Insanity does not mean the death of the self. I believe it’s a recoverable journey.

There is a widespread belief among us that losing your mind is a one way, irreversible process to be avoided at all costs. Without education it’s always going to be treated that way because of the idea that death exists as a final destination. A destination which once arrived at and transformed into, cannot be fully understood or documented for the clarity and benefit of the others you leave behind. This is why death is the first great taboo and mental illness comes a close second. In terms of real human benefit, what we all need to have faith in, as we develop and grow as people is that although you may unfortunately lose your mind at some point in your life, you may also fully recover your sense of self.
