You're assuming I'm talking about you as an individual. What ever gave you the impression I'm talking about your problem specifically?Voulan said:I'm actually astounded by your reaction. I've never once met a person who displays such ignorance towards mental disabilities, and frankly, I'm extremely disappointed. I never once said I haven't got help, or have used it as an excuse, or attempted to get past it. You're assuming I'm only whining about it.
Wanting to do something about it is one thing, actually doing something about it is another. And I've never said it can be just "turned off", I realize it takes effort, work and time.Why would I want to not do something about it? Do you think it's something that can merely be turned off or stopped with the right "attitude"?
And in those cases I have no sympathy for their complaints or mewling. If someone has an issue and there are ways of resolving it why should I respect their decision NOT to resolve it? Just because it's a mental issue? I don't give a shit.You've displayed a total lack of sympathy or caring. Perhaps the people you've met have genuine reasons for not wanting help or wanting to tackle the issue, and that's fine - not everyone can handle these things, and they may have more extreme cases.
Sure I can. I can like a person but dislike a certain aspect of them. Someone could be a person I would otherwise enjoy associating with if not for their social anxiety.But it is a type of thought process wired into their brains, and it's very difficult to stop. It's not a "quality" in someone that you can choose to hate.
Of course everyone can't be perfect all the time. I'm not demanding perfection provided they don't "demand" my attention or affection. I can choose to like whoever I want to like for whatever reasons I deem valuable. I am under zero obligation to cater to people who I feel aren't worth my time - for whatever reason, mental issues or otherwise.I'm sorry if that "disappoints" you, but not everyone can be perfect all the time. I hope your girlfriend does well, though.
And she is doing well, a lot - she claims - thanks to me and my attitude towards helping her.
