It's hard to deny that emotional distress can result in psychic pain and it's not wise to believe that denial isn't an important part of life. We all have limits for what we can accept and how much time, patience, effort, and support from others are required to recover from an emotional crisis.
Someone who seems to be dealing with a similar crisis to that of others may receive pressure from them to deal with it as quickly or in the same way as they did. Since there are too many diverse factors to consider, this can cause extra upset and delays in healing.
It helps to remember that we are all courted by marketing strategies geared to provide us with the comforts of escape. People don't typically gear marketing campaigns toward appealing to someone's responsible sensibilities. People have been conditioned to buy based on emotions and those who are selling too often don't care which ones. Human involvement and interpersonal relationships take time and effort. The stock market moves too quickly to acknowledge these factors.
It is unfortunate but true that modern medicine would place profits above principles and use marketing ploys aimed at our appetite for escapism. This is how corporations dictate how we see ourselves based on the standards of medical models.
Although the social models that we create are dependent on unnecessary politics and commercialism also, they have a better chance for being empowering to the majority because they are more directly involved with personal relationships rather than corporate interest. The social model meets us where we live rather than where we are taught we should live.
When corporations design anything, they do what will best suit the financial (and often temporary) interest of their company. Following these models (like the medical models) teach us that what can be bought and sold should determine our values.
The more the convenient medical values teaches us to honor commercial escapism and avoidance of reality rather than acknowledging our responsibility to create our own best situations from what we have available, the more we tend to get away from our personal asperations and lose our way.
