I want to write about the most beautiful things in the world only being felt with the heart because I believe it to be the truth. There is nothing more beautiful than loving someone unconditionally, with no limits. Helen Keller is someone who inspired me, at a very young age, when I read a book about her and despite her issues was someone who could achieve great things.
I want to write about someone who has a continuous smile on his face concealing a frightening toughness because I believe that it is the truth. Often a smile can disguise ugly or bad thoughts. The same with flattery, too much is suspicious. I associate an overly positive person with extreme caution, as I believe they are trying to hide something. At least during my lifetime, this has proved to be true.
I want to write about the best way out is always through because I believe it to be the truth. I remember being told by a mental health professional once that ‘you have to go through the green slimy stuff’’ in order to get anywhere in life. If you try to avoid a problem by sidestepping it or ignoring it, the problem persists. So, it is best to meet the problem head on and try to go through it, even if it is difficult.
I want to write about the fourth one, too long to re-tell because it seems to be saying that a mental health condition is not a weakness, but a strength. Being able to feel things intensely means you have compassion for others. Not being able to understand someone’s issues is a fault. Being able to shed tears is not a weakness, but a strength.
