This piece is a part of a series called “now i’m here”. The series came about as I was halfway through the end of undergrad and frustrated with the lack of quality across the board within my program which essentially led to demotivation and no push or drive to actually create anything worthwhile. I felt guilty at times for being lazy (or feeling lazy, even though this has a lot to do with chemical imbalance) but I’d see the amount of effort put in by some of my peers and it was really disheartening.
Through this series I also realized the importance of emphasizing that I care about so many things and around the time I was finding out things about my brain and how it functions doesn’t necessarily help me from time to time as I find myself constantly giving things either too much, too little, or not enough of my attention–– starting ideas and never finishing them.
I care about being honest and I think telling stories or showing people things that they might relate to or even empathize or sympathize with is a way to facilitate a lot of discussions. We all essentially experience a lot of the same things in many different ways with many different outcomes. I think acknowledgment of those experiences and feelings are important.
