    But I remember everything.......

    Thanks for the reply but I'm not sure I agree with everything. Our past experiences do define failure at least to a new employer who will not want someone with years of mental health problems and unemployment. Survival of the fittest exists in our every day life today, it just means what job and relationships we have as opposed to getting eaten by predators as it used to be to our ancient ancestors. I also have massive difficulties with being optimistic when I have felt so down for so long and cannot see any reason to be optimistic.

    Loved reading your insightful appraisal. Feels like you're on the cusp of understanding all this but you naturally default to our SA-typical sense of hopelessness. Take a leap of faith past that and you'll find all it takes is a shift in attitude. You cannot change what you are but you can always change your attutude towards it. *You* define success and failure, not your past experiences. And who wants to be 'normal'? Stuff that, way too boring. Normality is just an illusion, a utopian model we create in our heads based on people we perceive as uber-confident and successful. People like L'Wren Scott, Mick Jagger's girlfriend who killed herself a couple of days ago. You see? Don't strive for normality. Just make the best of *you*. Therein lies the path to happiness.

    Friday afternoon musings with butterflies.

    Thanks, I went on another outing today as it was sunnyish but managed to stay more under control after thinking about my mood yesterday.

    In the Company of Strangers

    Thanks Belinda, I am trying to write in the way that I think (however strange!) rather than in the way I think I should write.

    Beautiful picture. I often venture out on lone photography outings too so I could really empathise.
