10 Things Only People Who Often Get Depressed After Watching Great Movies Would Understand

10 Things Only People Who Often Get Depressed After Watching Great Movies Would Understand

It is not rare for people to experience emotional outbursts after seeing a really captivating movie. Whatever it is termed to be, post-movie depression is actually an experience, a period, a feeling and a new identity. Being stuck with the pictures and the warmth of the characters has a way of making you want more out of the movie. This strong feeling does come with an attachment, and because of this, people who become depressed after watching a movie understand the following things.

1. They want to see the world from a different perspective.

Movies have a way of taking the viewer away from their present state and floating them someplace else. They want to be able to find the world from another perspective and nurture this feeling beyond simply watching a movie.

2. They understand that they are different.

Trying to connect the dots and being in tune with their emotions is a personal thing. They can’t easily relate this with others, because they are different and unique in a way. It just exposes how sensitive they can be and how deeply affected they are by the pictures they see.

3. They want to repeat the process over again.

The depression holds them and captures them. What is inviting and appealing is either to see the movie again or continue the process. There is always an end to every picture, but they often wish more and more scenes would keep appearing after the credits roll.

4. They want to be live out the movie.

This could sound figurative in a sense, but it’s just because they want to experience more of the movie. They download the soundtrack, they Google the title and read about the actors, they buy fan t-shirts, and they master the lines and idiosyncrasies of the characters. They simply want to live out the movie and recreate the experience.

5. They are exposed.

Their emotions and expectations are revealed. For some, it can lead to disappointment, disgust or misunderstanding. They are depressed because they expect more out of reality, which they found in the movie, so now that it’s over, they feel deep disdain and displeasure.

6. They feel unfulfilled.

They believe they can become better or can get more out of life. They actually want more out of the world that surrounds them and thus, they yearn for more.

7. They feel alone.

They believe that they are alone in dealing with their emotions. They can’t answer many questions at the moment, and perhaps they are even angry with themselves for feeling the way they are feeling. However bad or good or exciting, they are left puzzled and bewildered at the sudden reaction they feel.

8. They want to reach out.

If only people could cuddle with them and offer them an explanation or try to reach out to them. If only they could be seen not as feeble but as strong for being so loving and expectant. If only someone could understand. Yes they want to reach out and find someone who could understand and help them find answers.

9. Their feelings are broken.

Many could cite how their feelings and emotions were bruised. While some may see depression as a hyperbole, it is important to understand that every person who watches a movie and is depressed after suddenly has a psychological twist attached to their story.

10. They have their own journeys.

Yes, this depression offers them an experience—a journey to be stronger and to see their selves in a different way. They pass through a period and a phase or a stage. They do recover and they are able to channel their thoughts into something else. They can be happy again when they see another movie and could be captured by it. It is all a sequential thing. They won’t get stuck; they simply appreciate the journey every movie they are captivated by puts them through.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
