A must read from Hasty
May is Mental Health Awarness month.
I suffer from anxiety and depression. Many people do. I imagine many mental illnesses require the same if not more attention than depression does. It is exhausting always having to search yourself for motive and intention. It isn’t easy to separate rational ideas and expectations from irrational ones.
Reality is not so easy for those suffering with a mental illness because our perception can be skewed. When we look at reality it is like looking at all the details of a painting with only the light of the moon. Everyone else can see that painting under sunlight.
Don’t get me wrong. Just because it might take longer to reason things out does not mean we are unreasonable people. Sometimes, because we know we have to take the time to examine internal and external information, we can be more reasonable than many of our peers.
