In my current quest to develop some healthy self esteem, I am making myself take in what people say, and really try to digest what they say, as being genuine, and not just dismiss it, or be suspicious, as I would normally do.
Today – this comment stood out and made me giggle too!
And on a more serious note, is a huge compliment. Especially as the term ‘ridiculous’ is used in a very positive way.
It reminded me of the singer RedFoo singing ‘Let’s Get Ridiculous’ – only about intelligence, not having fun.
It was in response to this post
~~~Are you told you are lazy?~~~
Sufferers, of PTSD and Complex PTSD – are not lazy.
Stress reduction and stress management are a needed part of managing a severe disorder.
It is self care, appropriate, necessary, and a needed part of health needs.
People who didn’t know about PTSD, would look at my lifestyle now and possibly assume I am lazy.
I’m not and their opinion, is wrong, non educated, judgmental. I have a life threatening disorder, that requires continual management, so that I do not become overwhelmed and risk my life.
Many people end their lives due to severe PTSD every day. Complex PTSD is known within the trauma expert field as being the ‘mental health equivalent of cancer’.
Would these people say ‘you are lazy’ to a cancer patient? A stroke patient? No.
Other people’s opinions of me, my needs, my health – are ignored now.
If you have people accusing you of being lazy, please know, they are wrong.
