The Psychology of Right Response

iStock_000004520845XSmallSometimes, we find ourselves reacting rather than responding. If we do not know how to control our reactions then we are heading to act the way the stimulus of the situation wants us to behave. We find ourselves doing the perfect reaction to a certain action which maybe a positive or negative one. We often are not aware that our negative behavior is caused by a stimulus and we are conditioned to react to the very nature of the initial action. We react negatively when we feel that the situation imbibe negative feelings and likewise we react positively when we are conditioned by a positive stimulus. and during those times that our minds are clouded and confused it is always better to reflect what are those negativism that make us restless.

We are always conditioned by what conditions us. Looking around your surroundings will make you aware why you and other people behave and act that way. We are shaped by what surrounds us so we need to choose carefully what do we want to surround us. The power always lie on us once we recognize that our environment may contribute to the very behavior that we are possessing now. To change them is not that easy it entails consistency and endurance.

We sometimes aware of it and most of the time it is manifested on how we react to situations. We defend our idea. we defend our actions. we defend what favors us. and it is very natural. but the things is this defense system is automatic to animals but not to human. Controlling such system is always under the will of man. If we are aware enough, we may not use it for a better purpose.

We put people to defensive mode when we hurt them. and that’s the beginning of argument. but people wise enough to control their defense mechanism control also their actions and behavior as well as the situation that conditioned them to act such way. We humans are suppose to be the one controlling what conditions us not the other way around. It is the very nature of the animals in the lowest kingdom to act and behave to what conditions them. They react because they do not do how to respond. Unless training intervenes. Humans must always respond. we have our will which we can use to control our actions that can make noble and higher to any being. We control
