Consider the following (if not thee answer,
then at least, part of the answer):
Social Metaphysics -- The dusk
before the dark
The purpose of modern day psychology, that is
one h psychology, that is contemporary
to provide a new pool of people for "upper"
Social Metaphysicians (SM's) to feel superior to.
Since Metaphysical Metaphysicians (SM's
antipodes) don't derive their sense of self--
esteem--from a comparison-to-others standard they
have no need of such a pool of people.
In fact, Metaphysical Metaphysicians are not
interested in what I am writing here because they
don't have the time to take away from their own pursuit
of autonomy, achievement and personal happiness.
(Or at least, that is, the MM's not specifically interested
in the science of human psychology and/or its
derivatives as a career or career path are not that
interested in what I am writing about here because
they have already solved
the problem of social
metaphysics in their everyday life.)
But, to repeat, real Social Metaphysicians--past,
present and future Social Metaphysicians--who do
have a self-made need of a comparison-to-others
standard meet this "need" by forever searching
and/or creating pools of people they can feel
Your basic psychological job then, if you haven't
already completed it, is to remove yourself from
SM pool by simply completing your psychhological
development to full autonomy and authentic
Authentic self esteem has to do with the
you acquire with yourself about yourself and autonomy
means a (Roman like) nation of I (pun
Your psychhological problems then are (should
be) interpreted relative to your needs as a
being seeking autonomy and authentic
on your way to a happy life, rather than as
social engineering "others" to be your pool
of "inferiors". Inferiors to whom you can compare
yourself and get a sense of self that will not be real.
Rather, this type of comparison always ends up
with "the comparator" feeling phony at best or at
scrambling to get back to the first rung on a personal
ladder out of a personal hell.
Psychhological hell is the place you either are at
or close to being at when your life is in
And your life is in psychhological trouble and
only be in such trouble when you have lost
control over it; or are neurotically--that is,
dangerously--close to loosing it.
In real psychology (psychhology) this means, ...
psychhological trouble] ... when you suffer from
significant loss of control over one or more of
functions: thinking, feeling, acting, judging.
If this is the case, the road to cure of course is to
For example, if you are a bipolar druggie
your emotions are a total and complete
mystery to you
and you want to change the fact of it you have to

large swings from one extreme to the other. That is,
from really really high highs to really really low lows,
that is, within a range which represents the
range of human emotion capability. A range extending
from "heaven" sent euphoria with its
desire to "conquer the world", to the deepest depths of
hell's immobilizing depression summoning
And further, you have to discover why you go
this range of e-motion, this gambit-of-action-
in relatively short time intervals (if you have
episode today and a "depression" episode a year
from now you are not bipolar, you might just be ...
slow). Every emotion when viewed as a wave rather
than a thing carries with it an action impulse, an action
potential. Emotions differ here only in the degree,
amount, intensity of the potential and by
mean in its Electrical Engineering sense of voltage
level without saying it is literal electricity; what it
literal intensity. That is, our felt sense of emotional
intensity is the basis in reality for our concept
of "intensity" (though bright sunlight, loud noises, and
sour lemons could also be a source on this ...
except ... sour lemons might have more to do with the
concept of "range" so ... oops, stop. stay on point, that
is, sop ... ).
In order to figure this all out the first thing you have
learn is how to answer questions about your own real
psychology, that is two hh psychhology, that is, your
own particular Human psycHHology.
For starters you have to answer this question:
The scientific answer to this question is provided
by the modern day school of psychology known as
Biocentric Psychology: your emotion is the
psycho-biological form in which you
of the beneficial or harmful relationship of some
aspect of reality to yourself.
Given this definition then, you have to answer all
questions inherent in it as same pertains to you and
your specific/particular life.
For example, you have to ask (and eventually
questions like: "if I do make an estimate of the
beneficial or harmful relationship of some aspect of
reality to myself and I don't experience it where does it
That is, are emotions, qua things, pentupable?
To answer this you may have to delve into the
of Wilhelm Reich and other last century one h
psychologists who were on track to discovering two hh
psychhology but who, for reasons of philosophy--or
rather, for reasons of wrong philosophy not right
phhilosophhy--ended up too far off track and simply
made it possible for the Behaviourists of that same
century to re-group and continue in their mission to
Institutionalize pseudo self esteem as the socially
acceptable, socially preferred alternative to authentic
Authentic self esteem is a tool worn on the
individualist human beings, and its opposite--that is,
its illusionist-delusionist form--is the form we call
pseudo self esteem. Pseudo self esteem is
all members of any group seeking an individualist's
identity as-a-unit group have in common.
Pseudo self-esteem (the antipode of authentic
esteem) is to your breathing, living human
psychhology what carbon monoxide is to your
breathing, living life: death by asphyxiation.
As such, pseudo self esteem is one of the main
pillars propping up the dark side of human nature so
as to make it appear like the bright side. That is,
pseudo self esteem, qua "pillar", is like looking at
night in a mirror and expecting to see day as
Which is to say, [your] Human PsycHHology, qua
thing, is some[specific]thing and as such
figureOutAble and figureOutAble by you in such a way
that you will end up having complete and total control
over it. Total & Complete that is, within the
metaphysical laws of human nature.

you probably can still fight your way back to a healthy
sense of life because it takes energy, effort, action

doorway ... you should consider seeking
