Some Signs Of Emotional Illness

Some signs of emotional or mental illness in an adult, unspecified, mild to severe
(may include effects of trauma)
*** all emotional and mental illnesses are treatable and improvable, the brain has "neuroplasticity" :

"Numbness"; feeling unattached to one's emotions.

Having an apparent lack/absence of emotions.

Living through and inside of one's emotions, moods, and reactions.

Using substances frequently to try to stimulate or suppress emotions and moods.

Always being in some kind of intense "mood".
(Not simply appearing to be in a mood, but actually being IN one, regardless of the way others are treating them, and regardless of situations and events, current, past, and future.)

Unable to NAME one's own moods or emotions.

Always seem to be emotionally invested in who and what is "right", even if the topic is completely neutral (like which kind of nail would be best for a job, or what kind of spice to use for a recipe, or whether Pluto is a planet or not).


Feeling justified and entitled to control others.

Rarely or never in a neutral state of mind or emotion.

Having an emotionally charged opinion about literally everything and everyone, not just about topics they're passionate about or personally involved in.

All of their actions feel justified because that's "how they FELT at the time"; they behave according to their emotions and moods, not according to objective values, integrity, ethics, or principals.Incapable of objectivity; everything and every person is either "right" or "wrong", and either "good" or "bad".

"Taking sides" in any and every discussion, theory, plan, disagreement, or conflict, whether they're personally involved or not.

Creating "sides" and "factions" where none were present in any discussion or group that they're in, so they can be on the "good" or "right" side. 

Reacting with volatility to any person who doesn't align and agree with their opinions and emotions.

Reacting with hostility, even aggression, toward any person whom they envy or feel threatened by for any reason.

Always talking about how they deserve to be rewarded for how much work they do.

Frequently talking about how much they suffer from stress, but refusing to do anything constructive about it, change anything about themselves, or seek outside help to improve their own habits and thinking.

Frequently judging others negatively, seeking ways to put others down, trying to cast shame on others.

Trying to convince others to reject or turn against people in their own family, community, or associate groups with gossip, rumors, and implications.
(There are no real witnesses, documents, or other proof to accusations. There may be witnesses to emotional reactions such as crying or anger, but not to the actual events that are being spread around. Usually because they didn't happen; in fact, usually, gossip and rumors are attempts to deflect real things that the gossiper has done, especially if they know proof exists.)

Reacting with volatility and opposition to nearly any topic about human behavior or psychology, or trying to shut it down.

Feeling abandoned, neglected, and abused when someone else is busy doing anything, or paying attention to someone else.

Feeling justified and entitled to all behaviors, including retaliation and "vengeance", even for very trivial "slights" or "crimes", and even for NON EXISTENT ones (things that never happened, or were NOT "wrong").

Finding or MAKING UP excuses for retaliation because they get a charge, a "high" from it.

Frequently accusing others of being emotional and dramatic for any emotional expression, especially anger at them for something they did.

Often trying to provoke or control emotions, moods, and emotional reactions in others.

Feeling anger when another person seems to be unaffected by their provocation and control tactics.

Believing that all of one's opinions, perceptions, assumptions, judgments, and emotions are correct, and represent objective reality. Little to no self-doubt, speculation, or suspended belief.

Hate Women Hate Men

Do you hate women?   Do you hate men?     


Not the simple, easy, surface excuses, but what exactly was it that happened in your life, to you, personally, that led you to this intensely emotional reaction?

When we remove the factor of gender (and race) from people's behavior, it becomes clear that manipulation, immaturity, arrogance and abusiveness can be seen in both sexes and all races. We tend to try to group people by physical traits like ancestry, race, sex, and wealth when we feel anger or hatred, AND when we feel admiration and want someone to follow. But the FACT is that any way you group humans this way, you'll find both ends of the spectrum: incredible immaturity on one end, and beautiful wisdom on the other.

It's harder to see wisdom, because it's usually drowned out by the noise of the ignorant and pompous, even when it's trying to shout to be heard. The immature always try to out-shout and shut down those who care about others and about the world we live in.

So it may seem like a whole group of people is ignorant, manipulative, arrogant or mean, but that's because the noisy immature are always out in front, they're the ones who are seen and heard the most because they're always trying to dominate others.

Stop grouping people by PHYSICAL traits, and start looking at their actual behaviors, regardless of their sex and race. And regardless if you like them already or not. There's need for self-protection in our world, but hate just makes us ignorant.
