Term 2 Concept Chart Analytical Paragraph on Setback Situations (Answer)
The concept chart displays the listed responses to the situation when one faces setbacks. Setbacks that bring unhappiness with them can be processed in two ways – healthy and unhealthy.
It can be seen from the chart that healthy processing helps one learn from failures and to let go of the emotions inside by keeping a positive attitude. Failed work can be reassessed to find the likelihood of success in future. On the contrary, unhealthy processing directs towards blocked learning or blocked feeling. Unacceptance of failure may create self-doubt and self-criticism, which can trigger more anger or depression.
It is evident from the chart that responding to setbacks negatively leads to a vicious cycle of undesirable feelings.
