Achievements on a different path
It took me over a year to bounce back. Luckily I had help, both from family and friends, as well from professionals.
I have always been out of sync with society and its perception of what is ‘normal': I had a deviant view on career, politics, society and wealth; add Buddhism and my stance on animal rights in this mix and it’s clear I had it coming.
My mental make-up doesn’t make it easier as well: highly intelligent, highly creative and if you want to have your kitchen installed: “I can handle that”!
These talents are not uncommon on their own, but I learned two important things last year: first that my talent combo is very rare, and second that I should stop trying to fit in – didn’t work for me in the past, will not work for me in the future.
