Implement the 3A rules of health: self-acceptance, other-acceptance, environment-acceptance, and keep away from vexation

By Ye Liu Zengshu, Major, Mental Health Center, South Region, Ministry of National Defense

In the twenty-first century, modern people get angry and anxious easily, and lose patience, or lose control emotionally.  Including you and me, we demand immediate satisfactions with everything, lose self-esteem in daily life, and avoid facing current problems which are beyond our ability to control.  Sometimes we do not know how to manage and resolve the problems, and become impatient and anxious, even become frustrated or depressive.  Usually we demand rapid response and resolution, and become angry if we are not satisfied.  Sometimes, we get confused and wonder what to do and how to do it, or the reasons for and objectives of actions.  Consequently we will feel lost and confused because we lose the perception of self-esteem, and turn against ourselves.

Although we undergo more pressure nowadays, we obtain more information and knowledge, and more easily.  Will this information be helpful to us for adaptating ourselves and taking on challenges?  We’d better learn the concept of 3A as aforesaid so that we can freely change and live our lives, keep away from vexation, and make our lives better.
