I have spent some time in UK, London, as the matter of fact 2 years and i am coming back over there in a few months. I am not young, so many years are behind me, so much experience I have gained. I am a software engineer, a person who has always been "educated" to think pragmatically, to seek rational solution of everything.
That is all fine, but there are some issues that we cannot solve, even if we find rational and the least painful choice. Sometimes we need to work in order to pay rent, to buy food etc, and plus we need to go to a college because we simply want to advance ourselves and therefore find better job. It is our human duty to enjoy the benefits of the developed human civilization and that benefit belongs to us, it is our right.
If i want to go to a college and i want to work at the same time, something not so good this fact will result in. We may worsen our health whether physical or mental. People who suffer from mental disorders(especially I aim at depression, anxiety, stress) should try to find the balance. One factor extremely important is that we cannot have everything in the same time. Sometimes, we just need to get rid of one thing in order to highly benefit from another.Simply, our modern and "civilized" way of life has imposed its inevitably negative consequences unnoticed.
I do not much about bi-polar or some other serious diseases, but I know that depression, anxiety and stress exclusively result from internal unbalance. Our soul becomes tired with our way of life,and it revolts against that arrangement of life-style. but, we are not listening to that "internal voice" , we still continue walking on the old path being afraid to be something different, being afraid to disappoint others around us who expect something that only they know what it is.
We need to decode our internal voices as a genuine information that cannot be seen by eyes, cannot be heard by ears and cannot be smelled by nose. Once we achieve hearing them our lives will change diametrically.
