I am ADD,ADHD,OCD,and whateverelse you can think of. My friends ask, how can you have time to be
depressed? You are always going at the speed of sound. But it's in me.
I read this some where. And it just seems to fit here.
We go through our lives with our psychic guards up, there’s too many people and it’s too risky to be open to everything and everybody all the time. But you go out to Burning Man, and everybody’s walking around with their guards down … everybody’s psychically open, and the energy just moves freely between people, and well, it just happens. Whatever you’re sending out, somebody’s picking up.
So I say, “Now, think of what would happen if people lived like that all the time, right? What would the world look like? What would that do to human potential? That’s what we’re doing out there … the Burning Man experience shows people what it can be like, and hopefully they bring it back with them to the real world even a little bit, and it stretches human possibility that much more....
I'm starting to understand that depression isn't being miserable all the time it's finding less and less shine in anything.
YES, IT CAN BE LIKE THAT.
the slow and steady decline in life till quality is just breaking even, like a heroin addict has to take it just to feel normal, depression is taking crap because its better than nothing. When you pretend being excited about simply not failing in the simplest of things is the high point of your life to date and when you get home on payday and dont have enough to eat And get to work next week let alone do anything fun.
When your choice is to go to burning man and have a week when you cant get it wrong because there is no way to get it wrong or spend 52 weeks a year getting wrong because you never get it right, it's not really a choice is it?
I LIKE THIS.
And this was on my FB wall this morning...
Did you know the people that are usually the strongest are usually the most sensitive ?
Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated ?
Did you know the one who takes care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most ?
Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are I love you, I'm sorry , and Help me ?
Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their genuine smile and see how much pain they may be in.
THIS IS TOO MUCH EVEN FOR ME TO READ TWICE. SPEECHLESS. TAKING A BREAK
The culture of acceptance, creativity, experimentation, self
reliance, self sacrifice and fun bring out the best in me.
There are times when I'm jaded and times when I'm thriving but through
out all of that the culture still encourages me to be a better me on a
Sorry to drift your thread Elliot. But I ramble on as you do. I have no circle to comlpete either.
