The dangers of framing mental health issues as an identity

Sometimes I have too much time on my hands and it’s both a blessing and a curse. Time is finite, however for me – it triggers an irrational response of thinking. The cycle of thought is difficult to escape yet sometimes re-evaluation is needed for improved growth, awareness, and understanding. In this case, I have been pondering about the dangers of becoming ‘an issue’. Perhaps you have experienced hardships in life – so have I, so have others.

I have been guilty of creating an identity out of negativity because I could not see myself beyond those problems. I had no sense of who I am (and I still have no idea). Consequently, using my mental health issues as an adjective for ‘me’ has been the easiest option. After all, being ‘the one with the irrational mind” brings you into a family of struggling individuals, a place where you can belong.
