Psychology Has It Backwards

Episode 67: My Diagnosis Is Not Who I Am

Mental illness diagnoses are actually snapshots of times when someone is caught up in dysfunctional thinking, not descriptions of their character or being. People can become frightened by a diagnosis, as if it was a truth about them, and feel hopeless. As people realize their power to think and experience their thinking as real, they understand when to take thoughts to heart and when to allow them to pass. They see how quieting their minds allows wisdom to restore equilibrium. They know their innate resilience as their true nature, sometimes obscured by the insecure thoughts called diagnoses.
