Well, my last post was a bit of a rant so I wanted to scale things back this time and try for a more meditative view of a subject. Once again it’s mental health (they all are) and this time it’s more pointedly about just what mental health is. Try as I might, I still cannot quite suss it out.
Perhaps it’s like pornography. You can’t describe it, but you know when you see it. Perhaps it’s an attitude, a confidence or a sense of reality that someone has that somehow “feels” true. I really don’t know. I’m not trained. But even those trained aren’t always that healthy (are they?), which doesn’t mean they don’t know what they’re trained to know. It just means you can’t always practice what you preach.
