    expect to be accepted

    Can a schizophrenic ever expect to be accepted by normal society? Normal to me is the vast majority of people who are welcomed and accepted by nearly everyone. I think people with mental illness, especially schizophrenics, are the lowest of the low and rejected by the majority. We scare people...

    Found peace

    Feel so much better this week. I've accepted probably for the first time in myself. That maybe the most I can achieve is where I am now. And this is the best I will ever be. And giving up on everything is what I've needed to do to find peace. I'm a total failure and that is my place in life...

    Acceptance

    I've accepted who I am. I don't belong here. I am just one of these people who cannot get it right. Everything I do is wrong or not good enough. What's the point any more? I can't speak my mind as no one wants to listen, that, or no one would 'tolerate' my views and opinions. I feel like an...

    Being accepted by people, self acceptance & forbidden narratives

    i have always felt that aspects of me are at odds/conflict with the rest of humanity - Not feeling a part of the human race. From having some very unusual non-ordinary states/extreme states of mind - the abysmal/barbaric treatment of forced sections/drugs - the lack of any genuine...

    I feel inferior to others/ social anxiety

    I've only accepted that I have social anxiety now and I don't really know what to do but it's putting me down. Before I always ignored it or was in denial but now I feel weak because of it. I realise it's because of my low self esteem and lack of confidence, like why am I afraid to say what I...
