Voices we hear and the Voice we are

The general daily accusations that a mental health sufferer has to filter out of his hearing and not get depressed about are addressed to everyone. The accusations of idleness, laziness, bumming around, sky walking, dreaming, poor attitude, time wasting, avoidance etc. then there is the general anger towards these perceived faults. This makes us feel very poorly indeed.
I understand why, having worked, that time is money. Being unproductive is a sin in the eyes of bread winning providers. However beating ourselves up about it and feeling guilty will get us no where. We have to stay well and be happy along side the outpouring of cynicism to which we are so sensitive and tuned.
We are working hard to solve our situations and live in harmony with others.

An oddity in a world of strange

I don't quite have the right sides to fit in. Maybe if I had straighter edges, less curved parts that stick out and show me off to the world. I attempt to remould, change attitudes and behaviours all to get those straight lines. Then, ...
