“We do not know the causes [of any mental illness]. We don’t have the methods of ‘curing’ these illnesses yet.” —Dr. Rex Cowdry, psychiatrist and director of National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), 1995

 

This video makes my heart hurt.

I accidentally came across this video today. I know that there are people who have mental illness. I just think this video is worth the time it takes to watch based strictly on the ability to identify yourself in this epidemic and cut the strings that psychiatrist pull.

Love,

Dear Yesterday, Goodbye.

“Vi veri veniversum vivus vici”

The truth has been one of the most empowering realizations of my 30 years on this earth. It is not always pleasant but worth it beyond words. I’m coming to find most people ask for the truth but rarely ever want it.

I decided to truly be honest with everyone I encounter. It is strange sometimes, the look I get in return. I’m never rude, frank but not rude. I get confused by people’s rebuttal to the truth, even things I’ve seen with my own eyes or heard with my own ears. I had never really noticed this till I quit playing the pretend game myself.

Sometimes I feel as if the more I dig into myself, life, human behavior the further I become from the rest of the world.

Love,

M
