The Modern World's Solace

Being in a bad place mentally is extremely difficult when going through it alone, however, the good thing about the modern world is it offers three main sources for solace:

  1. Psychiatric medicine
  2. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
  3. Psychotherapy.

Psychiatric Medicine

When administered correctly, the medicine we get from our psychiatrist helps correct the chemical imbalances of our brain that help us get through our daily lives.

The side effects of these may range from nausea to sleepiness, but with it, we'd be able to function... more or less.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy

These are psychiatric sessions that last around 6 to 10 hours where we learn techniques to argue rationally with our irrational mind.

Our internal persecutors like paranoia, low self-esteem, shame, and panic, will be tackled. We'll then be able to distinguish facts from irrational thoughts.

At a first glance, it seems like psychotherapy is not an option you'd like to get yourself involved in since it requires a large amount of your time, active engagement, and sustained emotional efforts.

However, psychotherapy is a great way to correct our self-ignorance in the most profound ways. It provides a safe space to let ourselves heal consciously.

Why Psychotherapy Works

  1. We are able to make our unconscious feelings become conscious. Since experiencing trauma we are unable to grasp what we truly long for. We learn here crucial ideas and feelings that come from our unconscious to be exposed and healed.
  2. Transference. Here we learn where our impulses come from and develop less self-defeating ways of interacting with people moving forward.
  3. It is most likely our first good relationship. The therapist is the first truly supportive and reliable person we've encountered.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
