What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

From an intuitionist school of thought and mixed with the mythology of this man-made beauty,  Psyche is the daughter-in-law of Aphrodite and the wife of Eros. Discussions about the soul act as an aversion for some but it doesn't have to be.
The truth is, dismissing anything and everything that insult your soul will cause you to lose your way, as it is one of the most powerful defences your body has. As your defences are taken down, you have a much higher chance of getting hurt yourself.

People do not realize how powerful they actually are, even when they are doing something bad to you. You are capable of so much more than most people give you credit for. The most important thing is that you learn how to protect yourself from what truly hurts your soul.

Some people think that they can simply ignore everything that is said to them. They think that it is harmless and does not have any effect on them. That is not true. Everything that you say and does affects other people and how they see things around them.

It could be that you have hurt some people in the past, and this is what they perceive as being a problem. They may want to hurt you because they do not like the way you look at things. They think that you do not have a good heart and therefore they will not allow you to be who you are and want to change.

Even if you did not mean to hurt them, they may think it was because of what they say, and they will take it out on you. This is the best defence you have against whatever is bothering you, as it can save you from getting hurt yourself.

The best thing you can do when someone says something that upsets your soul is not to take offence and just walk away. When you are walking away, you are giving yourself a chance to get over whatever is upsetting you. You also give yourself a chance to cool off, which is what a defence is really all about.

If you have ever had an attack, you know what I'm talking about. When you are under an attack, you feel like you are in a war, and you will feel the same thing. It is not only physical but psychological. You feel like there is no hope, so you start to turn away and just run away.

You must keep your mind clear and make sure that your mind is not filled with fear. Anything that causes fear will only serve to add to your defence. your attack, as you will want to do anything you can to protect yourself from whatever is happening. that could hurt you.

If you have an attack, you must tell yourself that you will not let it happen and that you will be strong enough to handle whatever it is. You also want to tell yourself that whatever is happening will not change your life, so do not allow it to change your life.

When you have an attack, you need to stay cool and calm and think that whatever is happening is a joke. If you cannot do this and you are in such a state of panic, just walk away from the situation and just go find someone to help you. or talk to a professional.

Do not let it get to the point where it hurts you so bad that you feel like you want to leave the situation. If you feel that you need to get away, just let it be. just walk away, and then find someone to help you.

When an attack takes place, you are so stressed and worried that it will end up being physical, you will probably just try to run away or hide from it. You do not need to do that, especially when you have a serious attack.

The point here is to keep your mind calm and focused on something else, like a book or a friend. you need to not get a panic attack. Do not allow yourself to feel bad and allow it to take over your entire life.

Where Are You Going With This?

Anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days."
— Flannery O'Connor's (1925-1964)

The titled responsion examines the rest of the days and the premature everlasting arrival that Flannery finds comforting. Not to mention trauma, the lasting effects of childhood affect the way we feel.

This is all good and true, except for humanity herself. The information received from the post-childhood of our species is hardly enough to compete for survival in a vacuum. This move is partially Hegelian and represents a child-like animate associate technique to give animate qualities to history. History doesn't act, people do. We also forget, destined to repeat the mistakes we previously made. Hegel has that angle covered as well but he is missing the point, and that's that.

Notice how the end of the story ends in observation? The that's that followed by a period is the end of the story and the beginning. This apparent contradiction isn't intended to keep you up at night, instead, I would like to say that story-telling is both endemic and axiomatic to the survival of our species. My "choice" or use of the word endemic only makes sense (ie. contributes to essence) when coupled with axiomatic and points to the "evolution" of culture.

Flannery O’Connor - planksip
Mary Flannery O’Connor was an American writer and essayist. She wrote two novels and thirty-two short stories, as well as a number of reviews and commentaries.

Let's be clear, no realization of information from the survival of one's childhood is sufficient for the rest of one's life. Indoctrination and trauma are two examples that have cascading effects that don't have to last a lifetime. Consider re-reading Flannery's quote and think about what it means when a child survives a healthy and happy childhood versus a child surviving an unhealthy, unhappy childhood.

Your soul, whatever that is, re-formes based on continual examination. Test yourself!
