After growing up in painful, abusive conditions, Aaron Stark was on his way to an atrocity, until simple acts of kindness changed his life forever. What is causing the rise of violence and are our current fears and solutions just making it worse? My name is Aaron stark. I am 39 years old with 4 children, 2 cats, one dog, and a beautiful wife. I am a stay at home dad; my wife is the breadwinner of the family. I am a comic book fan, a pop culture junkie, and a lover of the sciences. I have more knowledge about superheros, pro wrestling, and comedy than anyone really has a right to. After growing up in very abusive and violent circumstances followed by over a decade if personal recovery, I am now a happy family man. I recently shred a very personal story of my triumph over my past, and it has changed my life forever. My mission is to let people know that no matter how dark it may seem, there is light coming. We really are not alone. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
I will always be nice and respectful to every one I meet, but if I see violent tendencies from someone I will not go out of my way to be friends with them. Sometimes school shooters are good kids I'm bad situations but other times they are complete psychopaths.
My girlfriend gets hit by her parents. She is super shy and we are extremely in love, but the mother hates me because i am older than her daughter. She knows i will do something to stop her. Either friendly or unfriendly. I can be very aggressive if i need to.
I hate this women.
Our social services are a joke. My “mom” use to take kids in and said she was doing it for them when really she just wanted the checks that came with it. As soon as I hit 18 and was out of school and the child support money stopped she kicked me out. And now has done pretty much the same to them every after being reported to them many many times. This place is full of awful people that ruined good people like this dude for their own gain
This has nothing to do with this video but I wanna show you something that happened at school recently:
Teacher asked me: Are you doing? (x4)
Me: What do you mean?
Teacher: Are you doing your work or are you talking?
And then I turned to my friend who was coincidentally sitting right next to me and said: Man it feels good to be a gangster
damn this hit home. i can relate to this even though i honestly didn't have it as awful as he did, emotionally and mentally i totally relate. i physically relate but i was more mentally and emotionally abused than physical. cutting was my escape too. it was at home where i felt the worse. im happy to hear a positive story like this.
This man is amazing. I know that it is hard to get up and tell people how you feel. I can do it easily through comments like this, but I cannot imagine how much courage it would take to do this. Good job to this man and I believe that everything he said was true.
ME: hey teacher
Me: can I ask a question
Me: how do you put an elephant in a fridge
Teacher: I don’t know, how
Me: well you open the door and put it inside
Can I ask another question
Me: how do you put a donkey in a fridge
Teacher: oh that’s easy you just open the door and put it inside
Me: no no no you have to open the door take the elephant out and then put it inside
Me: can I ask another
Me: if all the animals went to the lions birthday party which one would be missing
Teacher: the lion of course, because it ate all the animals
Me: no the donkey because it’s still in the fridge
Teacher: oh hahaha
Me: can I ask one more?
Teacher: ok make it fast
Me: if your at a river with a whole bunch of alligators how do you cross it?
Teacher: I don’t know, how
Me: all the animals are at the lions party so you just swim

Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
