I was always kinda good at math and I read about this concept a little while ago. So here it is in Barbie words. 1). Crazy + Crazy = Crazy (that's the easy, obvious one). 2). Crazy + Kinda Sane = Also crazy, because the Crazy usually turns the Kinda Sane, crazy. 3). Kinda Sane + Kinda Sane = The only one that's not crazy.
So of course it's neverrrr US that's crazy. It's always the other person, the other driver or the other person's dog staring at you weirdly. So let me tell you where this is going. You need to do the work on your own crazy self FIRST. Do that before you firmly blame the other and convince yourself that they are in fact, the crazy one.
I am the first to admit that I am in fact - NUTS. I have issues and triggers and massive fears of that have come from seemingly nowhere that all of a sudden show up during a Reiki session or a random night watching Suits for the 800th time. I think that I have an issue sorted in my mind from two years ago then all of a sudden I am hearing the same conversation in my head over and over again, trying to figure out what I "shoulda coulda woulda" said. But to me, kinda sane means that you are able to say what your triggers are, that you are attempting to work on them, you see and recognize you have flaws. You are not perfect, or perfectly sane, but no one is. If EVERYONE else around you are the crazy ones, if THEY are always the ones with the "problem", if THEY always seem to be leaving you or or or.. maybe mayyyyyybe it could be considered that you could use some inside work too. Worth a shot - all you have to lose is a little crazy. Just something to think about next time Alice asks if you want to jump in the rabbit hole. Love Xo
