Helplessness is the feeling that someone experiences when he or she finds themselves unable to change something that is upsetting them. Circumstances could  be physical, emotional or situational and not being in control of them could make one lose hope, lose focus from their work and also cause disorders like depression and other mental and physical challenges.

Why we feel helpless?

  1. Death in the family

This is certainly one factor that no human has control over.  Grief from a loss can impair daily functioning and cause you to feel lonely and helpless.

  1. A run-down immune system

Physical ailments can make one angsty. Some take more time than others to heal and the incapability can make one feel powerless.

  1. Anxiety and panic attacks

Life can sometimes become overwhelming. Panic attacks and anxiety issues are on a rise owing to competition and the constant need for success. This could make you feel like you are not at par with others and make you feel helpless.

How to deal with helplessness?

  1. Understand what is causing the trauma

Become aware of yourself and your unique treasures, thereby plummeting your feelings of helplessness.

  1. Keep away from people who program you

The things you hear and get involved in can shape your beliefs and affect your life. Keep away from people who have nothing to give you, but a truckload of negative and harsh feelings.

  1. Learn new skills

Be curious to learn anything new. Read new books and get inspired by them, exercise, paint and indulge in art and craft. Keeping oneself busy with activities is the best way to eradicate the feelings of helplessness.

Everyone at some point goes through such situations where they cannot cope up. If the problem persists for longer than usual and if you cannot find a way to deal with them, the best thing to do is to see a professional and seek medical guidance.

When you are falling off with helplessness, it can be hard to know if it is time to see a therapist or a psychologist about the problem. Living in Wellbeing’s health experts makes the sessions easy, engaging and reliving. Get in touch with us today and face all your issues headstrong.
