In chapter 13 of Positive Psychology, they talk about mental health and behavior. They go into depth about the characteristics of a mentally healthy person, which include things like an identity and values that contribute to a sense of autonomy and a personal attitude toward self that includes self-acceptance and/or self-esteem. There’s a lot of issues that need to be addressed to be able to get a better view of people and see how views change. We tend to ask “Is that normal?” if we observe actions that seem “abnormal”. However, there’s no accepted definition of abnormal so it’s hard to define what we find “abnormal”, or “normal”. We also tend to answer the question with “It depends”, because it definitely depends on different factors and the way people think about certain things. Strengths and well-being are very important to think about when it comes to mental health. We just tend to see things differently based on our past experiences, so we deal with “abnormality” differently. Therefore, we’re basically biased, so we need to get a better understanding of how things function by addressing these biases. We also need to put ourselves in other peoples’ shoes, especially if they’re being judged, so we can get an understanding of how they’re feeling.
