    #29 Thank you, @Julie Hickman for sharing your views I agree with them it must be the way you have said but sometimes the sad part is that the men with this disrupted mentality are somewhere or the others a father or brother figure and still can't make hold of it. It makes me even sadder when I come to know about cases where the victim is raped by their father or brother and my heart sinks :(

    Where there is any portal of light shining through, grab it, bring it into view and then that is one more hole of hope, that light can get through. The coming generations will see more of this light than we were limited to, so long as we are not consumed by the very darkness that gets exposed in documentaries and instead see all of this as tiny steps towards a healthier view of humanity.

    Thank you @Sushmita Thakare Jain for sharing your brilliant post. According to a study carried out by the British NGO ActionAid, 79 percent of Indian women have already experienced violence or sexual harassment while out and about in the streets. There is several group of people in India, as “Blank Noise”, who have organised several events, including the “I never ask for it” campaign, to fight this terrible trend and to raise awareness about it. Keep going !

    I loved Malaika Arora Khan tweet on what you shared above with everyone. And some of them give women the push they need. To stand up and fight for the respect that rightfully ours.

    As Julie says "Every son, brother, father, or loving husband made it a mission to eliminate violence against women. These same men could be the best advocates and greatest allies in the struggle to keep their mothers, sisters, daughters and wives safe on earth. It should begin in every family for the change to happen. Well said Julie Hickman

    @CityVP 🐝 Manjit so back at that time I watched several broken clips but had never watched the whole documentary. Thank you for sharing this with us. My heart ached watching the video and the way the criminals spoke of rape. May her soul R.I.P. If ask me about the politicians it only makes me squirm. Can a country run without such people. Is it possible to throw all these baised men out and appoint new ones ! I don't know how to answer that question after Hilary lost the elections.

    Thank you @Sushmita Thakare Jain for talking the hearts of many women in India. Your voice is my voice and together the sound can be thundering. When ever a women is disrespected in India there comes a feeling of powerless in me as a women. What could I have done if had to be there ? Even I had no self defense lessons at the time in 2012 when Jyothi lost her light to the darkness that enveloped her. It could have been me ! I was in Delhi a couple of months just before this incident happened.
    My sisters and me we are 3 girls and my mother struggled to bring us up but she taught us to be bold .She always said I wish I had a son. Which of course has changed as I showed her it doesn't have to only be a man, to look after the family , a women like me can also do it. I helped her raise and educate my sisters and run the family as my dad fell sick ,had a stroke and couldn't work. At the age of 16 and took up my family responsibilities. I had not been bold until 2012 as well. Infact this incident is so close to my heart and it made me the bold women I never knew I had in me. My mentality before used to be like if a guy is approaching I should run in the opposite direction. Today, if a guy challenges me I'd challenge him back. When she ( Jyothi ) died she buried our fears and when we cried we drowned our f change the mindset of the children when they grow up. Teach them that there is no man or woman and everyone is a human and a being with life. To give respect and get respect. Sex should be commonly spoken off and not discreet and I can go on. But, at the end of the day it is the mindset. The ones who are spoilt rotten cant change. I am wishing that this generation is bolder, smarter and kinder children a and have a safe world around them.

    Dear Sushmita do you know Anu Aggarwal? Today I saw a post on LinkedIn about her work in India. She wrote about: ... "Since the very start, my teens, this is what my dream was!– "Better people's lives". A trained social worker, MSW I saw "sexual repression" and bursting population of india, a huge hurdle in this. So glamorous star, in the early 90s, i openly talked about sex even if it hurt me public image then, and accepted to endorse and be the Brand Ambassador of a condom. ..." You two seem to fight a good fight!

    I have no answers to the utter evil of rape and the general population being accepting of the status quo. Women are meant to be cherished and are an undeniable force for the good of mankind.

    One could just imagine if every son, brother, father, or loving husband made it a mission to eliminate violence against women. These same men could be the best advocates and greatest allies in the struggle to keep their mothers, sisters, daughters and wives safe on earth. Don't be silent. Thank you @Sushmita Thakare Jain for your advocacy and thank you @Donna-Luisa Eversley for including me in the discussion.

    Hi @Sandra Smith, I agree, the stigma needs to end. I don't see it ending anytime soon because of the lack of awareness, education and quite frankly many people still do see Mental Illness as a weakness, not a real illness. I have written a lot about Anxiety Disorder and the stigmas attached, including the workplace too. Maybe if more of us keep writing, supporting each other's writing, one day the voices will grow louder and together, we can all affect change. Thanks for sharing this!

