is that your idea of banter, because it just makes you sound overweight.

there is no getting away from the fact that you chose your little box.
the worst thing that can be said about society is that it makes becoming a wage slave the easy option. because there are lots of menial tasks which rich people are prepared to pay poor people to do.

the other options all require you to apply effort and take risks but your choice not to do either of those things doesnt mean they don’t exist.

No struggle here.

What I am getting at is are they a mental illness? There are a lot of conflicting opinions on this in the psychological community. What I mean is, is it a way to label people with unsatisfactory personality traits as pathological? People’s personality develop and change in small degrees throughout life as we learn from life’s lessons.

No, some are just self centered twats.
A PD is no different, there are many cases of people with ASPD diagnosed in their 20s that no longer meet the criteria 10 years later. The same for borderline personality as one becomes better at dealing with strong emotions.

Not even remotely comparable.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot as a lot of my therapy sessions revolve around the way I think, percieve, and handle different situations. I’ve come to the realization that I don’t see my approach as wrong, it’s not the norm people find it strange I take care of myself and choose not to get deeply involved but I see it as an effective strategy.

So why bother about it on mental health forums staring at your navel sharing your special insights of the deeply affected by the sh!t you dumped on your head.
So from my perspective I am expected to change to adapt to a society that I fundamentally disagree with to have any reasonable measure of success, as we live in a society that will turn on you and punish you for stepping out of your little box.I think I despise the fact that I have to do this to accomplish anything, and I despise myself even more for actually doing it, and believe me I’ve tried it all my own way and was headed for homelessness or prison, so it is what it is I guess.

Dramatic
What is YOUR experience.

Society isn't the problem.
You are looking to be validated like you are anything special and different, but society in fact, doesn't give a damn.

You know, I've watched PD transformation in the flesh, right before my very eyes.
PD is just another word for arsehole, with an audience dumb enough to believe their bs.

Patterns of stupidy and belief in their own projected delusions?
Oh yes. Just because the other believes they are a good liar, doesn't suggest the receiver isn't seeing through their bs, does it?
