Emotional wellbeing, not mental health

It is only through our internal wars that we lose sight of reality.

The culture of labeling people dehumanises the very human that is struggling with their humanness.

We focus on our demons so intently, that we become defined by them, bearing them patiently in quiet shame, protecting ourselves from being exposed for what we hold within.

When we judge ourselves with such shame and harshness, we see the world through angry eyes.

But, protocol and decorum prevents us from raging and venting without restraint, so we choose safe spaces in which to release the venom from within, on those who are incapable of opposing or resisting us.

In the public space, we create carefully constructed apologies for our inadequacies, latching onto unhealthy concepts like ‘suffering from…’ whatever emotional torment we’re experiencing.

That’s when we feed the belief that human emotion is an illness, or a disorder, because it’s the only hope we have of making sense of the war within.

All this because we convinced ourselves that being any less than happy must be weak, or dysfunctional.

The sway of human emotions, regardless of how crazy that sway may appear or be experienced, is a legitimate response to very real life experiences.

Labeling the response does nothing to create understanding and healing around that traumatic or overwhelming experience.

Stop labelling people because of their behaviour, and reconnect with your own empathy and compassion so that you may once more see the human behind the human condition.

Own Your Life.
