    the very act of making your experience public is the sign of your mental and moral strength, not weakness.

    Nothing is healthier and saner than the ability to observe one 's self in all sincerety, and the sharing of what you observe with the others is the sign of strong connection with the world.From your words I conclude that you have fought against what was victimizing you without ever giving up. And keeping up with thefight is all we can do.

    We have an illusion of people who have had no challenges in their lives so they are mentally altogether while others are not.There is not a single human being on earth who has not been challenged one way or another. These challenges we face without having had the choice to opt out of them are as human as the nose on our faces. Life will bring them. It is how we deal with them however is the indicator of mental and spiritual strength.

    I have never became my anxieties, for example. I fight with them by simply being aware of them. I dissect them study them until they become toothless tigers. The best part of the experience is that the realization of the foreignness of them. That our depressions and anxieties are not who we really are. That they are mental projections, caricatures masquarading as  
     true self which is beyond all measure or definition.

    People who are truly mentally unstable are the ones who have no sense of this true self whatsoever. They are literally incapable of self observation. Those turn into the tyrantus and the abusers. Having no control inside they attempt to normalize by controlling others which also doesn't work.

    Thanks for reading.
