Exposure to Stress and Trauma:
PTSD Post Traumatic Disorder is one of the mood and feelings related issue a person is facing. One of the great psychologist has mentioned that, “a person is not affected what happened to him but affected by how he view the things?” As our beliefs are strong and we want to prove it to be true.
In doing so we behave as if we have accepted the belief, hard hitting of the action to make the belief wrong and last we escape from the belief. All these three are behavioral aspects which an human can do after thoughts and feelings. And hence traumatic situation has left us but the memories which we have and we become so vulnerable to those memories as it defined our belief.
How your exposure for stress and trauma decide your depressive mood? If you are putting your thoughts on autopilot mode or you behaviour is automatic. Chances are there that you become more depressive.
Feelings of sad, hopelessness, helplessness and empty inside made person more vulnerable. Because such people keep themselves isolated and they expect if things will improve the person may change his feelings. But if not than he keeps himself isolated.
Keeping self away from everything. Social isolation brings overthinking and as person is accepting his belief his conceptual cycle drops him down to believe on his belief which he thinks.
Now a days we find nuclear families and we also have seen all have different thoughts and beliefs. Just because of that internal disappointment and disagreement is more serious. A person who lives and raised in family conflict becomes irritable personality.
I need advice. Cheerless sad man not knowing what to do while listening to family quarrel.
Aggression and anger is part of the feelings. This kind of person has built up two ways in his mind. One a person is dominant to prove his belief and make another person vulnerable. Second, a person becomes submissive and accept everything even it is wrong.
In both cases a person’s behavior is accept the belief of escape from the action. Family conflicts play major role in depressive disorders and moods.

Survival and todays’ life of status quo bring a men to most competitive era. To become rich a man is forgetting his self-satisfaction and mental wellness. In order to achieve some financial security he compromises with his passion and skills.
Even blessed with all amenities in life a person feels not enough. Second, in order to achieve survival a person forgets his real sense of quality and do job which never satisfy his will.
Financial hardship like payment of credit cards, EMIs, costly life style etc. are responsible for stress, overthinking and depressive moods.
Screen time and social Media:
High usage of screen time. Sitting with phone without no reason and not giving chance for self-conversation lead to stressful life in long term. As everybody wake up go to office and coming back to home sitting with news and no or lack of conversation with family members lead to depressive mood.
Many people feel self- guilt as they feel they misused their time. Many people by not talking with self, caught by another person and drive their life as per that person.
No feelings of hold on life leads to depressive mood. As other factors and people drive them rather they should drive by themselves.
Depressive mood generally origin of the thoughts and images we see in our mind. And as per the same we decide our moods. If you really be happy and feel free from the mental bondage you need to sit with self and observe what is going on? Why?
