What is psychology? If asked it can be thought to be the study of the human mind, an exploration of all that is possible and all that is impossible for a single human to accomplish. It can also be exploration of self, of self awareness and the infinite that is the thought process.
So what is psychology? It is not the ability to read the thoughts of others, to sense the underlying feelings of others and it is not the ability to talk someone out of any mental disorder. Rather it is to complete and change the understanding of any situation you are put it and self relate thus improving the situation.

i can’t believe this man was elected into office as the president of the united states of america
Terrifying, isn’t it?
A new front has opened in the U.S. offensive against the Islamic State.
The Pentagon confirmed this evening that the United States has begun airstrikes against ISIS within Syria, opening up a second front in the U.S.-led offensive against the Islamic State.
After a flurry of rumors, the Pentagon confirmed the news this evening. In a statement to the press, Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said:
I can confirm that U.S. military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL [ISIS] terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles. Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time. The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the U.S. Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief. We will provide more details later as operationally appropriate.
Kirby backed this up by posting himself to Twitter:

'South Park' previewed its upcoming 18th season with an ad during Sunday's Washington game.
NOTE: The article and video mentions the Washington NFL team’s controversial name. I have left most of the uses intact to share all of the article, and my personal ban on this blog of using the team’s racially-offensive name is still enforced.
The ad uses the fact that USPTO nullified the Redskins trademark this year to freely use the name in “South Park” without fear of retribution. The spot finds Eric Cartman as head of a corporation called the Washington Redskins. Dan Snyder, owner of the NFL team the Washington Redskins, appeals to Cartman’s “decency” to please respect his team name and not use it despite the trademark no longer being enforceable. Cartman assures Snyder he’s using the name with “deep appreciation for your team and your people.”
The spot only ran locally in the Washington market, and according to Huffington Post it really pissed off some fans. But this should be a wake-up call. Since that first fist-fight between Jesus and Santa put “South Park” on the map, they’ve managed to offend damn near every group and culture in America and have fun doing it—if these guys are telling you you’re being an asshole with your team’s name, you should probably listen.
He’s like the Tony Robbins of high school football players.
Meet Apollos Hester, a wide receiver for the East View Patriots in Texas, and future motivational speaker. He gave quite possibly one of the most intense post-game interviews ever on Friday. The teenager is like Tony Robbins of high school football players.
I defy you to watch this without feeling motivated to do something, even if it’s just eating your greasy fast food lunch at your desk at work with slightly more enthusiasm than usual.

Someone get this guy a fucking medal.
They made birth control for men. However it never got past the clinical testing stage because its side effects were things like “moodiness, extreme cramping, hunger, increased sexual drive” and were considered INHUMANE.
what the fuck do they think women go through every goddamn month seriously
I’M SORRY MEN CAN’T HANDLE MENSTRATION
men are pussies
Men are not pussies because they can’t handle having one
men are penises
the post was amazing and the comments made it better.
Oh, it’s even worse than that.
Hormonal birth control for men has been a solved problem since the 1970s, and the current iterations of the technology are actually substantially superior to equivalent treatments for women, demonstrating higher effectiveness, less dangerous side effects, and lower prevalence of side effects in virtually all modern trials. At this point, some forty years on, such treatments continue to be refused certification on the ostensible basis of concerns over the purely hypothetical effects of long-term use.
Meanwhile, a hormonal birth control treatment for women whose known and documented side effects include “sudden death” can go from the laboratory to the pharmacy shelf in under five years.
Really shows you where our priorities lie, doesn’t it?
