Matt Walsh had a great segment on the way individuals zealously defend their status as “mentally ill,” particularly with regards to anxiety, ADHD, and the like.
My Commentary: It’s a lot like Congress. EVERYBODY hates Congress as a whole (tons of polls show this). Yet, EVERYBODY re-elects their own Congress Creep virtually every time (incumbents hauve a 90% re-election rate). So, just like with mental illness, people will admit there is a problem with the concept universally (excessive diagnosis, exaggeration of the problem), but fail to recognize their PARTICULAR attachment to it.
At any rate, always examine your conscience, folks (and go to Confession!). God has many fun and wonderful ways of revealing our faults and frivolities to us. It’s simply a matter of whether we are willing to take a look. Oh, how many of the solutions to our festering problems are . . . hidden . . . in . . . plain . . . sight.
