Let me answer two questions here:

  1. Why does this blog exist?

  2. Why should you care?

I am trying to explain everything going on in the world to reduce uncertainty - the only way to resolve mental health problems. By profession, I am a Software developer and have overcome extreme poverty.

All of the traditional therapy practices assume a privileged background, hence I failed to get any results from them. Also, they are ineffective and require years of rigorous efforts like meditation and breathwork practices. I developed a novel way of tackling this mental health problem and in this blog, I am sharing my findings.

In my experience, all mental health problems are manifestations of perceived feelings of lack of power. That happens when our brain can't understand the events going on around us. It tries to fill the information gap, leading to the issues.

If we can reduce uncertainty and feel powerful enough to handle our problems, all mental health problems will be gone. As our brain will not have any reason to feel miserable.

I have summarized human psychology in three sentences:

1. Humans only act out of their self-interests. That might be conscious or unconscious.
2. The subconscious mind is focused on ensuring our survival. It prioritizes tasks that it feels would help with our survival. 
3. To understand a human we have to look at two things - Power and Motivation. How much power do they hold and what is their motivation?

Using these three principles I have resolved all my issues - Social media addiction, Game addiction, Anxiety, Perfectionism, Laziness, Making my own decisions, Taking more risks, Hero worship, Quitting sugar, Getting confidence and self-esteem, People-pleasing behaviors, Staying motivated without external support, Jealousy, Improving communication skills, Getting fluent in English, etc.