    #10 I would say that you have cornered the issues in a single sentence. I believe lawyers get a bum wrap to some degree, as humans tend to think because they have been wronged according to their philosophy they can seek $ain. Then add in the topping of costs and insurance companies, the gain exists due to cost to litigate. A vicious cycle of precedents.

More importantly i sense that society is moving forward and the need for all to engage exists. This introduces a deeper challenge of mankind.

    #5 Thank you, @Harvey. Exactly right - you cannot show favouritism at work. But you can foster an environment where it is not seen as favouritism - because there is a genuine need for that person's accommodations. For example, at Symbian, a senior-staffer had a syndrome that made her very tired during the day. So she was allowed to have a couch in her office to rest on. No-one begrudged her because it was explained why she needed it. Of course, having a room with a day bed that anyone can use may be a more fair and diplomatic way to tackle the problem, if practical...

    @Sandra Smith a compelling post. Having lead many people within the construction industry and now in the education industry, I am recognizing this as a growing concern. We work with folks at a very personal level to help them achieve job satisfaction.

    We have recognized that this is the best way to address the minor/major issues that are brought on by an individuals perceptions of themselves. I will have to say though, leadership has to have a very strong personal conviction to address this in the workplace. Although some of the returns on investment are great the fall out within the larger group can be costly.

    Giving an individual special consideration due to mental illness can be seen as favoritism to others who are experiencing temporary bad judgement. Leaders must balance the support of one by the perceptions of others within the workforce. This is not a cop out statement but rather an understanding that the issues of mental illness are growing and the leadership will require a different perspective. But so will co-workers.

    This is why I am writing my piece too. Employers need to start working to create an open environment. Where mental illness is identified, discussed and supported. Not pushed under the carpet and stigmatised. Otherwise they will end up losing talent, and that talent may end up losing themselves."

    Great thoughts, Jim! Resonates with me so much. We so often get distracted with the corporate ladder, or simply our own busy-ness of life. Taking time to pause, reflect and plan daily is so key - not just once a year!

    #3 & #9 remind me of Getting Results the Agile Way by J.D. Meier.
    #4 Reminds me of the Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.
    #5 is like Affirmations to me. Keys I like to remember are :
    1) Personal ("I" am doing something. Nobody is doing it for me),
    2) Positive (I am "not" poor ==> I have enough and am getting more!) and
    3) Present tens (I will be rich ==> I AM abundant in ...).
    #6 & #8 are like gratitude - for the good and the bad

    ... I wrote a post on Six Minute Scribing that works on all of these with 6 daily questions - if you are interested. It helps keeps me focused and grounded.
    Hoping it adds to your great post and might help inspire someone, like you said in #3.

You should most definitely try to use the App more... at least daily I would suggest, even for 5-10 minutes to start.. I know it sounds like a lot, but you will most likely start to enjoy it so it becomes a pleasure. Like going in and out of a Jacuzzi on a cold day.... soooooooo amazzzzzing. I find that now, I get the urge to meditate more than once a day, but time and daily duties restricts me. In a perfect world, I suppose! ;-)

    #6 I mean the one in my comment.

    The app is my professional competition.

    Being able to find and maintain ones inner peace is the goal and takes much growth in the form of finding peace in the places you think you would be certain not to find it.

    #2 Hey Max! Those are awesome mantras, love it! When you say "I use this meditation", do you mean the Calm App specifically? Allowing space for everything that comes up during meditation is so important. Pema Chodron once said, "Sticking with uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic - this is the spiritual path." Thank you for commenting!!! :-)

    Hi Emily,
    What an awesome summary and enticement to meditation and all you can do with the app!

    I have used it some with my Miracle Morning routine (so sharing there). But I need to do this more! So, also sharing in Eckhart Tolle :)

    I use this meditation and have given it to thousands I have worked with.

    Say "I let got of everything"

    Repeat these words until your body takes over the breathing and then tel yourself.

    "I go into the void of my mind to learn what I need to know right now."

    This creates a calm space for you to be shown things that will aid you in dealing with life better and in less stressful ways getting the guidance form within.

