It’s when you think that your dysfunctional state is completely normal.
You spend your days walking around wondering why you have anxiety or depression issues as your childhood and current relationships were/are pretty standard.
It’s hard to get out of the haze of dysfunction when you can’t see it. Usually it takes a breakdown or large scale problem to take the idea seriously that you may have an issue.
If you’re lucky, a friend will put a mirror in front of your face. Most don’t because they don’t want to upset the other, but a true friend would.
When you do see, it’s like becoming conscious of your breathing. You forgot that your chest goes up and down several times a minute and you haven’t paid attention to your breath for weeks.
Look for mirrors. Ask friends to be honest and reassure them you really want it.
“Thought can organize the world so well that you are no longer able to see it.” – Anthony De Mello
