Being right is not always healthy
If you are truly honest to yourself, you will find that you have no other intention out of life other than to be a good, decent human being who wants nothing more than to live and die peacefully. Some pretend to live lives of villains and enjoy them, but it is all a facade, or is it? The answer to that is not so simple anymore as it seems the world is topsy-turvy now and doing good can actually lead to some of the worst things that could happen to you.
1 ‘White Lies’ can traumatize your children
It seems to be a commonly accepted claim that children have no tolerance when it comes to bad news, so it is always better to say that their pet dog or cat went to live on a farm upstate than actually give them a piece of real information about life. What seem to be wrong about that picture? We seem to be using a ‘white lie’ to postpone facing the bitter truth, foolishly convincing ourselves that we are doing the kids a favor without revealing the ‘horrors of the world’ to them, but this is not so. According to a research by the University of California, San Diego, it was brought to light that these ‘white lies’ only make children realize how little adults care for honesty and threw the whole concept of truth and integrity out of the window. If things keep going on this way, Santa will no longer be needed a ‘good’ column on his list.
2 Whistle-blowing can ruin your life
Taking a stand against abuses and wrongdoings in the system we live and work in is certainly one of the best things a truly good person can do isn’t it? That one person displays the courage that so many before were too afraid to show and brings injustice to light and that person is rewarded sometimes a cash payout or a ‘witness protection deal’ like we see so many times in the movies, but that isn’t forever. The sad truth is that ultimately a whistle-blower loses everything dear to them and lives a life of constant fear and regret. This was proven more accurately in 2011, when a study concluded that whistle-blowing leads to long-term emotional damage, alcoholism, nightmares, panic attacks,and paranoia.
3 Too much of nothing is good
Workingisa great way to blow off some steam, keep toned and stay healthy. For most, working out is similar to therapy as it has a calming effect over them and helps soothe errant thoughts. However, there seems to be a snake in the laurels when it comes to working out. Research has brought to light the fact that the maximum a person should exercise is 7.5 hours a week. Exceeding this limit can be extremely harmful to your health as it may cause conditions such as depression, anxiety and deteriorating mental health.Even calming exercises such as yoga seem to be doing more bad than good.
