The word “self-aware” is a good one. I like the fact that it emphasizes that we are aware of our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and behaviors. While the word “aware” is a good one, I’d have to agree that the word “aware” in this context is more of an adverb.
There’s a reason that a lot of us think we never get to decide what’s a little strange (hint: it’s true). There’s a reason some people feel compelled to express their feelings and emotions in a way that makes them more curious. I think if we’re thinking about our own thoughts, feelings, and emotions, we’re starting to think about what we should be thinking about ourselves. I just don’t think that things will be as simple as that.
For years we (and I’m sure you) thought that people with mental illnesses were just a burden to society. But recently there’s been a ton of research into the topic. For example, last week the National Institutes of Health published a study called “Disorganized Minds: Understanding the Biological and Neurobiological Basis for Mental Disorders.
The study found that the normal brain function of those who have mental illnesses is different than the function of a normal person. It’s not that they are mentally ill, but that the disorder itself is so out of balance that it’s affecting the brain.
I think this is a good reason to not just throw around the word “mental illness” around as though it’s a disease. The term “mental illness” has been used by the press and the public for hundreds of years to describe a wide range of things, and I think it’s important to keep in mind that the definition of mental illness has to be kept in context.
I think one of the things that makes the term so dangerous is that it implies that certain people are truly crazy. This is why I think there needs to be a word for someone who is mentally ill, but not crazy. The word I was searching for was mild borderline mentally ill.
This term has been used in an overwhelming way since the time of the original movie The Day after Christmas. It’s a term that describes a person’s behaviour or mindset towards themselves. It doesn’t mean that you can’t kill yourself. It means that you’re unable to kill yourself, but you may be able to. The term is used to describe someone who is unable to kill themselves.
I would argue that the term sits well with the phrase “mild borderline mentally ill”. It is an accurate depiction of our mental condition and can be applied to anyone, but especially to mentally ill people. I think a better term might be “severe borderline mentally ill.” It takes a lot more effort to be mentally ill than to be borderline mentally ill, because a mild borderline mentally ill is still a borderline mentally ill.
