You Are Doing A Good Job

It is my belief that suffering mental illness has a great spiritual benefit and significance for all of us if only we can bear to live with it.
We can understand deeply other people's misfortunes because we are so depleted ourselves. So we work hard, we are not lazy. It is a symptom that optimism and positivity are elusive in this adversity.
We need to ask for great courage to steer through it and we need to be able to ask for the right skills to navigate it. This can be seen as a spiritual work and will bear a fruitful outcome in the end if we can afford to be patient. Time and prayer bearing fruit in silence to obtain the maximum result. We are not idle in this condition. We need to be patient if we can not grasp these facts straight away whether we are a sufferer or an observer.
It is a meditation, a contemplation and spiritual action which no one can take away from us even when we face hard and punishing circumstances. We are still doing the good job deep inside of ourselves. And we need society to be sympathetic to our particular difficulties so we do not lose hope and go off the rails completely.
Its a very hard experience to talk about clearly, objectively and with integrity as we might appear ridiculous when believing our own unreality. We need adequate rest to recuperate from economic engagement. And sufficient robust mechanisms to support us while not working. They do exist already but many more diverse mechanisms can be created and employed to provide a background of firm support everywhere and for everyone.

The Safe Room
