Are we? Or is that term outdated? Does it need updating?
I am hesitant to post a title like this, because I don’t believe I am a victim!
But, in my mind, many of us here in the blogosphere, are the 50% of people who actually give a damn!
That’s never to say we are victims, but our situations are oftentimes more fragile than other people’s.
Because of this, we must advocate for ourselves when we are able, and leave the rest to our friends in battle!
There are so many examples of the marginalized (people who, for one reason or another, experience difficulty in modern day society), that I just want to build us all up!
We each deserve some amount of contentment, happiness, and the like.
And, when we are able… we must fight for it!
Like, the fact that I always write about my troubles. Maybe I could switch it up some, because I have so many good days (not)!?
I write about my difficulties usually, because I want you to know of the challenges that people with severe mental illness deal with.
And, all of this is not to say that we deserve some kind of special consideration, but I tend to have a problem with individuals who lump everyone together and say, “we all have problems.”
Aside from blogging, how are you fighting for better days? Do you have a philosophy on how much of your struggle you share, and how many of your good days you talk about?
And, what about people, making statements such as, “we all have problems?” Is that even fair to those suffering from chronic health issues?
I have a lot of questions in this post. Please answer as many as you can!
