We will experience fear if that is the meaning we hold. Clots are inclinced to believe that it wasn't the caretaker's fault, it was theirs. Acting out at a young age might have started as a protest against being treated poorly, but it winds up as resignation. A young Clot might also be mimicking the bad behavior of their caretakers. You might have turned the tables on your poor caretakers. But now your bad behavior--not their poor parenting--is the problem. In this process, you let them off the hook for not providing appropriate care. It was all me, says the regretful Clot. I deserved to be hit. brought it upon myself. Or: Why would anyone have looked out for me? It's preposterous that people still smoke cigarettes. After all the advocacy campaigns and money that's been poured into anti-smoking efforts, people still refuse to give up this vice. Even though smokers seeking medical treatment cost our nation over $300 billion a year. 7 We also know that secondhand smoke is deadly. If you're a smoker, you're not doing anyone a favor by standing two feet away. Smoking itself kills 480,000 people per year, and secondhand smoke kills 42,000 people per year. The person who's next to you--probably your child or spouse--is still inhaling the toxins. You even have a filter on your cigarette providing some protection for yourself; they do not.

It's interesting that the people who are least able to afford cigarettes are the ones who tend to smoke. As a result of sheer serendipity and some trial and error, Gram eventually immersed his tissue samples with Ehrlich's stain for three minutes and then for an additional three minutes in a mixture of 1 part iodine, 2 parts potassium iodine, and 300 parts distilled water. This colored the whole sample. But Gram was not done. He then immersed the sample in absolute alcohol for thirty seconds. he saw was surprising--nothing except the bacteria retained color. bacteria were now deep violet and easy to spot under the microscope. What if Gram could color the colorless part of the tissue to highlight the difference even more? That way, there would be no ambiguity. To his surprise, a dye called Bismarck brown worked and colored the whole tissue--except the bacteria. Friedlander was impressed. Unfortunately, there is a self- fulfilling dimension to such reasoning. We first saw this aspect of low self- esteem when describing M in the introduction to the article. In her case, for example, it was suggested that the self- handicapping strategy she used to avoid threats to her self- esteem helped keep her from succeeding in areas that were important to her. Similarly, depending on the approval of others at the expense of one's worthiness can also become a vicious self-esteem cycle. In short, while a protective personal and interpersonal focus does not result in experiencing a meaningful degree of well- being, such as people with even medium self- esteem might have, mild or moderately low self- esteem does not necessarily mean a bad life, just a less satisfying one. Although it is easy to dismiss children who behave in this fashion by seeing them as spoiled, the adult version is much less pleasant. Sometimes they are just an obnoxious coworker who people do not want on their team or a self- centered relative who is tolerated only as long as necessary. However, in more extreme or clinical levels, the lack of balance found in worthiness- based self- esteem rises to the level of a narcissistic personality disorder.

For instance, the sense of entitlement or exaggerated self- importance indicative of these conditions might be manifestations of such a self- esteem issue. This is true of anger, love, and other emotions as well. The values, attitudes and the level of confidence with which we face the world essentially create our life for us. We can give our life greater meaning and purpose by deepening our conception of these values and attitudes, and our level of confidence. By going back to the unchanging source wisdom in Sanskrit, we can redefine, clarify and realize a purer and more powerful meaning for the essential elements of our life, such as these values, attitudes and confidence. Take for example a value that many share: peace. For many of us peace is a wonderful quality that we value highly. For most of us peace is that calmness and serenity that shows itself only when conflict and disharmony have been banished. However, when we look at the Sanskrit word for peace--shanti (? ? ? I was a terror. In this way, we justify a state of isolated self-sufficiency, overlook the impact of others' behaviors, and continue to give everyone a pass for never giving us what we want or need. It takes great empathy to forgive others for dropping the ball and deem their actions humane instead of a form of assault. But truthfully, being a Clot doesn't allow for that kind of empathy to develop; can't accept others, nor they us, in all of our fallible, sometimes not-very-nice humanness, so the conflict continues. Seeing what you can't stand--what you downright hate--about yourself reflected in others is among the most primitive and common psychological defenses. It's called projection, and like all psychological defenses, it's a survival mechanism. We mitigate anxieties simply to function. But for Clots, this reaction can be disastrous.

