Is there any theory or calculator to measure the amount of concern in a human mind? Or is it possible to measure and identify the exact amount of mental strain that never generates unbearable anxiety?
A psychiatrist or a medical expert treating mental stress can give a proper, specific answer to these questions. But, for an ordinary person, mental disturbance means a state of worrying. Yes, it means bothering for something that brings mental strain. And sometimes, this mental pressure creates excess concern, which produces unbearable tension.
Concern or anxiety is a common ailment in humans. And every human being suffers from this agony due to several reasons. A serviceman worries about his job and his salary. On the other hand, a student fears not securing good marks in exams. And a housewife always feels the tension about household work and the upbringing of her kids. Apart from these, people also become tense about what others say or think about them or their activities.
However, getting unnecessarily worried or fearing others’ saying or thinking is nothing but a waste of time. Most humans spend a significant portion of their days contemplating this. And it impacts adversely by hampering their productivity both in body and mind.
A big chunk of these people even starts believing and pondering many nonexistent things. It debars them from doing anything useful. Even excessive worrying sometimes becomes one of the main reasons behind acute mental disorders like depression. According to World Health Organization, nearly 3.8% of the world population has this problem.
Getting preoccupied immoderately with others’ words or thoughts hinders a person from concentrating on his works. It appears challenging for him to control his mind. And the constant increase of this issue ultimately compels the affected human to surrender to acute helplessness or impotence in positive thinking.
Now coping with such a situation is not difficult. But not easy also. Getting back control of the mind and defeating destructive thoughts is undeniably challenging. Moreover, guarding the arena of thinking after overcoming the said mental state is even comparatively much tougher. And these entire circumstances give birth to an essential question.
The question is whether getting concerned is beneficial at all. If it is yes, then another question emerges. How much should one be concerned about a thing or situation?
Bothering for something is a common human nature. Everyone on this earth bothers for a specific thing. And it must be different for different people. Furthermore, straining on the mind is not always bad. It helps a man winnow his mental power to explore better ideas and solutions for bitter problems.
Even some persons encash their restlessness as a tool to achieve the highest outcome in a targeted job. Several instances show that hard work, mingled with concern, enhances the positive productivity rate. Sometimes worrying appears more as caring. That means having strain doesn’t necessarily bring fatal impacts. It depends upon a man how much and in what ways he can respond to his anxiety for securing benefits from it. There is no specific scale to measure how much one should get worried and where to stop getting concerned.
Training the willpower to keep away the evil thoughts is not always easy. But a solid set of mind to bear the fruitful thinking only, for sure, helps a man to identify the line that should not get crossed at any cost.
Some people feel the necessity to bother others’ saying. But responding to other peoples’ words all the time means killing valuable time. Paying heed is necessary only when their words have a mass appeal.
It means the development of a robust set of mind is essential. It helps to safeguard thoughts and even refrain from unnecessarily entertaining unfruitful or useless thoughts. It, for sure, opens the door to a more sound, meaningful, and convincing identity.
Also, there is a wrong concept among many that avoiding being concerned or bothered with others’ opinions means ignoring their valuable ideas. However, it is not that. There always remains a distinction between being attentive to others’ words and unnecessary indulging in others’ thinking.
Like all other rational things caring for humans is a usual practice. But that doesn’t mean one has to pay heed and share all kinds of opinions. Continual vigilance is necessary to these opinions. Every human being must wait and see whether these opinions confront the one he possesses. In addition, whether these are beneficial or fatal. If they appear worthwhile, then, for sure, a genuine concern will emerge and help sort out the better one among these two sets of opinions.
Nonetheless, a more constructive concern or caring is necessary to address the issue if the confrontation emerges more extensively than what the person previously perceived. Excess tension is always perceptible. Any excessively tensed man feels an unbearable aching both in body and mind. The said hammering signals that the person should stop bothering as it could be fatal.
The cognitive area of the human mind always makes a human familiar when the anxiety starts getting unbearable shape. And this feeling is the borderline that says let’s not move further. The said notion or feeling acts as a calculator to indicate where one should cease to worry.
