53.       FACE IT

Except your fate
And except you being you
Don’t just believe in others
Believe in yourself.
But believe you have problems
And you can cope with it
With the joint help of others like you,
The professional mental health carerers
Family and community.
Do not try to escape it
Try to concur it
By making you an extraordinary person.
Learn that everybody is not perfect
Not even the professionals,
Family and community.
Learn that you have shortcomings
And that you are human.
Know your symptoms well
Ask others to identify them
Use them to start to build from
And you will become better.
Realize you are not an island
And hide in yourselves
You are part of a continent
Called global mankind
And we work better together.
