Insanity is in fact perfectly logical, it’s just detached, isolated. The insane are imprisoned by their own utter freedom, and because they have realized that they can create a reality entirely their own, they become isolated, alone, entirely detached.
Once you have seen the universe you wish to live in, it is hard to go back to the one everyone else is choosing to live in.
To be insane is not to be irrational, it is to be mentally and emotionally alone, while holding tightly to a reality you can share with no one. Not all insanity bad, but it is all terribly lonely.
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.
college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?
