Bring on the blues...

Read an interesting article about how we humans tend to adapt quickly to happiness, taking things which make us happy for granted, thereby ensuring they don't make us so happy anymore. The same article also states that we react to sadness and other negative emotions through our primeval brain. So having survived the trauma of evolution, we still seek or rather are comfortable with negative emotions.

So should we treat entire humanity for PSTD?? (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

    long article..but got the jist
    post traumatic stress disorder??? absolutely girl..life is nothing but total trauma!!
    this is interesting cos freud ropogated the whole hedonism and pleasure principle theory..and this speaks about the human goal for ultimate sorrow (badly phrased)

    i dunno....its all the same dman thing - just another emotion! ppl crib if ur too happy..calling u nicknames like 'hyperactiv puppy', ppl crib if ur too sad..
    u had jagjit singh saying "tum itna kyu muskura rahe ho, kya gam hain jo tum chhupa rahe ho)
    Phreak this means "Why r u to be the smiling so the much? what is the sadness you are to be the hiding?"

    so its all nice to analyse these things when ur a freaking psychologist with research money and blah....or whe ur job;ess enough to eb reading long artciles when ur supposed to be working..

    k this has been a long one..i gtg...

    yeah phreak..sou told me u took forever to interpret those lines..
    brother barker (my fave rj who used to work for radio city)used to love to interpret songs the way u do, according to him, when ronan keating says "u say it best, when u say nothing at all" is another way of saying "shut up woman!!! u talk so much!"
