Anyone notice how Abuela only interacts with Pepa when she tells her she has a cloud/is storming (which is obvious and helps nothing) and to calm down in a harsh expectant tone rather than acknowledge her daughters emotions and help her through them, which is probably what caused Pepa to learn how to compartmentalize all of her negative emotions, probably being the major contributor to her emotional instability?
Anyone notice how Felix affectionately brushes away her brewing storm clouds when he can and when Pepa looks at him the cloud goes away?
Anyone notice how Felix, Dolores, Camilo, and Antonio all wear yellow along with Pepa in order to help her by surrounding her with “sunshine” to help her be happy and chipper?
Anyone notice how even Felix has his couple moments of exasperation, and the only person we see actually attempting to calm Pepa down is Camilo, who speaks calmly and soothingly while offering her tea?
Anyone notice that it’s not until her BROTHER tells her “your bro loves you so” and to let it rain, let it snow, letting her know that he loves her no matter the weather and she should let her emotions happen?
Anyone notice when Felix remarks “that’s what I’ve been saying, bro!” implying that he had been saying that to Pepa all along, but in order to actually believe it, she needed to hear it from Bruno, who she believed so deep down that she possibly wasn’t aware, might have left because she blamed him for “ruining” her wedding, when it was actually ruined by her hurricane, and him leaving proved to her that if she doesn’t keep the skies clear, those who she loves most will turn away from her?
Anyone notice that even though her family (except Abuela) isn’t sure how exactly to help, they still try in their own ways and eventually the right person says the right thing that gets through to her?

Neurosis' Scott Kelly admits to abusing wife and children : NPR
Scott Kelly — vocalist, guitarist and an original founder for the metal band Neurosis — took to Facebook on Saturday to "address some rumors and set the record straight" about the "emotional, financial, verbal and physical abuse of my wife and younger children." Kelly writes that he kept his abuses secret and "found ways to keep my wife and kids from work and school and created divisions with friends and family members. I became obsessed with control and used threats, manipulation, threats of self-harm and suicide, inflicted physical damage on people and their reputations all to keep that control."
In the same statement, Kelly announced that he is "100% permanently retired from being a professional musician."
The remaining members of Neurosis issued a collective response to Kelly's post: "We cannot overstate the level of disgust and disappointment we feel for a man who we once called Brother." The band is quick to share that Neurosis parted ways with Kelly in 2019, "after learning about severe acts of abuse he committed towards his family over the previous years." Initially, Neurosis members did not go public out of privacy concerns — a direct request from Kelly's wife, they say.

“Religions are psychotherapeutic systems in the truest sense of the word, and on the grandest scale. They express the whole range of the psychic problem in mighty images; they are the avowal and recognition of the soul, and at the same time the revelation of the soul’s nature. From this universal foundation no human soul is cut off; only the individual consciousness that has lost its connection with the psychic totality remains caught in the illusion that the soul is a small circumscribed area, a fit subject for “scientific” theorizing. The loss of this great relationship is the prime evil of neurosis, and that is why the neurotic loses his way among ever more tortuous back-streets of dubious repute, because he who denies the great must blame the petty.” 
Excerpt From: Jung, C. G., Hull, R. F.C., Adler, Gerhard. “Collected Works of C.G. Jung, Volume 10: Civilization in Transition”.

We are made of a thousand psychological stories all unconsciously ghost-written by the various fragmented pieces of a past whose heavy fog we were too brutally lost in to ever comprehend what was happening at all.
What should the response be to this realization? Going into psychotherapy? Reading self-help books? Journaling? Meditation?

Unlike other animals, humans are acutely aware of their own mortality and are terrified of death. But the study of cosmology gives us a sense of timelessness, of being part of something much larger. The fact that your own personal life is finite is less frightening when you know you are part of an evolving universe - an ever-unfolding drama....If you think you're something special in this world, engaging in a lofty inspection of the cosmos from a unique vantage point, your annihilation becomes unacceptable. But if you're really part of the great cosmic dance of Shiva, rather than a mere spectator, then your inevitable death should be seen as a joyous reunion with nature rather than as a tragedy.
- V S Ramachandran (Phantoms In The Brain, pg. 157)
