Building A Nation Of Snowflakes…

…there seems to be little demarcation between serious mental health issues and what often doesn’t amount to much more than lifestyle complaints.

And there’s a reason for that, isn’t there? Because it’s all part of the plan.

Experiences rarely meet expectations in a world where most of us feel sadness, fury and anxiety on a regular basis, sometimes all at once. Many of us do this without the expectation of counselling or a course of therapy to make us feel better about ourselves — but some of us don’t.

And if adults cannot grasp the difference between normal feelings and pathological ones, what chance do small schoolchildren have?

In a society where we are encouraged to be afraid of our IT support what else does anyone expect?

      I honestly think it’s going to have to get much worse before it gets better…

    Adults & teachers now project their emotions, guilt, grief etc onto children and tell them to emote. imho this is child abuse.

    eg School assembly: “Sad news, x died yesterday, x’s parents are crying, we should share their grief…counsellors in room 101” Why? Why tell them? Why obligate them?

    Let children be children, don’t force them to be mini-adults.

      Watched ‘Ambulance’ on BBS last night, young girl with ‘mental health issues’, useless parents demanding someone section her, supposedly ‘self harming’.

      When the yellow government taxi got there, it was noticeable that she wasn’t pouring with blood. I’ve had bigger scratches from my cat!
