Как воспитать и сохранить чувство собственного достоинства. Финальный эфир «Точек опоры»
How to react to admonition and praise in a dignified way? How not to let your personality collapse at war or in captivity? This is what we are talking about with a psychologist.
Larysa Voloshyna, a psychologist, journalist, and TV presenter, is the broadcast’s guest.
Larysa Voloshyna: “Dignity is a most important category of psychology, ethics, and mores. Psychology does not say that dignity is some separate feeling, like ire or joy are. This is a combination, a whole construct. There are different theories about what it is. Some psychologists think that dignity is something that people form within themselves during the process of these people’s lives. Other psychologists, who are more modern, say that dignity is an inborn feeling. The founder of biodynamics says that every person is born with the feeling of personal dignity but then, during the process of life, this feeling is stolen from a person. The value of feeling one’s dignity is a way to oneself, a comeback to oneself. Dignity is a person’s inner feeling of the value of human personality, their own value, and value of any
other human personality. It is very important to understand that I can’t be myself if I destroy and denigrate another person. If I invade another person’s space, I am uncomfortable. If they yell at me, if they pressurize me, I must defend myself aggressively but then I am ashamed, pained, and displeased with what had happened to me. Displeasure is the denigration of dignity.”
Andriy Kobaliya’s package was about how to remain oneself and how to preserve the wholeness of personality in unfreedom.
According to Frankl, the will to sense is an important human feature. In other words, any person possesses a desire to find and realize a sense of life. In extreme circumstances, a person has to find a goal which justifies being in captivity, in a camp or any other space characterized by stable danger.
Valery Makeyev, who spent 100 days in captivity, shared his experience: “The main thing in such situations is not to panic. Not to invent anything in your mind. And not to betray yourself. You need to remain a human being even in dire straits. I tried to maintain my physical level at least to some extent. To the extent that this was possible, of course. I shaved. I did not have tooth paste, so I washed my hands and massaged my gums. I had not let myself decline. It is important to continue to live.”
