For the past several days I have been pondering about which is the better; learned knowledge, or experiential knowledge. Or could it be a mixture of both, I am just not certain.
There is a pattern in all the blogs I have read thus far of people trying to cope with some form of mental health issue/s.
All the situations I have observed are unique, just as our fingerprints are unique to only one person. Another observation I have made is that all remedies to each of the issues also vary from person to person. These are things I do know!
What I don’t know are these:
- The situation/s leading up to the point in each individual’s crisis in mental health.
- The life experience of each unique individual.
- Other challenges that the individual is having along side the mental health challenge.
One more thing I know and that is, I cannot assume I have any answers for a person. I can only speak to the things I have experienced in my own battle with mental health.
So, I can have empathy, sympathy for the person I am listening to, for all I can do is be a pillar of support for him or her.
