We can find a solution by noticing what we cannot realize in life: dissociative disorder.


According to Edgard Dale’s cone of life, our retention rate for the actions we read and hear and take a passive stance is about 20%, the moment we transfer what we have learned, we can increase our chances of remembering information by almost 70%. . Though it seems easy to remember, sometimes I’m around “I don’t remember what happened last week”, “I forgot what I ate today”, “I can’t remember a single scene from the movie I watched” I hear your comments. While the information we have received is during periods when you feel well and your physical/mental well-being is generally good, this figure drops even more, especially during periods of mental fatigue. In fact, sometimes events and threats that we want to avoid can make us immune or even indifferent to events. Stanford University research says that 3 out of 4 people can remain dissociated for hours, days, or even weeks after a particularly traumatic event. Many people may encounter this situation and fail to name it. Many people who experience dissociation share a common experience; a feeling that your body and mind are separate from each other, or a feeling that you are not really in the world you live in. Biologically chemical changes, especially in the cognitive and memory-retaining parts of the brain, are also other symptoms that these people show.

Today, we can be influenced by past traumatic experiences or new traumas without realizing it, especially when we are at a busy pace and busy. For those who are experiencing dissociation, which I think is a problem that others notice from the outside, but do not want support because the person living inside does not know about it, of course, there are solutions after realizing this event. It is very important to be aware of this situation, which we can notice as a result of effective feedback, listening to ourselves instead of focusing on the outside world, and which can be corrected without turning into a serious behavioral disorder.

So what can be done for people who are experiencing this and suffering from it? First of all, it is the healthiest method of contacting a therapist, given the frequency of the situation, its duration, and its impact on daily life. However, there are some methods that you can try before going to a therapist. The most common and effective suggestion of our time is to return to the moment, to turn mindfulness practices into a habit at the pace of life. It can be experienced not only by those who suffer from this disease, but also by anyone who needs to slow down in order to speed up, think more clearly and refresh themselves. It’s also a great way to expand our social circle with people we love, especially asking people we trust to give us feedback as we dive into places. There are various methods that can be suitable for everyone, such as returning to habits that really bring pleasure, remembering the good things we left behind, stop worrying about things that we cannot remember, and gain new experiences.

I believe in the importance of working on yourself to make room for the better, I hope this will be helpful to those who have faced similar situations.
