“OPEN SECRETS” MAKE PEOPLE BEHAVE AS IF EVERYONE, “IN THE KNOW”, HAS A LOSS OF TOUCH WITH REALITY, A FORM OF MASS HYPNOSIS, OR MASS PSYCHOSIS.

It seems as if a snap of a finger would jolt these people out of this trance, but it will not. People’s shame, embarrassment, disbelief, defense mechanisms, and egos allow these aberrant behaviors to continue, sometimes for years. Charles Tadros, M.D. July 20, 2021 Saint Louis, Missouri

ADVERSE EFFECTS OF SUCCESS AND HAVING POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT INCLUDE THAT WE MAY BECOME PANICKED ABOUT MAKING MISTAKES, WORRIED ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO MAINTAIN THE PACE TO CONTINUE REACHING THESE ACHIEVEMENTS, AFRAID OF EMBARRASSING OURSELVES, ANXIOUS ABOUT LOSING ONE’S IDENTITY, BELIEF THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO CHANGE COURSE OR TO EXPLORE, AND FEARFUL OF LOSING THE ACCOLADES WHEN WE LOSE ALL THAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED.

MAYBE, WHEN IT IS PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY SAFE, WE SHOULD SLOW DOWN TO LOOK AND SEE WHY OUR FIRST INSTINCT WAS TO LOOK AWAY.

Others’ suffering and loneliness Our unhappiness Our anger Our shame and embarrassments Our relationships Our lives in disarray Our wanton consumerism Charles Tadros, M.D. May 4, 2021
