Aiming for Instabilty

So I study Psychology and have been thinking about mental illness quite a lot recently (Interesting subject, very interesting topic). When I consider subjects I often think about the different terminology within them and analyse things I find interesting. I like your approach. 

Recently, I’ve been thinking about the term ‘mental instability’ and it’s opposite. Although most people would define it as ‘mental illness’ if you think about it there’s a lot more to it then that.

 

Firstly, it carries a lot less serious connotations than ‘illness’. You can be ‘instable’ without being ‘ill’. But can you be ‘ill’ without being ‘instable’? I think probably you can.

 

‘Stability’ is linked to lack of change and staying in one place. Isn’t that kind of a bad thing? Surely you can be ‘stably ill’ with no chance of recovery? Whilst if you’re ill and unstable, whilst this means you could make a change for the worse, you could also improve?

 

Also, isn’t change what helps us grow and improve as people? Because how can we move forwards without moving at all? (Only on escalators, floor escalators (apparently named moving walkways) and they aren’t even relevant).

 

So those people who smugly look down on the majority of the hair pulling masses because they’re ‘stable’ better start looking up in my opinion.  Obviously, we all have things to learn from each other, but those of us who are instable are surely more open to learning? Because we’re forever rocking backwards and forwards, round and round, questioning the ground beneath us. Questioning the things that hold us down. 

 

And, in my view, it’s the unstable that are funnier to be around, because they’re always changing and adapting to new situations. You never know what to expect when you’re talking to a nutter. 

 

That last line was purely for effect by the way, but also to show how easy it is to label. And how easily it roles off the tongue. 

 

So I’m going to make a decision, I’m going to decide to label myself before others can, and I’m going to be stably unstable. Because I have no idea how I want be, or what I will become, but I know I don’t ever want to be finished changing. I never want to be held down by the confines of my own personality and what people expect of me. I cant seem to find a suitable way to fully express the fact that I agree with you. 

 

Stably Unstable. 

 

It’s the way to live (Amen! (to show celebration rather than relate to religion)). Accepting that I get upset, and I don’t always know why. That I feel happy, when it would be more socially acceptable not to be. And accepting that it’s all part of me, and that sometimes unpredictability can be good.

My First Post

Note to Pseudonym : That was one freaky noise, I kept hoping NPH would turn up in a car with shrooms and we’d go on  an adventure.  Aha, people going to find this kind of stuff weird if they don’t read a lot. Oh well though, that’s their fault. We’re having fun. 🙂 

Also, I think I managed to post it in the right place. Fingers crossed anyway. Yayy, we so good at computers!

Right, first post, part of me feels like its a momentous occasion (hell yeah gurll!), and part of me feels like no-ones going to read this so why post anything about anything.(Bit morbid aha). But there has to be a first post, if you don’t have a first one, then you cant have a 2nd one, (yes, I typed 2nd because I swear I’ll spell it wrong otherwise and look like a small brained twatnose (you never sound like a twatnose! I find brackets inside brackets confusing for some reason..)) or a 3rd one and so-on.

Alot of my posts will be pretty varied. Anything from about how i dropped my toast to my view on politics and the meaning of life or some shit.  I’m kind of assuming and hoping that no-one will read this, because if people do, then they can judge and say mean and hurtful things  and that’s never fun. Just pretty upsetting. So if you do read this and want to say something unnecessarily hurtful, please don’t. Just close the page, problem solved.

Assuming people read these posts, and keep reading them for some peculiar reason here are some titbits (or is it tidbits?) (I vote titbits) of possibly helpful information. I will use a fair few naughty swears in my posts, there may even be some references to drugs and alcohol – oh how very scandalous (ohhh), I thought I ought to warn you, don’t want your panties getting in a twist, or your bison’s getting in a jam. (Ahaha, like this!) If you have any questions about or any issues with anything I post, please comment, email  or whatever (you can find the email in the about us). 

I have no clue how often me or Pseudonym will post, um, hopefully at least once a week. Maybe more, or maybe less.  (I’ll aim for one a week to start with, unless I’m inspired to do more. But we’ll get the feel for it soon I’m sure).

If you’re still reading at this point, thank you for reading, I appreciate it, you’re just completely swell!! And I promise i’ll try and make future posts a whole load better. (Yeeehaw!)
