Hi. I am reading these posts and I see many very well balanced considerations about many matters. I think this can be a great help for who has practical difficulties in life or at work.
Anyway I’d like to speak also about the way to see life when symptoms are not heavy, because controlled through medicines and therapy, or simply because the condition is not as heavy as in other persons.
It seems all about: you have heavy problems, medicines will help you.
Ok, right maybe.
But … it’s not only this. When you have solved the practical problems, it remains also the way in which you relate to other persons. I mean that once the practical problems are under control there are also feelings, opinions, way of living, different view of things and so on. About these minor aspects we could feel different respect what considered normal, but it doesn’t mean we are wrong.
It’s not just doing things in the right or wrong way, but a different way maybe.
I would like to speak also about this and not only about medicines that solve what we are not able to do in the right way.
For example, very often I feel myself very different respect other persons. It’s not that I cannot understand the importance of practical behaviour and conform to what considered normal by society, that allows to live among other persons, but sometimes I feel that persons around me cannot go further that.
They all seem to need practical solutions to imminent problems, standard behaviours accepted by everybody, but they do not see further that. For example they seem to have difficulties in recognizing or speaking about feelings. Or, from a practical point of view, persons around me usually seem to have no interest in what the solution of imminent problems could produce wrongly on the long term.
Anyway, what I’d like to say here is that, ok, medicines and therapy help in solve major practical problems, but are we sure we would like to become more normal in everything?
Or we would just need to feel ourself more supported by persons similar to us in sensibility and view of life? Are we sure we are completely wrong?
Ok, it’s a deficit, it means that anything in our body and our mind doesn’t work properly respect the average human race. But this gives also a different sensibility that goes further the practical aspects of life. We are lucky in this, because we have no longer to hunt to eat, or defend ourselves from fierce wild animals, so our peculiar traits are less weak than in the past and maybe could be accepted, by us for first, because they give us also positive characteristics. This is not only consolation. Don’t you agree?
