Human beings have a natural tendency to hold on to other people or things that are important to them, because those people or things fulfill their needs, wants and desires.
Boredom is one of the most commonly admitted to and experienced feelings. We are for example, less likely to admit that we are feeling scared, upset or lonely than we are bored.
A person with self-confidence believes that they have the ability to overcome any challenge they face, no matter how difficult it may be. They believe that they can do something, and believe that they can do it well.
Fear occurs as a response to something which is perceived as being threatening, dangerous or harmful. Fear can cause a person to feel nervous, anxious and can even impair their bodily functions by interfering with their ability to think clearly, speak with a steady voice and keep a steady hand.
People living in today’s society live in a fast paced and ever-changing world. These changes are largely a result of our various technological and informational breakthroughs.
As a child, you probably experienced a time in your life when you were told that you weren’t good enough, or didn’t do something well enough.
Whenever one of our needs (e.g., friendship, love, achievement) reaches a certain level of dissatisfaction, we experience a corresponding primary feeling (e.g., boredom, anger, fear, sadness, loneliness or inadequacy) which is meant to motivate us into taking action so that we can fulfill that need.
Trying to ignore how you feel about something can not only make those feelings worse, but it can also cause you to feel frustrated. This occurs because whenever you keep doing something that doesn’t satisfy your unfulfilled needs, you start to feel frustrated with your efforts because nothing you do seems to work.
In today’s busy world, stress has become an unavoidable part of life for many people. This stress may be caused by unsatisfied primary feelings (internal stress), the environment you are in (external stress) and/or learned patterns of stress that you have picked up from people around you such as family or friends.
Within the last few decades loneliness has become an increasingly common occurrence, and is something which seems to have been driven largely by recent technological advancements.
