Do we Over Medicalize our Emotions

I came across an article in the Daily Mail on Friday, May 19th that discussed the Princess of Wales’ warning. She emphasized the importance of not over-medicalizing our emotions, particularly for young individuals who tend to adopt labels quickly. The Princess also pointed out how in ancient times, humans lived in smaller communities and were better equipped to handle the fight or flight response. In contrast, modern society and social media have significantly impacted mental health. The Princess urged children to be taught mental health skills to assist them in all areas of life.


I fully support the idea expressed in this statement. Throughout my work, I have encountered a great deal of scepticism towards the concept of self-healing, emotional management, and self-care. It seems that in many cases, our natural response to stress is constantly activated, not necessarily due to any personal shortcomings, but rather because of the pervasive negative messaging in our environment, including social media, news outlets, and other forms of media. The overwhelming focus on doom and gloom can be quite discouraging.

As individuals, we have the power to improve our lives by utilizing various resources available to us. It’s important to remain open-minded and willing to explore different mediums that can aid in our personal growth.

I couldn’t agree more with the comment regarding children. It really warmed my heart and gave me hope. It’s amazing to think that having knowledge about emotional support could have such a positive impact on the lives and well-being of children who are going through tough times.

Many of us can take steps to help ourselves, and there are numerous methods available. The key is to remain receptive to exploring new options.
