A thought came to me this morning and I wanted to share it. I think there are many routes one can take to get to the same destination. The one thing that each route has in common is that the person walking down it must be willing to walk long enough.
One day, Alice had come to a fork in the road.“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
And that’s the point of my analogy: If you want to get better mentally, it doesn’t matter what road you take, be it medication, therapy, prayer, science, etc. If you want to get better you WILL keep walking and you CAN find the same destination as someone else who went another way. We should not condemn anyone for their means of getting better. Medication may be one person’s saving grace, nature may be another’s. One person may make science the religion that drives them (look up Saganism) and another may make Christianity their religion. What a person decides works for them is not for us to dispute, unless of course the outcome is stagnancy or reversion. I will share many eclectic means of healing on this section of my site not just because I may use a particular method but because I see the potential in someone else to use it.
So if you’re reading this and you aren’t quite where you want to be, that’s OK. Just keep walking. <3
