Some people feel that current work is competition, competition can promote social progress and development, competition can overcome inertia, and can also make people full of hope and move forward. Competition is so love and hate, you can’t stop it.
However, competition also causes people to have anxiety, restlessness, emotional disturbance, physical and mental fatigue, psychological imbalance and other problems in a long-term stressful life. Especially for losers, due to the large gap between subjective desire and objective reality, depression, Mental disorders, worries, and even suicide are serious problems.
So, how can we maintain mental health in a competitive society?
First of all, there should be a correct understanding of competition.
We should know that if there is competition, there will be winners and losers. For successful people, of course, they are happy, full of spring breeze, and elated, and their hard work and hard work have paid off. For losers, the key is to deal with failure correctly. Don’t be discouraged, sad, and unable to lift your head from now on. You must have an enterprising spirit that is unwilling to lag behind, sum up lessons, and move forward courageously.
Second, we must have an objective and appropriate assessment of ourselves, and strive to narrow the gap between the “ideal self” and the “real self”.
When formulating goals, we should neither overthink ourselves nor underestimate ourselves. We should combine social reality and personal conditions, and organically combine long-term goals with short-term goals. It is the only way to do it step by step in a down-to-earth manner. Only in this way can it help the ultimate realization of the “ideal self”.
Furthermore, in competition, we must be good at judging the situation and avoiding weaknesses.
A person’s needs, interests and talents are multifaceted. If you pay attention to digging, it is likely to create a new situation of “the East is not bright, the West is bright” and “the willows are dark and the flowers are bright in another village”. This will not only increase the chance of success and reduce setbacks, but also lay the foundation for further development and victory.
Of course, competition may not be everything you want. In addition to your own subjective efforts, it also depends on many factors such as social environment and interpersonal relationships. That is to say, “It’s up to people to make things, and it’s up to heaven to make things happen.” But the most important thing for people is to have lofty goals and fighting spirit.
