O To Always Be A Citizen

I have always believed that being a citizen is not solely due to the endeavours of an individual working alone. People often exclaim their success is all down to themselves. That not even God has helped them.

Certainly we can try very hard but it is not all down to us.

There are those who expect it to be all down to us. Yet unless you have been truly powerless in life how will another individual ever know what it means to be carved out of it. He would only reason from his own experience of strength and then expect you to try harder.

So it is with mental health they do not why it has happened to us. We are trying and trying very hard and this effort must be recognised in a sensitive and civilised way.

Is it right after a failure of health to be re-accepted as a citizen even though our appearance has changed and we are not what we once were?

There are people who will say yes and others no. It depends on whether you deserve it or not they will say.

So how do you deserve it so that there is no doubt that you should be a citizen? Who measures the effort and how will you know?

After reflection it is by seeing and believing in others and having faith in oneself which confirms this reality but it is a mechanism that is always in jeopardy. Moreover, citizenship, which requires the goodwill of others may not always be secure and it might fluctuate and vary due to ill health.

Regular citizens and their families experience all sorts of problems to keep afloat, so these trials may seem child-like, abstract or irrelevant, prone to misinterpretation by stressed providers.

However I am sure this vital debate of knowing your personal value, self esteem and having a fair place in the world will continue to highlight the position of so many and bring about positive change and proper understanding.

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, ...
