Extensive Reading (Chapter 1) - Jun Hong

What are your thoughts and feelings about being depression, loneliness, heartbreaks, being different from your peers, and having to put up a front? How do/would you deal with some of these issues.

I, for one, has experience depression, loneliness, heartbreaks, being different from my peers, and having to put up a front. It is not a comfortable feeling. Lying to yourself that you have no friends, no one cares about you, thus having to put up a front so that people will not see that you are different. Those are emotional disease that can happen to anyone, regardless of emotional background, if they are not true to themselves or believe that no one still cares about you anymore because of the fact that the person is different. If not "treated" or seek consultation as soon as possible, they can develop into emotional disorders, for example, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, behavioural disorders or personality disorders. For the fact that anyone can contract that "emotional disease" makes in very common, especially in this drastically growing human population. Of all the "emotional diseases", I believe the hardest to recover from are heartbreaks. Heartbreaks are sudden storms of conflicting emotions, whereby leaving the heart-broken dazed or shocked. In extreme cases, the heart-broken can be in an emotion-induced coma due to trauma to the brain from the conflicting and sudden emotions.

Though I have "recovered", from these situation, it could come back again if emotions are not properly controlled. Prevention is better than cure. In order to prevent the event from happening, though it would be impossible, you would have to train your mind and adapt to sudden changes in the environment. You would have to learn to not act rashly and discover the fact that people still care. The process differs from people to people because everyone is unique and you must learn that. Do what you like, discover your hobbies and find other people who are interested or you are interested in, but there are still boundaries in which what can be done. One habit that has developed in the world that has caused these "emotional diseases" is that people are negative. You must learn to be optimistic and see the positive side of thing, like instead of half-empty, half-full can be substituted in. Last thing is, you have to learn to be honest to yourself. You can deceive others, but you cannot deceive yourself, you are what you are. The thing is make more friends and interact with them, so that you may be able to "recover" from your losses much easily.

Disclaimer: Please do not infer anything from here rashly and any facts that may be wrong are not taken into my account, for this is my opinion after all.

  1. I give you a 5-6. Some grammatical errors here and there, but in the end the intention you are trying to convey comes through and makes itself shown.
