Mental Health and Behavioral Patterns
We are now living in what is known the computer and technology world where speed is the name of the game. We are in a mad rush for achieving success in the shortest possible time even if it means resorting to means that are not exactly honest and fair.
In such a situation it is least expected that behavioral traits which are abnormal, like too much of anger, nervousness and irritation are considered as the initial symptoms of an impending cause of mental illness.
The problem with a large number of people is that they are financially and commercially in a healthy situation, but when it comes to their mental health they have a lot to be desired. It has been researched and found out that a lot many people suffer from what is known as silent depression which is the natural outcome of a stress filled and monotonous life style where making money in the only goal in a person’s life.
It has to be considered that while some bit of anger and nervousness is expected even from normal human beings, too much of it could be considered as the first signs of mental illness. So ignoring cold-shouldering radical changes in behavioral changes is dangerous to say the least.
