Too often when we have struggles (especially mental health issues), others begin to refer to us as our struggles. For example, if someone has Bipolar Disorder, others will say he or she IS bipolar. That is just not true. He or she may HAVE bipolar as a part of them…but that disorder (or any other disorder) is not the total of that person’s existence. People have issues…people are not issues.
OK…so it’s a well documented fact that our brains look for patterns even when there are no patterns. I took this photograph on a beach in Mexico and even though I KNOW there is no pattern…I see John Lennon, Jesus, Bob Marley, and a cast member from Nightmare on Elm Street. Humans are fascinating.
