"Learned Helplessness"
I just came across

^"Learned Helplessness"
I just came across this phrase this morning. It's a concept I never heard of before but it makes sense. It can be summed up in the phrase, 'What's the point of trying? It's going to fail anyway because of me/the economy/dad won't let me/boss will fire me/people will laugh at me/I'm stupid" The behavior exists both in animals and humans. Learned Helplessness and depression go hand in hand. Hope is the cure. I love learning something new!^