    #50 No man in his right senses can deny the fact that we are failing as a species, collectively, by always, consistently, invariably, unrelentingly biting the hand that feeds us, by cutting away the hands that rock our cradles, by slowly draining away the life blood from our very planet, love from our hearts, and hope from the minds of our children allowing them to be led by the illusions of the digital age. Exceptions never made the rule. Of course there is more to it. I apologise everyday. Every time I see a beggar with his hand stretched out. Every time I see a tree being cut to make way for a playground or a bypass road. Every time my rupee buys me less than what it bought me yesterday. Every time I see the cloud of smog enveloping the streets in the mornings. And there's lots more here too. But I fear we are eternal optimists (didn't someone say that the only real pessimist is a dead one? :) If not our civilisation, maybe the next? This age is called Kaliyuga in our ethos. The End of Ages. The decline of civilisation has been so well described that it is frightening. And it is happening as written. Nothing is sacred anymore. In the final equation, good will be outnumbered. Crucified million times over. It is just us. Just you, Just me. And we should treasure, nurture what good there is left around in the people around us. Regardless of who they are and where they might be. Now it is time for a Dylan song dear Sir! Don't think twice it's alright :)

On a Bingee! ;) Why exhaust ourselves on things that we do not or cannot relate to? And Gerry, you produce some terrific stuff and there are many who can understand and relate to you. If someone who pissed you off real bad lived next door, would you go call him out, call him names and then kinda Brianically, shoot him out of the equation? ;) Or would you just ignore, build a wall (like others intend to) and generally paint your own better place, build your won network, connected to those who mean well, understand and matter...and let the kids grow up? To each his/her own affinity bees! It is irresistible - that urge to be judgemental, critical, condescending...and most succumb to it, more often than not; At home or at work.

    First let me thank you for writing this article which is an important topic for so many @John White, MBA. Your dad had to be fairly young when he passed. I found out something interesting just last night. Those who lose parents when they are younger tend to worry about dying earlier in age too along with the pain of loss which never leaves us, it just changes with time.

    You also brought up another important topic, fleeing a place to be alone when a panic attack comes on. When I first developed anxiety disease and had no clue what a panic attack was and had a fear of passing out in front of people not to mention, a fear of what the hell is happening to me?! I remember being in a store once writing a check and my sister was with me. I signed it then quickly said, you need to finish this and ran out of the store. I sat in the car crying, not sure what was going on and she came out asking, what just happened? It was so embarrassing.

    Thanks for writing what you do to cope and reiterating how important it is to get help. People should not have to be embarrassed because they have an illness they have no control over. Excellent article John and I thank you for tagging me!!

    A beautifully written recollection @Phillip Hubbell. I taught English to student-inmates at a state prison while attending graduate school. The prison was originally a state mental hospital. The prison was segregated, with the general population being housed separately from those in the special treatment center, except while attending school. The special treatment center was filled with inmates requiring medications for various mental disorders.
    If one had faked taking his meds, classroom discussions would become more than interesting. I decided I'd had enough when they knocked holes in the cafeteria walls to insert machine guns. The security level had been increased from medium to maximum and they were introducing women into the mix.

    Wonderful story @Lance Scoular 🐝, a very poignant reminder of our need to stay connected. As a medic, I had a handful of call's to respond to successful suicides and far too many calls to respond to an attempt. The horror of some of those calls, the families devastation has, like you, stuck with me. The suicide rate has increased 6% here in MN in the last year, driven primarily by men of a certain age (mine). More disconcerting is the rate of veteran suicides being 40% higher higher than that of the general population here int he US. Only through increased awareness, actively engaging with people, and staying connected can we battle this permanent solution to a temporary problem. "R U OK" is a great theme, and one that should be adopted worldwide. I am OK Lance, thanks for asking!

    You ended this perfectly Vincent; "The only thing "too much" about the world is that there is too dang much of it. We are in a world sized labyrinth of choices and decisions, and sometimes if we are in it alone, we could be lost forever. We can't do it alone everyone, even if that is our biggest struggle.." Enjoyed this post very much. You make some excellent points. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    @Vincent King...Margaret @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD...yes, the world is enough, our typical individual situation in life is enough, to teach us and to learn from i presume. Nobody owes us answers. We vote the people who make our laws into power. We allow our smiles to be mistaken for signs of weakness so that we are taken advantage of, and then we put on a poker face for greater control! ;) We shut ourselves up, we keep secrets from the ones who love us truly, we neglect priorities, indulge inconsiderately, we are afraid to raise our voices, to express clearly, we do not treat others the way we would like to be treated, we exploit people, the planet, we have forgotten to give back, even in the face of blow after blow to our ego, right from childhood days, we cling to the vanity, the pride, the bling and every little inconsequential thing...and call it our freedom to choose, a nice excuse. Many have found answers, showed us the way, in the hoary old past, through the ages, even in this day. If we listen to the voice inside, I believe we can still succeed in hearing the sound of that one hand clapping ;) Great indeed is the love of God who gives without receiving, of this Earth constantly sacrificing itself, of our near and dear who care regardless of our responsiveness...and that will keep us alive long enough to learn the truth, even if it means coming back again and again into this Matrix. It is nice indeed, in fact irresistible, to delve into the origins, the evolution, into space, into time, into the root cause...but not at the cost of losing grip on the present, the here and now that has all the answers embedded in it.

