The true definition of the word MENTAL is: “an action performed by or existing in the mind: mental arithmetic; a mental note. Or pertaining to intellectuals or intellectual activity.” It’s only when it’s used as a noun or an adjective that the connotation of “mental” becomes stigmatic.

Nowadays, the word mental itself is used as a descriptive adjective to identify someone different than normal. (What is “normal” anyway?) We are all different. It doesn’t matter what our differences are. The fact is not even Siamese twins are equal in every way. Being different is not a four letter word!
Learn To Embrace Our Differences
The way I live and how I cope with my “mental ability” is different than how you may cope with your specialty of the mind. Let’s not reject everything because it doesn’t fit the norm; let’s embrace our differences. The one common thread we may have is living with a mental illness.