Say you're walking down a busy city street and your blood begins to boil as you dodge and weave between all those people happily nodding their heads along with whatever music is playing in their ear buds as they type on their phones. In 2014 twice as many people who had no health coverage or Medicaid smoked more than the average American. For some, they don't know better, but for the majority, it is a conscious decision to continue the addictive habit. 8 Some people are attempting to clean up their smoking act. Vaping has picked up as the healthy alternative to smoking. As far as we know right now, it is healthier than smoking tobacco cigarettes, but cases are already piling up demonstrating lung damage and even death from vaping. Remember, just a few short decades ago, doctors used to promote smoking itself. The first ads for cigarettes had a doctor in a white coat saying, Smoking is good for you and your lungs. Our knowledge tends to take time to catch up with our bad behaviors and even longer to change our habits. In ten years, we may be having the same conversations about vaping as we are now about cigarettes and opioids. He wrote about Gram's method in his article The Use of the Microscope in Clinical and Pathological Examinations and had this to say about bacterial cells: While everything else remains perfectly colorless, they, on the contrary are dyed an intense blue, so that almost every individual in the section must at once strike the eye of the beholder. 22 Through his familiarity with the work of others, along with some luck and perseverance, Gram had come up with a substantial improvement to Ehrlich's method and could now clearly show the bacteria in tissue samples. It also meant he could resolve the debate between Fraenkel and Friedlander. Gram tested his method on the tissue samples of patients with fatal pneumonia. He revealed that Friedlander and Fraenkel were indeed seeing two different kinds of bacteria in the samples. 23 Fraenkel's bacteria would appear deep blue, almost violet-colored when infused with the stain Gram developed, while the bacteria Friedlander saw did not. Gram's stain showed that the two scientists were seeing two different types of bacteria that were causing distinct types of pneumonia. In a way, both Friedlander and Fraenkel were right, but the more common pneumonia was due to the bacteria that Fraenkel identified. Much later, one of the two bacteria was named Klebsiella pneumoniae, in honor of Edwin Klebs, and the other Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Klebsiella is the same pathogen that led to the incurable infection of the woman in Nevada in September 2016. In the most severe situations, such an individual might even resort to violence to defend against threats to a fragile sense of self. The inability to handle rejection seen in an abandoned spouse who stalks his or her former partner might be a case in point. More severe levels often do cause such destruction, and they are also connected to clinically significant as well as unhealthy modes of personal and interpersonal behavior including anger, aggression, bullying, and the like. A classic example of a mild variety of this type of self- esteem in action is the overachiever who strives toward success in ways that detract from other parts of his or her life. For example, as an academic, I have often seen students who focus far too much on having a very high grade point average at the expense of their physical well- being or social development. Such A- itis, as it is euphemistically called, sometimes results in the individual suffering a sense of loneliness or desperation that ends badly. If they are more fortunate, they make it to the counseling center instead. Some of the students in Crocker and Park's research mentioned earlier might be included in this group. What differentiates such a person from someone with a healthier pursuit of success is that he or she needs it to maintain a stable sense of self. This type of individual's low sense of worth means that there is no alternative route to feeling good as a person other than to be first, to have the most, to be the best, and so on in the domains of life that are tied to his or her identity. ? ? ? )--it takes this beautiful concept and tells us that peace is experienced when we are tranquil, and when we see it everywhere, and when our own actions are peaceful. In other words, peace is present when we feel it within ourselves, and then look out and see it everywhere, even if the circumstances seem less than peaceful. When we assimilate this deeper meaning, it redefines and clarifies our understanding of true peace. Our realization of this deeper meaning shows itself in our attitude and actions that naturally and easily become more peaceful. This is how we start to develop strong and deep roots within ourself and respond to the world effectively, compassionately and realistically. Going back to the origins of meaning through Sanskrit in this way, is like pulling back the string of a bow.