    #9 @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD I was a licensed PI for the state of Washington. I don't play nice. When I "run" a clinic, a HIPAA violation is the usual appetizer; the billing fraud hammer comes later, usually after I have forced/ threatened a State Compliance Audit.....and the drug ring cases I usually dumped at the FDA, DEA doorstep - they have a heavier hammer than I.

    You will never get to be "Uncrazy" - there is no test for normal personality, every clinical interaction will reaffirm the current Dx or assign a new Dx that perpetuates the treatment, counseling, maintenance, meditcation carousel. The system does not want you cured but on an ever revolving cycle of meds and side effects that keep feeding their machine. Try it sometime - go to a provider and tell them you feel fine.....you will leave with at least one "illness" and a med script.......PS this is how I used to bust providers that were suspected of over prescribing opiods because of a nice pharma kickback incentive.

    Vincent, how are you today? Have you found some ways to handle the panic episodes? I invite you to try mindful meditation or practice simple deep breathing. Inhale for 4, hold for 4, then exhale for 8 (letting the air all the way out). Do this intentionally at least 5 times and you should notice your body relax and your blood pressure regulate. You may also be interested in the Calm app for your smartphone. I use it to manage my challenging mental health and I swear by it. A free version is available. I wrote an article about it. It's on my beBee Blog.

    #5 I understand, sadly I've been there. I find they may disappear for a long time and come back out of the blue. But, there's usually an event that triggers them or a series of events. Then they seem to come on after stress let down for me, if that makes sense? Do you have a counselor?

    Yes! “We all need something to help us feel grounded when we're about to take a leap out of our comfort zone…we need a close bond with someone (or something) in order to become independent.” I invite your readers to this particular link re attachment. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/born-under-wings-other-paradoxes-sara-jacobovici?trk=mp-reader-card
    That is what it’s all about; we have been attaching or not attaching from the moment of conception. There are biological, physical, emotional and social attachments happening or not happening on a daily basis. Part of the choice we take to attach, or not, is conscious, part more unconscious. And then there is what is referred to as “transitional objects”. These objects represent that which you describe in your post Sarah. They are connected or “attached” to something, someplace (internal or external), or someone. As long as we are aware of what we need and are able to continue to engage with others in our lives and move forward in life, don’t judge or put a negative spin on it. As you say, “Don't get rid of it. You have a storage area [read as a metaphor] that can hold it for you for a while. Keep it until you don't feel like you need it any more. We all need something to help us feel grounded when we're about to take a leap out of our comfort zone.”

    Great share @Aaron Skogen. Definitely a strong and important message. @Christian Farber your story needs to be heard and I am glad it was posted on a site working to fight stigma.

    This is a powerful story indeed @Christian Farber, well done. I wholeheartedly agree with your perspective on treatment and your strong advocacy for early intervention. For those who suffer from mental health diseases, intervention is life altering. You talk for a while about regrets. I am certain you would not be the man, husband, father, et. al., that you are, had you not battled this demon. You would certainly be a different person. I only mention the regret portion as I believe regret to be a fruitless and ultimately, negative emotion. Your experience has granted you many gifts, of this I am sure, and your writing is a gift to the rest of us. No regrets! Thank you for a great article. And thank you @John White, MBA for sharing!

    SCORE ONE FOR MAN AND ZERO FOR TECHNOLOGICAL DEVICES - An important perspective to read: “…the fact is that when scientists are interpreting data from an fMRI machine, they’re not looking at the actual brain. As Richard Chirgwin reports for The Register, what they’re looking at is an image of the brain divided into tiny ‘voxels’, then interpreted by a computer program…because software is the thing that’s actually interpreting the data from the fMRI scans, your results are only as good as your computer.”
