Psychosocial Development

Eric Erickson

I will talk about of Erikson’s stages of psychosocial development as well as my own idea for this.

We all know that Eric Erickson’s theory believes that personality develops in a series of stages. Also He describes the impact of social experience across the whole lifespan of a person.

One of the main elements of Erikson’s psychosocial stage theory is the development of ego identity. The sense of oneself as a distinct continuous entity that was EGO identity means. How does this develop? It is developed through social interaction.

According to Erikson, our ego identity is constantly changing due to new experience and information we acquire in our daily interactions with others. In addition to ego identity, He also believed that a sense of competence also motivates behaviors and actions. Each stage in Erikson’s theory is concerned with becoming competent in an area of life. If the stage is handled well, the person will feel a sense of mastery, which he sometimes referred to as ego strength or ego quality. If the stage is managed poorly, the person will emerge with a sense of inadequacy.

In each stage, Erikson believed people experience a conflict that serves as a turning point in development. In his view, these conflicts are centered on either developing a psychological quality or failing to develop that quality. During these times, the potential for personal growth is high, but so is the potential for failure.

..  As to my understanding we have to options in life. To handle things well or should I say handle conflicts well and become masters of our own craft or managed these conflicts poorly and result to being inadequate to oneself.

We all experience conflicts, problems, trial or often we call disagreements in life. We have our own choice, to face this or walk away and feel that sense of inadequacy in us.

Are we going to deal these conflicts maturely or deal with these in a childish way?

Life is a wonderful gift of God and this life is should be enjoyed with HIM, friends and many great opportunities.

Live life to the fullest and know that we are blessed!

My Prayer…

this is my prayer

Gracious Lord Jesus, it is simple for me to speak of your forgiveness, even to ask for it and to thank you for it. But do I truly think I’m forgiven? Do I experience the freedom that comes from the assurance which you have cleansed me from my sins? Or do I live as if I’m “semi-forgiven”? Despite the fact that I’ve put my faith in you and confessed my sins, do I live as sin still has power over me? Do I try to prove myself to you, as if I may well be able to earn a lot more forgiveness?

Dear Lord, though I believe at 1 level that you have forgiven me, this incredible truth wants to penetrate my heart in new methods. Help me to know with fresh conviction that I am totally and finally forgiven, not simply because of anything I’ve done, but since of what you might have performed for me.

Might I live right now as a forgiven individual, opening my heart to you, picking not to sin since the power of sin has been broken by your salvation.

All praise Be to you, Lord Jesus, for your matchless forgiveness! Amen.

Tangled- One Favorite Film

Production year: 2010

Cast: Donna Murphy, Mandy Moore, Ron Perlman, Zachary Levi

We are often and rightly said to be living in a new golden age of animation. Just occasionally, though, you get something a bit leaden. Rapunzel gets a very ordinary updating in this Disney picture, raiding duller moments from the Shrek movies for ideas, and sporting a laboured selection of Broadway-style showtunes – signalling that someone, somewhere clearly wants to turn this into a lucrative global franchise on stage, maybe with a cast in each country culled from a selection of hopefuls competing in some reality TV show. Despite the title, Rapunzel’s hair stays as lustrous and untroubled as something from a shampoo ad; extreme girliness is of course the order of the day, but those great big doe eyes really are verging on the absurd. Even given that movies like Wall-E, Up and the Toy Stories have probably spoiled us all, this just looks like a cynical money-machine.

Martyrdom is Not Bravery

All apologies for this blog, Its sound contradicting to some stories of martyrdom. But let me have my own idea of this LINE.

As I remember in my past life, I was a kid who always thinks that it’s ok to be bullied by big kids on the school. I was left alone crying for they have left me with a scratch on my face and with my dirty school uniform brought by their Chocó drinks. And for me, it’s all okay.

When I went to grade school, I thought things will become better, new friends and a new place. But what was on my mind didn’t happen. Same things happened at that time. I was bullied by my classmates, BIG, Enormous, Huge ones…Not only males but also female ones. I even remembered, going home to school one day crying because my classmate said insulting words about my parents. Well, in fact they don’t even know them. I accept these things, I never said anything or even made any move on them for I said to myself, it’s all okay.

I went to high school, where I began to know myself even more. I went on training and become a CAT officer to pick myself up once more. I believed I can be a leader not just for anybody but for myself. I faced the training the hard way (As hard as you can ever imagine). I went up and down the stairs, ran as far as I can in the wide field of our campus “enjoying” the heat of the sun. After the long training I have I graduated as the Operation Officer (Major). That was great thing that happened to me.

I began to know things for myself, learned things for myself and gained friends, friends I call and not bullied by big kids I knew before.  Then I realized being silent doesn’t mean you’re brave, or letting anyone hurt you and never fighting back doesn’t mean you are good person. Being quiet doesn’t mean you’re courageous it only allows them to hurt you all the more without defense. Fighting to defend yourself also means loving yourself. Don’t allow anyone to hurt you for you are a beautiful person made to be loved and not to be hurt.

Be blessed!!

A Different One..

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

“Change is part of life, it is your decision to accept it or not..Hahaha!! Words of wisdom from someone who hardly accepts changes…” by S.S.

51 days had passed, when I have meet new set of human beings, a wider milieu and other form of species. At first I was scared of this challenge, of this beginning. In events like this, anxiety rises, my heart starts to palpitate, respiration doubles in normal value and vision turns blurred. Funny how this incident changes my body’s equilibrium.

I had my first day and as I entered the room, my knees were shaking and my hands were cold as ice. Knowing that all things will be different and all i can do is be on silent mode all day long. I tried and tried to adjust but i can’t bare their language. (LOADING….) Later on, as I began to comprehend their “minds” in my surprise, all things happened differently from the way I imagined in my cracked head. This wider environment turned to be my place and made me a new person, these species I’ve seen turned out to be the people around and These new set of human beings turned to be my friends, mentor and “pancit canton eaters”. (LOL) We are left to be the best in every way, laughing sessions, food trips, “panuya” and “bantayanay” trips (LIKE IT!!) and also we have our mentoring thing to one another as well as our real life situations.

We spent the night together (we are on a nyt shift duty) with so many experiences, laughs and all sorts of things. We enjoyed all the nights we’ve been together (or bac ako lng gd nag enjoy kay kapoy man mag nyt pirme, heheheh!!) The talk’s outside the gate while waiting for our ride back home and so much more. (wala tamun gkaubsan ya dan, REFRESH2x!!!)

But they say ALL happy beginnings has its end, That’s true.. (gapati gd ko na ya) People come and go, people change, People are people (does it make sense? kuging ah.hhehehe!!) But seriously, there are times that we must leave and separate to the things we used to have, to the people we used to be with…And parting is the saddest part of it. (naks drama nman c nene) But seriously (again), it’s not goodbyes but its saying Thank you for the memories we’ve made, times we spent and laughs we shared and Good luck to all things that God planned for us.

TEAM..GO go go!!! (buang c mikay noh-hehehe!!!)

Be blessed and GOoD LUCk…
