Psychological Inspiration

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi believes positive psychology needs to focus more on the “study of strength and virtue” as opposed to mental illness. It’s how does an emphasis on positive emotion, or strengths creates a different environment within which people can thrive.

Martin E .P. Seligman identified 3 pathways to happiness:

  1. The Pleasant Life, Think of moments in your life when you experience sensory pleasures and positive emotions

  2. Through connection with internal or external activity: The Engaged Life, leads to a feeling of feeling deep enjoyment.

  3. Through personal meaning: The Meaningful Life, this pathway refers to the ability to experience happiness outside the scope of oneself

Testing

ZOOM Meeting - anonymous Call

An anonymous call test occurs on the ZOOM app between 2 friends of mine who are from different countries and do not know each other. After the call ended, they contacted me.

Feedbacks:

This way gives me the opportunity to provide my point of view on different perspectives that people put forward. Being a people person helps me understand the situation a person is in. I feel delighted when they take my advice which in turn helps them in shaping a better person. I hope to continue this journey of helping people!

It is special for me because it has helped me to keep self-motivated. Also provided me with a broad sense of perspective after knowing the variety of problems and anxiety faced by other users. It helps me, as it gives me comfort and satisfaction in my mind and soul that I have the ability to help someone.

WhatsApp Group - Question

I make a group of two strangers who don’t know each other and also from different countries. One of them has the ability to send a message. The 2nd person was listening.

Feedbacks:

I am a very reserved person and can’t even open up to my friends when m stressed. I don’t feel like troubling up my friends with my problems. Today everywhere people are just spreading negativity but here it's different even the broken people can helping each other in getting up and facing up their fears.

Call From Private Number

I know him well, he was in my school many years ago.

He said:

I am a gay male teenager from Tripoli city in Lebanon, a Muslim city where they throw gay men in jail for being gay. I personally am not religious but that’s not that relevant in my story….. Etc…..

I said:

Never be afraid to be what you are and what you want to be… etc…..

Feedbacks:

I really feel satisfied that I (maybe) do help him in a way, maybe I let him feel that there is one on the other side of the planet who is accepting his issue… to not feel lonely.

All I need is a sheet of paper and something to write with, and then I can turn the world upside down.
