Ironically, studies have shown that certain types of movies, music and reading materials are connected to mental illnesses. For example, pornographic material has been proven to influence individuals dramatically to the point of murder, rape and other violent crimes. Such materials affect even an individual irrespective of mental illnesses simply because someone fall victim to a predator along the path.
Affect of Movies and Music
Violent movies and music has also confirmed to affect the mind. More and more children today are violent, and studies have confirmed that video games, movies and music play an immense role in the childrenâ€™s behaviors. Studies has also shown that as a result from obsessive entertainment behaviors, children are committing murder, rape, taking drugs, alcohol, and interrupting others peoples life.
Although few argue that this is ridiculous, they have no idea what they are talking about, since the ones arguing are the sources that are producing such interrupting noises. Not so long ago a young man claimed after hearing the song â€œKill your Motherâ€ countless of times, the lyrics went to his head and he committed accordingly to the song. This is only one account linked to mental health and entertainment.
Mental health is nothing to consider and the rules were laid out from the beginning. Even God acknowledged and made it conscious to everyone that such behaviors would result in disaster. Proven faithful to His words, because of polluted behaviors created by entertainment the word is going mad. Do not get me wrong, not all entertainment is bad. However, the truth is if you are associating with bad, then bad will come to you and every person around you because of the action.
However, if you are associating with good, then rewards are guaranteed to follow. Not everyone with mental illnesses however engage in wrongful behaviors, actions, or self-exposing themselves to entertainment that harms. At least not directly, but somewhere in their lifetime they were exposed indirectly to this kind of behavior.
I am promising you that everyone in their lifetime has been exposed to this behavior, everyone with the exclusion of newborns. In order to improve mental health, it is time we look at what goes on around us. We will be pounding our heads against the walls for a lifetime if we do not confess that harmful entertainment is part of the problem.
Children follow what they hear, see, and are taught. Similarly, adults learn what they see, hear and are taught. Nobody is an exception the rule, and all of us are subjects to influences. Surround with dangers, life is too short to be playing. Either we are in this together are we are all working toward a disastrous future.
Violence with Mental Health
Since it is showing in all areas of life, satisfaction is guaranteed. Take the terrorist attack in New York recently. What do you think associated this mental ailment to reality? While there are many explanations and reasons, the main reason is the culprits were exposed to violence during their lifetime and this is what they knew in accordance with what they saw, worked.
In addition, it did to a degree. Somewhere down the line people were communicating, however very few were listening, otherwise this would not have happen in the first place. Somebody in this picture was complaining and trying to articulate their emotions and thoughts, yet somebody on the other side was ignoring the cries. What it boils down to is how a person believes.
The violence is what you are going to see, if a person believes after being taught that violence is the answer to resolve a problem, then everyone will be affected as a result. You do not play around with faith, either you are in the race to win, or else you are on the road to death.
Finally, we can see that entertainment is today more graphic, and describes inexplicit pictures on nearly every channel, radio station, and so on today. While the world is going deeper and deeper into chaos and war, it seems the morals and values are going down the tube. No one can fix a problem as quickly as the problem occurred, but in order to resolve what has already been done somewhere someone has to get started.
