The Evolution of Religion In the foregoing part of this work we have become familiar with the way in which our present outside world came into existence, and how man evolved the complicated organism with which he is related to outer conditions. We have also, in a measure, studied the Jewish Race-religion. We will next consider the last and greatest of the divine measures put forth for the uplifting of humanity, i.
Amy Winehouse Lindsay Lohan Note that there is an added complication for self-destructive celebrities. The more they self-harm or take unhealthy risks with their lives, the more attention, controversy, and publicity they generate. This merely adds to the vicious circle of self-destruction.
Development of Self-Destruction Like all negative personality traits, self-destruction typically develops through the following sequence: Early negative experiences Misconceptions about the nature of self, life or others A constant fear and sense of insecurity A maladaptive strategy to protect the self A persona to hide all of the above in adulthood Early Negative Experiences In the case of self-destruction, the early negative experiences typically consist of a childhood abuse or trauma over which the child had no control.
This kicks off the self-destructive behaviour, while lack of secure parental attachment helps maintain it. Perhaps the father was a drunk who came home every night in a violent rage.
Perhaps the mother was mentally unstable and would attack her children for no apparent reason. Or perhaps school teachers imposed a severe regime involving random punishments. In addition, one or both parents may have been unable or unwilling to give the love, care and attention that were naturally craved by the child.
So the child would have felt fundamentally alone in this terror, as well as feeling helpless to do anything about it. If life is so cruel then it is not worth living. I wish I had never been born. Being hurt so much means that I must be bad.
Fear Along on such ideas, the child becomes gripped by a complex fear — the fear of losing control. In other words, the child is terrified of — repeating an earlier trauma, expressing whatever part of himself might attract such trauma, and unleashing his own desire to punish or eliminate that part of himself.
Those caught in self-destruction are thus embroiled in inner conflict. Strategy There are various strategies for coping with this complex issue, but the key is to maintain control of something. My survival depends upon me taking back control of my life.
This is the basis of the condition known as anorexia nervosa. Anxiety compels us to find some sort of self-protection, to feel that there is some way we can control what happens to us.
But in many families, especially those with a stifling or oppressive atmosphere, there is simply no room for an anxious child undergoing puberty to exercise control over anything around them. Their very anxiety may be seen as an embarrassment, something to be hidden and never discussed.
In effect, the need for control turns inwards. The ideal of being stick-thin, free from the desire to eat, seems to tick several boxes at once: Can I drink even more than the last time? How many drugs can I take and not die? How fast can I drive a motorbike and get away with it?
Every time they survive such an experience, it merely bolsters their belief that control in the face of danger is a necessary strategy. But this false sense of control merely begs the question, prompted by the same fear: Is that the limit of my control?ong (love song, with two goldfish) commentary The destructive nature of love is delineated through the extended metaphor of the disintegration of the lives of the “two goldfish.” The poem is written from the perspective of an onlooker referring to fish as “he” which anthropomorphizes the poem.
