not developed by autists due to their #autism. Alexithymia is developed by autists because #neurotypicals continuously invalidate our #emotions until we become utterly confused by them and incapable of expressing (or even of knowing) anything about them.

@thetaoistonline I'm aware that there's an extensive philosophical literature on emotions.

And ... it's not entirely in vain.

But much as other branches of philosophy have evolved into scientific disciplines, or been strongly informed by them, I feel this area could as well. It was after thinking to myself "emotions clearly must have developed through evolution and provide some level of fitness benefit, I wonder if anyone's looked into the evolutionary origins of emotions question" that I did a few searches ... and turned up Charles Darwin's work.

I'm not saying that discussion of how we engage with our emotions on a philosophical basis is invalid. But ... it should at least offer a nod to the science and origins, methinks.

China Gears Up for Cognitive Warfare

China’s military is increasingly at work on wearable technology and a dedicated #psychological #support #system to win at what it views as the crucial space of #cognitive #warfare—manipulating enemy troops’ state of mind to shape their behavior and hardening its own forces against such efforts.

“In future cognitive domain operations, the influence of rational factors such as science and logic on individual cognition is likely to be weakened, and cognitive confrontation may become a #contest of #emotions,” says one recent article in PLA Daily.

Cognitive domain operations seek to capture the mind of one’s foes, changing the thoughts and perceptions of an adversary to shape their decisions and actions. As another People’s Liberation Army outlet describes, a cognitive attack aims to “use an “invisible hand” to control the opponent’s will, making the opponent feel “I can’t” and “I dare not,” and then achieve the effect of “I don't want to.”

General comment (have not read that)..

Totally plausible. But it sounds equivalent to feelings or #emotions. These are (or should be considered, IMO) a language in their own right.

I'd say that we are not all equally fluent in this #language, for sure. In fact, it's the interpretation of these, combined with the need to share them with others in suitable ways, that drives the initial motivation for another, more formal language, as well as the inherent discrepancies that occur in #communication.

So I'd probably modify the "symbolic mapping onto mother tongue" description as a social alignment of these individual-yet-shared states through higher forms of communication, especially going away from "now", where feelings tend to dominate, to the juxtaposition of the past & future, where we need extended reasoning to anticipate future emotional needs*, and how we might best ensure them.

This level of #complexity is not possible with (logographic) symbolism, which generally comes in ~1:1 ratios to meaning, such as #numbers do. This framing also harmonizes with several other schools of thought, from Fast/Slow Thinking, to Incompleteness.

*I include eating there, even though it might be seen as physical. Reason being that hunger is an emotion (interconnected to others too) that signals a need.

short video from patrick teahan about other peoples' moods as a top-tier trigger for people with childhood trauma:

i clicked on it immediately because i definitely have this problem. i fall heavily into the first camp: assuming that i caused the other person's sour mood and/or feeling like i have to help "fix it."

this is totally rooted in how i grew up with my parents. both of them (in their own unique ways) don't emotionally self-regulate and expect other people (that would be me, when i'm around) to play the part of the helpful child and listen, sympathize, and cheer them up. even if they didn't expect it, i did it anyway because i hated having a walking human dark cloud in the house. it's even worse when they meltdown in public because they might be awful to people in service positions, or do something weird on the road, or just make things uncomfortable around other people.

anyway, it's a hard pattern to break, but i try! i try hard!!!

Cela peut se traduire par :

- réconforter les parents en cas de conflit
- réprimer ses émotions pour paraître fort

What are #positive #thoughts? What are negative #emotions? Or categories of good/bad?

Is it bad or negative to cry, to mourn, to feel angry to have fear?

Why do we judge? For what is it good?

Certainly, #depression is a different category. When you feel "nothing", or just this deep pit or long tunnel, muddy darkness, heavy load. It is important to get professional help. At least to stay alive.

But generally, what about asking yourself "Is this thought helpful?"

I am in the midst of rounding out my comprehensive exam reading list for my minor in #psychology

Does anyone here have suggestions for good Psych papers on emotion regulation for queer & trans people?

Especially if articles contain mentions of using technology to mediate this or group experiences.

Thank you for the help!

A second #introduction post as I have just switched to another server. I first joined Mastodon on 31 October 2022 and all I can say is: ahhh, it is so cosy here. :mastodonworld:

I am a quiet sort, but friendly. Hoping that counts. ☺️ I'm a #PhD student in the UK studying #Immigration, #MoralPanics, #Discourse, #Racism, and #Emotions.

About Me: She/Her; #LGBTQ. I try to learn a little something new everyday that has absolutely nothing to do with the PhD.

My last work: Constraint Satisfaction and Recirculation Neural Networks Framework.
Example of training and testing session applied to clinical data for the exploration of complex relationship between emotional's pattern and cognitive style.
