Hey there fellas! Using the swing. Isn’t t obvious it’s fun. You are swinging off an ordinary kinetically rotatory swing held to the strong foundation of park. Of course, it’s not worth if it’s not fun.
Ask us adolescents, the answer is no. No, it isn’t. Before you jump off that and start arguing with me, ‘why?’. Let me tell you, we are about to discuss the ‘mood swings’.
A neurological term referring to the transient transition of a person’s behavior. Transition is important for person, but these swings are not that good. It’s a root cause for depression. Rather it itself gets originated from a few other neurological disorders. Bipolar disorder, Borderline Personality disorder (BPD), Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD), Sometimes Schizophrenia and Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Unfortunately, almost 35% of the youth across the world is struck with this conundrum.
The changes of sleep patterns are a loss of self-esteem should be enough for you to understand you are caught by a disorder. But being caught in a disorder, itself is a major setback for one’s mental health. Just thinking about the swings, makes people depressed. The junk food needs to be blamed too. It has high sugar content, and too much blood sugar also leads to mood swings.
Relax! Take a deep breath and calm down. If you ask me to define Mood swing, it’s quite simple. It’s a common neurological phenomenon which is deemed to happen in a stressful life of this ever-changing world. It is a nuisance. None can deny.
Person swinging with his moods, might seem violent. Sometimes, they perform self-harming activities, come up with suicidal intentions, break open with violent outbreaks. However, in most of the cases they never intend to harm others. But their aggressive behavior causes a major setback to their social life.
People are pushed out, if they tend to interact with the sufferer. This swing lessens their interaction. Not just with their friends, but also creates a gap within the family. This swing isn’t ordinary. It’s vicious.
Don’t jump off so suddenly. You will hurt yourself. Let it slow down, and as it comes to rest. Slowly step down. So, is the case with mood swing. One should not jump off directly to drug medication. Pace is important but with a calm mind.
First, relax. Introspect and accept. That you are caught in a problem. It is not a one-man act, gather around your characters, talk with them. Open yourself up, do what you love. Engage yourself with self-soothing activities.
Second, approach a psychiatrist. Don’t hesitate. Have faith in my words, they will help you. There are many techniques under their sleeves. Like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Emotional Behavioral therapy (CEBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Third, try focusing on the ‘why’ and ‘how’ aspects. It would enhance your practical approach. Filling you with willingness rather than wilfulness. Which is an important part in building your character.
And last, comes medication. Lithium (Lithium salts generally Lithium Citrate) is a commonly prescribed drug. Helps reduce depressing thoughts.
Push yourself from the negative thoughts, towards the positive sun shine. And steadily come down that swing. I believe you, you can do it. You can conquer that conundrum.
In the end. No, It’s the start.
