When you come back to com­mon sense.

I lis­te­ned to this while wri­ting this post, try it while you read :o)

One year later, this tag comes back. It makes me think it’s more impor­tant than ever. Let’s see why. I won­der if you real­ly need an expla­na­tion of the rea­so­ning behind the fact that self-care is impor­tant. Like last year, I won’t focus on the phy­si­cal aspect of the concept, but rather the psy­cho­lo­gi­cal aspect. The mind leads the body. If it doesn’t, the body will act irra­tio­nal­ly and unpre­dic­ta­bly. Let me point out two very dif­ferent examples.

Two people attract each other. Pas­sion burns in them and bet­ween them. They will want only one thing, that nothing inter­rupts this com­bus­tion, that it can burn inten­se­ly. Without the mind being able to mode­rate the course of things, there will be pas­sion, but there might also be mis­takes. The mind, the kill­joy, will “dis­turb” the situa­tion, but what would hap­pen if it didn’t?

Taken from a real fact. A parent in a poor men­tal state is dri­ving on the high­way with their chil­dren in the back seat. In a moment of weak­ness, they steer the wheel in a flash of mad­ness wishing to end their suf­fe­ring by brin­ging their trea­sures with them. They chan­ged their mind in a frac­tion of a second and tried to repair their mis­take, but to no avail. Rol­lo­ver fol­lo­wed by a violent awa­ke­ning. The person’s mind, faced with so much inten­si­ty, and alrea­dy wea­ke­ned, decides to bow out and leaves to take refuge we know where. Left to them­selves, this per­son falls into an irra­tio­nal state and the end of the sto­ry ends with three deaths, inclu­ding two infanticides.

Taking care of your­self is, above all, asking for help. Without the strength to do so, trans­pa­ren­cy is the best option to let those around us detect our state of health. Our strength of mind is what sets us apart as a human being.
