I know what I sacrificed when I decided to be open about my illness. I sacrificed what people would call a normal life. I would never change any of it.
I have a pretty awesome life.
It’s interesting to see how this world works, everyone supports you, but no one wants to be with someone with schizophrenia. However, I do know, someone will see it like I do, and that will be pretty fun.
I don’t know if many people would do what I did.
This sacrifice opened my mind though to the way our world works, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
I know what I did. Possibly on purpose. I have never done what everyone else has done in my life and I don’t know if I ever will.
Label me. Judge me. Criticize me. Just remember, I won’t judge or criticize or make fun of you, ever. I accept and embrace everyone for the great qualities in them.
It’s an awesome place to be in.
So, I sacrificed something, and I knew what I sacrificed.
I would do it all again in a heartbeat.
And that to me, means something, and I hope it does to you too.
