Sanity

Who are the “sane”, from the perspective of a schizophrenic person?

Sane people are worldly-wise. They have been around the block a bit. They have a healthy cynicism about new or unusual ideas, and know the workings of the world.

When you look into the eyes of a sane person, there is belief– and also a great deal of doubt.

Because sane people tend to dismiss the strange or irrational, or, perhaps, they “rationalize” it, their thinking takes on a logical, solid, almost material quality.

When sane people have a point of view, they are difficult to sway. They may believe in the same thing, essentially, their entire lives– or at least for long periods of time.

As a mentally ill person, I have always been jealous of how calmly and completely sane people can understand this world’s basic working principles. I have also often been sad about the illogical or irrational things that a sane person has to chuck out the window.

Sane people can be dreamers, but only in very conditional ways, from my view.
