Fearless Thoughts

Different, Not Better

Recently someone was trying to persuade me to do something I didn’t want to do.  He told me that I should do things his way because I’m “better” than other people.  I immediately replied that no I am not.  I  I never think of myself as better than anyone else because I’ve been on the other side.  When you have a mental illness many people believe, act, and treat you like they are better than you.  And just because I can hide in plain sight now doesn’t mean I forget how that feels.  But after he said that to me I did feel different.  I marvel at the turns of life.  Everyone is under the impression that I am where I’m supposed to be but no one can tell what it took to get here.
