CEREBRAL ACTIONS: DEPRESSIVE THOUGHTS SHOW IN YOUR ACTIONS

Image result for depression

“Being able to shift your thoughts, will ultimately put you in a better place.”


You ever the hear phrase that your thoughts become your actions. That whatever you conjure up in your mind have a tendency to manifest itself in how you react in situations. So if you think that you are not going to succeed and you believe in that enough it will show itself in your work. And that is how powerful the mind can be. You can use it to benefit yourself in life or it can be your greatest enemy. And generally, the people who look down on themselves are those battling with depression and anxiety issues. From a person with experience dealing with depression in life, it’s a come and go illness.

Recently I checked the statistics, and from the information gathered by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness effecting Americans of roughly 20% of the American population. This same association gathered more evidence that also showed that the following also exist with people of mental illness which are various forms of depression:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), which is the excessive worrying of potential issues that could arise where the person could be at lose of health, money, work, or family. And at times the issues they are worried about happening, may never actually take place. Yet, the people worry none the less causing them to develop a mental illness.

  • Panic Disorder (PD), which are panic attacks that come form out of nowhere, where the person is constantly in fear of the attack happening again.

  • Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), is an illness where the person has an intense fear of being judged especially when placed in social environments where they have to interact with people.

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), effects people in a way where they people who are obsessive have these thoughts that cause anxiety and depression, and the compulsive aspect aids them in designing consistent behavior that relieves them of this anxiety.

  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), is a debilitating condition that arises from people who have bare witness to traumatic events such as terrorist attacks, serious accidents, or most notably, warfare.

Well, with these various mental illness that cause our emotions to become actions, what are ways to channel this depression. For me writing and putting my thoughts and feelings into the world is one way. Once you see how many other people deal with trauma, you’re able to cope knowing you aren’t alone. And that people are just as afraid to come out as you. But in writing, I also was able to channel my negative emotions into characters of stories for my screenplays and books. In channeling these anxieties into characters, in order for the character to get better, I have to make the script or book work by showing progress in the character. This inevitably made me a better problem solver of self.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
