Your perception is dissimilar to mine. The sensory information you process is unlike mine, so our perception of what we see and feel is different. If you have a mental illness, perception can be skewed. Those with a mental illness often feel locked in a world without a key to their future. They see their life disappear, while those around them move toward a fulfilling life.
"Life awaits, meaningful friendships, inspiring work, independence, your place in the world. They’re all waiting, just outside your door. Now imagine if that door was locked. No key, no side exits, you’re trapped - while everybody else blossoms around you. That’s what it feels like growing up with a mental illness." Perception, TNT
Find your key and change your perception.
