There are two points for evaluating your psychological health.
First, if your family is asked whether you are happy, what will your reply be? There are four possible answers: Always, often, sometimes and rarely. You must think about these questions yourself, as well as ask your sincere friends or family members; you’ll get your answer. If the reply is in the category of always, then it indicates psychological wellness, Alhumdulillah. And as the answer comes down from always to rarely, the trouble increases.
Second, how quickly do you become angry or offensive? Some people take pride in introducing themselves as sensitive. This is not a good thing. Being sensitive is a good thing but being unnecessarily sensitive is not good. We should be capable enough to remain strong even in the face of harsh and unnecessary criticism and remain humble in the face of even justifiable praise. Even if someone criticized you on something baseless, calling you on this and that despite you doing the right thing. In today’s society, even justified criticism and feedback is becoming difficult to offer to fellow people. People get angry even to justified criticism.
And whoever is praising you on the right thing, even if it is justified praise, do not let it into your head. Deal with it with humility. You should not be hungry to hear your praise. Your psychological health is related to your lack of hunger for praise. You should not be eager for praise, and also do not be angry or become offensive in the face of criticism and backlash.
The problem right now is that even people who have not been criticized or taunted are becoming offensive. They felt that people have thought of criticizing them and they breakdown. This is what our society has come to and this is a big reason for an individual’s psychological weakness.
There is another indicator of being psychologically fit or not. If you do not become angry and sad easily and people have to work really hard and do a lot of wrong things to make you angry, then your temperament has a threshold and you are psychologically fit.
