Who else here would describe their situation as an incurable learned helplessness?

Most of my current problems are gifts from my shitty childhood. Emotions and thoughts deep-rooted in my subconscious. It makes me so fucking angry but I know there's no shit I can do beyond enduring myself until death comes.

I would.
I have noticed that a lot of internet posters consider learned helplessness to be an independent mental state that is the source of other problems, pretty much just a bad attitude that you can magically fix with positive thoughts and Just Doing Things. The problem with that is that you don't learn it from nowhere. The dogs that could stop the electric shocks didn't learn to just lie down and wait for the shocks to stop. People who go through life finding that they have the power to control their circumstances don't learn that their problems can't be fixed.
How would I unlearn it? I would need to have some ability to control an outcome, but I don't.

I wouldn't call it incurable, since I try to avoid absolutes whenever possible. Learned hopelessness, and when I'm in a really bad place it does seem incurable…

Looks like it is a shot from serial experiments lain. Its kind of hart to tell since it is heavily edited from the normal look of the show but that is clearly her hairstyle.

 No.209274

you can always unlearn something i suppose, not that it'd be easy

It's from the 1998 playstation game.
