This is a story I did for the local news in Stevenage regarding Borderline Personality Disorder although chose to remain anonymous as it gets the message across to the mental health professionals and the public to aid better research to help others.
Please take a read and share if you can as will help at least one person.
Thank you x
Biases are contradictive. Biases are incorrect. Biases are forms of opinionated judgement.
We all haven’t experienced the same experiences except we can conform to the same idea based on another’s intuitive judgement. Status is mostly responsible for this.
We will unintentionally use the availability heuristic to make judgements about people even when not represented with the facts. This is where we need to be careful…
This is where mistakes can arise. This is where integrity can be abandoned and common sense he misjudged.
We must all learn how to make our own judgements and decisions to determine what is right and what is wrong. I find that many people will conform to a professional’s idea or way of thinking even when a person in question is innocent.
Here’s a scenario…
A woman and a man arrange to meet for a coffee. The man admits he would like a divorce and wanted someone to talk to. The man has no intentions but his wife’s friend walks past the coffee shop.
Would you assume this man wants anything else from this woman other than a conversation?
What political or psychological factors do you think are involved in the scenario?
What do you assume?
That is how quickly our judgements can affect our moods and emotions.
I’m alone in the world. I’m about to embark on a journey to the Scottish Capital within a month. Wanting an education and a degree meant so much to me and I messed that up for myself by getting involved with toxic people and can only get a year funding so appealing it. Anyone should be entitled to an education if they really want it. I need to get back into socialising in a positive community again and I may have skills but I need practical life skills and to be around my siblings. I’m literally estranged in England with no one and have to give up everything I worked for but I’m thankful for the positive experiences. Sometimes a mental health crisis is beyond our control and it’s okay not to be okay.
I’m proud of myself for getting this far anyhow and looking forward to building a new future 💗
