Understanding Post - Power Syndrome For our beloved Person

Rudi , 23 -year -old dashing young man is increasingly annoyed just see the behavior of his father . Just imagine , who would not hate it if you have a father who is retired and unemployed , but when speaking always lofty . His father told him incessantly about how great he once was when he was managing director of a garment company in Surabaya . As if he had never realized , that story has been repeated constantly repeated dozens of times in and out of the ear Rudi . When reprimanded , his father could not accept and assume Rudi inexperienced.

When Rudi's friends around to the house , his father always gives " lecture " to his friends that they follow the example of what his father had done . In fact not only at home , in the neighborhood tetanggapun , Rudi 's father known as " pengobral " stories of the past obsolete . As a result , not only are irritated Rudi , but neighbors are already tired of hearing the story of his father also directly away so come see Rudi 's father .
Post - power syndrome , is a phenomenon that occurs where people live in the shadow of the greatness of his past ( his career , beauty , good looks , intelligence , or something else ) , and as if he could not look at the reality that exists today . As happened to Rudi 's father , he experienced post - power syndrome . He always wanted to express how he was so proud of his past efforts in its path with an incredible ( according to him ) .
There are many factors that cause the occurrence of post - power syndrome . Early retirement and layoffs is one of those factors . When people are getting early retirement can not accept a state that energy is not used anymore , even though he thinks he can still contribute significantly to the company , post-power syndrome will be easily attacked . Especially when it turns out he was already included age less productive and rejected when applying in other companies , post-power syndrome that attacked will get worse .
Traumatic events also became one of the causes of post - power syndrome . For example, accidents experienced by a runner , which caused his leg to be amputated . If he is not able to accept the situation that happened , he would experience post - power syndrome . And if it continues to drag on , it's possible that more severe psychiatric disorder be suffered .
Post - power syndrome almost always experienced , especially those who are elderly and retired from his job . It's just a lot of people who make it through this phase quickly and can accept with open heart . But in certain cases , where the person is unable to accept the reality , coupled with the pressing demands of life , and he is the sole support family life , the risk of post - power syndrome greater weight .
Several cases of post - power syndrome followed by severe mental illness such as can not think rationally in a given period of time , severe depression , or to individuals introfert ( closed ) occurs psychosomatic ( pain caused by emotional baggage that is not channeled ) severe .
handle it
When a post - power syndrome sufferers can find new self-actualization , it would be helpful for him . For example, a manager who is affected by layoffs , but can actualize ourselves in pioneering new business ( agribusiness , for example ) , he would avoid the risk of developing post - power syndrome .
In addition , the support of the immediate environment , in this family , and the emotional maturity of someone very influential in the phase of passing the post - power syndrome . Someone who can accept the reality and existence well will be able to get through this phase compared with someone who has a conflict of emotions .
Support and understanding from loved ones really help people . When people see that the people who loves to understand and know about his situation , or lack of ability to earn a living , he would be able to accept the situation and be able to think cool . It will restore creativity and productivity , although not as good as before . The result would be very different if the family instead of mocking and always insinuating , grumbling , even making fun of him .
Post - power syndrome affect anyone , both men and women . Emotional maturity and warmth of family help to get through this phase . And one way to prepare for the post - power syndrome is fond of saving and simple life . Because when the post - power syndrome attack , while the patient is already accustomed to luxury living , the consequences will be more severe .
