Silver Linings

24 Jan

I was moved to write this post after experiencing the movie, Silver Linings Playbook starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. 

This will not be a movie review but the story made some important life points.

First, people with mental health issues need access to mental health treatment. Thankfully, I have my job because some people have been given access to mental health care.

Second, people with mental health issues who get treatment usually see the world more clearly and honestly than the average folks. The average folks don’t want to believe this but it’s a simple truth. 

With this clarity and honesty, they are able to live more fulfilling and enriching lives. 

Third, in this material world (created by MaDonna in the 80’s-LOL), it is refreshing when people enjoy the simple pleasures of life like listening to the other and truly enjoying their company. And not for what they can provide (materially) but what they give of themselves to the other. 

Lastly, real people really like being around those who are truly authentic and true.
