Lock your ear

Image

 

We can not lock our ear. We have to listen everything but what you let enter in your brain is perfectly under your control. Many times you feel sad by criticism or bad words about you. But before you let such things spoil your day do one thing. think about the matter twice. Is it true or not? If its true don’t be sad try to improve yourself..and if its not true just trow it out of your mind.. everyone has their own opinion and thinking..it is not necessary that they all are right..so don’t take everything seriously…this will help you avoid unnecessary stress and depression..and if someone has decided to hurt you by their words this accessory in the image  is worth trying 🙂

There are many kinds of fear and phobias but some of them are really surprising and weird here I am giving information about one of such phobia…

Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia

– Fear of long words

Image

It is possible to develop a phobia of virtually anything, no matter how innocuous it might actually be. The fear of long words is certainly uncommon, but its rarity does not change how devastating it can be for those who suffer from it. The common name for this fear, however, is a bit sarcastic in nature.

Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia is probably taken from the root word “sesquipedalian,” which means “long word.” Therefore, sesquipedaliophobia is technically more correct. But somewhere along the line, someone added references to the hippopotamus, a large animal, and monsters to make the word sound even more intimidating. How ironic that the name for the fear of long words is, itself, 35 letters long.

Effects of Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia

Like all phobias, the fear of long words varies dramatically in severity and effects from sufferer to sufferer. Some people are only afraid of extremely long, multisyllabic words or those that are quite obscure. Others fear even moderate-length common words.

The effects of this fear on daily life also vary significantly between sufferers. A college professor with a fear of Latin-based words or a gardener who is afraid of lengthy plant names might have serious difficulties at work. Someone whose job and hobbies are less driven by long words may feel no serious effects at all.

In children and teens, the fear of long words can be crippling. Spelling bees, science classes and research projects generally involve the memorization of long words with complicated definitions. Kids with this phobia might experience classroom anxiety and lower test grades. Isolation, depression and social phobias are possible, particularly in students at academically competitive schools. Students who cannot overcome this fear might have difficulty with college applications and ultimately struggle with higher education.

Symptoms of Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia

While many phobias lead to such external symptoms as shaking, freezing in place or sweating, the symptoms of the fear of long words may be more subtle. If you have this fear, you might mentally lock up when confronted with particularly long words. You may limit your speaking and writing vocabulary and simply brush off textbooks and scholarly works. Excuses are common, including such phrases as “That author’s too pretentious” or “I never did have a head for science.”

Children might develop school-related phobias or appear to simply lose interest in school. Rebellious behavior, “forgetting” homework assignments and speaking with an extremely limited vocabulary are possible symptoms.

Since the fear of long words is rare and the symptoms can mirror those of so many other conditions, it is vital to seek advice from a trained mental health professional for any symptoms that begin to impact your life. However, in many people, the symptoms are mild and do not affect the activities of daily living.

Managing the Fear of Long Words

For many people, the fear of long words is mild. If yours does not significantly impact your life, making a conscious effort to expand your vocabulary can help. Look for opportunities to learn new words through reading or everyday conversation. If you come across an unfamiliar word, look it up. In many cases, familiarity can ease the symptoms of anxiety.

If your symptoms are more serious, impacting your daily life, then professional assistance may be needed. A mental health professional can help you work through your fears and provide coping strategies for managing your symptoms during the treatment process.

It’s not first or last it’s whole Journey

Daily Prompt: First!

Tell us about your first day at something — your first day of school, first day of work, first day living on your own, first day blogging, first day as a parent, whatever.

Whenever we hear about first day it doesn’t come alone it comes with excitement, nervousness, anticipation, new things, new experience etc. etc. But do we really enjoy a day or the whole process or journey?? Take it first day of college or professional life, first day as parent or lover, first day of cooking or playing. We don’t only remember that we remember the whole series of step towards something.

First day of school is always boring as we don’t know anyone, we don’t have any friends and the whole day we have to listen introductions to subject or teacher but think of the day may be 20th day or 50th day…there are so many friends, there may be some interesting topics to be learned, there may be some appreciation from teacher for our good progress. Isn’t it more important??

Let’s talk about love many of us might remember the first ay of accidental meet with soul mate or first day of marriage proposal but after some year does it matter to you? or you would love to remember about 15th day when he/she gave you some surprise or when he/she admired your efforts? when he/she cooked a meal for you?

And what about first day of success? If you got an award do you remember that day only or you will remember past many days when you dreamt about your success and started efforts towards achieving your goal.

So my point is though first day is first, it is nothing in compare to the whole sweet Journey. Have a blessed day ahead.
