Learned Helplessness


4 thoughts on “For and From the Community”

  1. “The “epigenetic” processes of development are always present, and interactions with our environments can either limit or expand our capacity to keep developing. The events of any day can move us toward “learned helplessness” or toward “creative productivity.” When recurring discomforts can be seen as meaningful steps toward a goal, our physiology adjusts, increasing skills that make the tasks easier, but adaptation to a poor environment has a biological cost. To the degree that recurring tasks conflict with our sense of meaning, they can cause our functional capacity to shrink.
    One of the good things about consciousness is that it can sometimes guide us away from harmful courses of action, or development, by reducing their interest, making other things more interesting.” Ray Peat
