According to specialists from the Moscow Service for Psychological Assistance to the Population, more than 75 percent of all calls are made by women. This is largely due to the fact that, from childhood, boys are usually taught to endure all adversity in silence, clenching their teeth and clenching their will in a fist. Why is it important to take care of your emotional state, regardless of gender, says psychologist Olga Akimova.
Women are historically “keepers of the hearth”, they are tuned in to relationships: with parents, partners, children, neighbors. Ladies are usually ready to go talk to a psychologist and discuss problems. A man, on the other hand, is not always interested in such communication, he needs to know specifically and precisely why he goes to a stranger, spends his time and energy.
Therefore, men, before signing up for a psychologist, have to take one step more than women: to accept that you can come to a specialist just to talk about yourself and your life.
- In our society, men from childhood were taught to endure all adversity in silence, gritting their teeth and clenching their will in a fist. But now this attitude has changed somewhat, and modern children have more rights to express feelings, regardless of their gender. And this is correct, - says the specialist.
Nowadays, concern for one's emotional well-being is becoming natural for all categories of the population. Therefore, those who already understand that comfort can also be psychological, and this is satisfaction with their life in general, make an appointment with a psychologist.
- People are social creatures, we look at our life through the lens of the community. And a psychologist is a different person, moreover, specially trained and tuned, like a musical instrument, to perceive the delicate strings of the soul. It will help you not to be alone with difficulties, to share your experiences. Agree, it is much easier to act when nothing hurts than when there is something that interferes with movement, the specialist concluded.
There are situations in life that a person cannot look at from the outside and understand the true cause of the problem. Trying to solve it on his own, he can only get more confused. The psychologist will help you find the cause of the problem and solve it.
