:( Depression Support Groups do a good job, Problem is its just a moment thing..No Matter how much help we get from others? It will do nothing for the inner demons..some folks battle...Because its a moment by moment thing...Some folks just get bogged down by Feeling Overwhelmed by sadness....In My life of helping psychiatric cases try and fit in to the world they understand little, and feel they don't belong to..I have seen much of this kind of thing....The people to whom this category belongs feel they have "Two Faces" The real face and the one they show the world....Sad thing is in most cases like Robins its untreatable, why...The feeling of "Not being good enough" feeling nothing they do is worthwhile..They try and try..but its all pointless to feel like anyone else, because they are not like they rest of us...Happy lives? Happy families...GREAT friends?..Want for nothing?..Its all Unreal..untrue...We all at times feel like this..Who are we? what are we worth in the eyes of others? do we have Value? to whom? for what? It is an ongoing thing in all our lives...Some can deal with it...Others as we have seen with robin can't...Sometimes we need look behind the eyes and beyond The Smile to see the real hurt going on...Not Easy?...No why? because it means we need to look inside ourselves and do some Self-examination of who do we think we are?..What do we feel about others..do we really care?....It feels good to give to a charity for something we love and care about..for me? Its the big cats..wildlife...Trees..I give to all that....but people? Nothing!! why? I feel that people can take care of themselves...But i have found, some people just like any wounded animal..don't have the Tar to deal with life as they see it, 'It never occurred to me that could ever happen...I did believe all people felt the same as me,!! I am a strong personality thanks to Mum 'n' Dad..They gave me a good stance to work it all out..But that was not always the case...I grew strong after i tuned my brain into the logic of life, and believing, Life is what you make of it..never rely on others to make you happy...Find something happy in all you do..I have found Music of all kinds.is my lifeblood, My road to a happy heart..And all the fun crazy things i got up to...silly /daft/stupid things is what makes you YOU.....Keep hold of that its real..it's who your are...Just remember..you are a work of art...you come round just once in a lifetime...You need to learn to love yourself why? Look how long you have to live with YOU...If you don't care about you? How do you expect others to care!!....In the words of Spock..: "Live long and prosper"...x
The Things we do for Ourselves die with us..The things we do for others lives on.. :roll: Live on in the hearts of others.........Be Kind...Help when you can...smile to all who need it.... :)

What a lovely comment! And so very true.

May I put another, maybe simplistic view?

Who defines a "psychiatric case"? And maybe, just maybe, instead of expecting and pressurising people to fit in with the world around them, we can look at it from a different angle..and realise that it's the world itself that is screwed up? Who makes the decisions as to what and what isn't acceptable in our society? The pressures that are put on us from birth onwards to conform to what society expects of us? Aiming, striving, achieving, always pushing for better because, well..that's what people do.
Who defines what is "normal"? And who defines what is "worthwhile"? Why should we have "value" because surely that is dependant on the views of others?

Just chucking some thoughts out there, certainly not wanting to be dismissive of the original post. :)
i heard on the news that some morons have been abusing his daughter on social media sites.
Ladybird, you have the ability to read minds.....my mind at least!! I'm in total agreement, your thoughts on this subject are the way forward, and I have been practicing this thought pattern for a year or two now....I believe they call it 'insight'. It has also helped my husband's life span, before I adopted this wonderful insight he wouldn't have stood a chance of seeing his next birthday!! Treez xx
I think this is beautiful, only one minute long
