Why lack of courage causes most psychological disorders

What causes a psychological disorder

Because of the nature of my work i managed to speak with so many people who were unfortunate to have severe psychological disorders. A psychological disorder usually happens when few different , and sometimes unrelated, factors come together.

The same disorder can be caused by a different group of factors or a different arrangement of the same factors. From my experience i noticed that the one factor that seems to be common among most disorders is lack of courage. See also What causes psychological disorders.

You might wonder what does lack of courage has to do with OCD, Paranoia or or even schizophrenia. In this article i will explain to you why lack of courage is an integral ingredient , if not the most important one, in the formation of most psychological disorders.

Why lack of courage causes most psychological disorders

Anything that gets into the person's conscious awareness passes to the conscious mind while anything that doesn't reach a person's awareness goes to the subconscious mind.

I am pretty sure your mood changed before for no apparent reason. In such a case some kind of a trigger was passed to the subconscious mind, without your conscious awareness, and as a result your mood changed. See The reason your emotions keep changing all the time

I am also pretty sure that you experienced a conscious mood change that happened as a result of consciously going through a bad event (such as losing your job for example).

Now the very important question here is: why do some things bypass the conscious mind directly into the subconscious mind?

There are several reasons for this such as lack of awareness, not having enough knowledge, poor perception and lack of courage. Let's focus on lack of courage for now.

In the Ultimate guide to developing Super powers i said that when your brain realizes that you don't have enough courage to face something it sometimes sends it directly to your subconscious mind while bypassing your conscious mind.

Let me give you an example to make this clear. If a person is too afraid of the future and is not willing to take serious steps to fix their lives then they might develop fear of darkness or of ghosts.

Because the person didn't have enough courage their brain had to release the intense emotions of fear through a different channel that has nothing to do with the original problem. See This is where the ghosts in your house come from.

How courage can prevent a psychological disorder from developing

When your brain realizes that you are willing to face a problem directly it sends it to you in a direct form. In such a case the problem will be communicated to you in the form of unwanted emotions such sadness, stress, anxiety or even depression. See Where do emotions come from.

If on the other hand your brain found that you are not brave enough to face the issue directly then it will send you the signal in an encoded form or a more subtle one such as a panic attack or a psychological disorder that seems to have no explanation. See Why do you get panic attacks out of nowhere.

It's your attitude towards life and towards your problems that will determine whether you will get a direct signal from your mind or whether you will get an indirect one in the form of a psychological disorder.
