The Painful Illusions of a Sick Mind


Recommended Posts

It's the same brutal struggle each morning. The fight between anxiety and logic takes epic proportions. My altered instincts vividly remind me of all the possible dangers I will face if I'll leave the house. My logic strongly opposes the instincts: all those dangers are highly improbable, most of them are pure paranoia. The battle's outcome is decided by negative motivation: if I don't leave the house I'll loose my job. But I NEVER regret leaving my "safety zone", even if negative motivation is the reason and not my courage. Because only at work the logic wins. It's the only place where I feel useful and appreciated. And only there my healing feels like an unquestionable certitude. But it's all an illusion, a foolish fantasy, and for the rest of the day, my fear and anxiety wins unchallenged.
