I recently heard the Johnny Cash version of this song.

I then read a few internet articles about the history of the song and why he and other artists decided to record it.

It wasn’t easy finding a song title for a blog post like this. Sure, information related to traumatic situations and conditions should probably be accompanied with songs of encouragement, but sometimes we have no choice but to just process…the hurt.

1. Narcissism – Resources

According to psychologists, narcissism is a disorder in which someone has an inflated sense of self-importance. Symptoms include an excessive need for admiration, disregard for others’ feelings, an inability to handle criticism, and a sense of entitlement. Diagnosis is rare –fewer than 200,000 US cases per year – but the condition is chronic (lifelong) and cannot be cured.

2. PTSD – Resources

Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a serious potentially debilitating condition that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a natural disaster, serious accident, terrorist incident, sudden death of a loved one, war, violent personal assault such as rape, or other life-threatening events. There are currently about 8 million people in the United States living with PTSD.

3. OCD (all joking aside…)

Everyone experiences obsessions and compulsions at some point. For example, it’s common to occasionally double-check the stove or the locks. Some people also just like things neat. But OCD is more extreme. It can take up hours of a person’s day. It gets in the way of normal life and activities.
