Normality, Psychosis, Butterscotch waterfall and Julio
in the 90's, I took many classes and been in group talks
over many subjects, ending with the notion everyone has
their own type of normality.
Culture is made up, a mix of parts and from places so culture is not real!
So it is best to make your own culture making your own normality!
"You can see neurosis from below - as a sickness - as most psychiatrists see it.
Or you can understand it as a compassionate man might: respecting the neurosis
as a fumbling and inefficient effort toward good ends." Abraham Maslow
Normality, Psychosis, Butterscotch waterfall and Julio? Go see the videos.
I really did not like the DSM's they seemed conservatarded even in the
90's the cure was pushed to drug, drug. I am a Humanistic Psychology type,
so my view is not good on how Psychology is in my state by the masses.
Is pushing the drugs greed? More exposing the problem in therapy is needed
than concealing it with medication.
More time in therapy needs to be spent in revealing than concealing!
"The foundation of genuine helping lies in being ordinary. Nothing special.
We can only offer ourselves, neither more nor less, to others we have in fact
nothing else to give.Anything more is conceit; anything less is robbing those
in distress. Helping demands wholeheartedness, but people find it hard to
give of themselves to others. Why? In essence we are afraid to offer ourselves
for fear we will prove insufficient, and if all that we have and are is not enough,
what then? We are afraid to risk using simply our own warmth and caring,
and as a result the thousands of therapy techniques
which are becoming increasingly popular are intended to conceal
rather than reveal."
Psychiatrist Allen Frances has been critical of proposed revisions
to the DSM-5. In a 2012 New York Times editorial, Frances warned that
if this DSM version is issued unamended by the APA, it will
“medicalize normality and result in a glut of unnecessary and harmful
drug prescription.” In a December 2, 2012 blog post in Psychology Today,
Frances lists the ten “most potentially harmful changes” to DSM-5:
It is the fact your degree is only valued on the paper it's printed on,
and the masses out there have Master hillbilly degrees in Psychology and
push such harmful resolve to drug the patient first, being how the
pharmaceutical money flows they say "Your, stupid, your stupid!"
if you go against the BS!
Or it could be the country thinking a Special kind of stupid, backward
thinking, your smart and that makes you stupid. Your considerate so that
makes you intrusive. Country thinking relating to their master degree at their
redneck college they went to so they can say "I'm just as smart as you!"
without being in the fire learning what is norm! In a high up judgmental
position without being in life, in the real type life is stupid.
Sort of like doing your master's
without a thesis then to pop up
like you are the smartest thing
on the block in for it for the
money. Doesn't make it so! It's
like going to a "McDonald
college" vs Berkeley.
"Drag a hundred-dollar bill
through a trailer park, you
never know what you'll find."
Where is this going? Lets see where this goes and that is the point!
Usually one gets out in the world and sees what they learned is BS
and learns better. Education starts after school, to see where it goes!
Your diploma is like a Olympic torch, it's a start of your education!
Like your drivers license, just because you have one doesn't mean you
know how to drive a car. You learn down the road!
I dated a lady hairdresser in the late 1990's that smoked weed and liked
to go at gay bars being she had a hard life and a death treat from a biker gang
and she felt safe at a gay bar that was her security. I'm not gay, she was not gay
it was her security to go there. On the first date at a nice restaurant she went
to the bathroom and threw-up everywhere. Nervous, high etc she got sick,
so I took that cougar back to her environment which was the gay bar and all
was ok it's her normality there.
Also had a lady tell me "We like you." "My other personality likes you and I
trust her so I'm ok with it!" Also had a co-worker that had a
Corpus Callosotomy done. With me all of those things I seen is called life
experiences that I can relate by my education I had and seen this stuff with
my own eyes and I recognize what that is.
To make anything of value you have to get out there and do it!
You can't win the lottery if you don't but a ticket!
Get yourself out of the dark ages, you can't see much in the dark!
My Psychology is from the 90' but all relates to the now.
Pointless over internet use is an addiction and paranoia on who says what
about you on Facebook is all the same as it ever was, it never will change.
This story is not meant to be inflammatory just point noted factual because
patients are human not zombies needing medication. I do say we need more
Humanistic Psychology these days. Medicines are needed but to cure not deal
with it, unless you are in that state of pure hell in that case you might need to
be on such medication to nock off that top a bit.
There are other ways of getting a cure like Psychedelic Therapy. It would be
the shock to cure many without the life time of Medicines. It's worth looking at
when looking at the way life is for many with the current mindset of
So what is normal? It's just to the fact of if people call you crazy then the
judgement of such is noted to be an issue of how educated the people around
you are. A norm in LA is not the norm in Alabama! People that call others crazy
in a bad way, don't understand life themselves.
But also normal should not be detrimental for ones self in the reasoning of their
self image reflecting their place in the world. Have you ever been to some town
and ran across those few people that dress up like a Pirate, a guy in a dress or
a 40 year old Gothic lady. Every town has someone, but the point is what is
behind it. Is it to get attention? A stagnate mindset not willing to grow out of it.
A guy in a dress might be stressed to be who he is, not willing to make it happen
because the operation cost too much or other factors.
So in what case it might be the point is to ask what is behind it, why do you do
the things you do! It's ok to do them but to know if it's not detrimental to you!
~~~~~Because the more life goes on, the more “normal” feels out of reach.
So I’ve chosen to accept the unconventional and actually feed off of it.
No one needs to approve of my life but me.
Yes, at times I have to remind myself of the benefits of the unbeaten path,
but I’ve given myself the freedom to create my own “normal.”
And you know what? It has helped me live in the moment, embrace opportunity,
and accept what is. I’m listening to myself – not the “shoulds” about the life
I want to lead. To be clear, I’m not against the normal life by any means.
I’m sure one day I’ll be in a version of it myself. But I do want to emphasize
that in reality, there is no normal life. There is just life.
And I am sure as hell living it!
"Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to
that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream
and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick.
This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted,
who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood.
This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done.
By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it's a feather bed."
"Feeling unstable having crazy thoughts testing your limitations all the time."
Is growth it's a part in your life finding who you are.
It's finding out your normality was never normal in the first place.
So you push on to find out your own self!
