The Three Problems of Psychiatry

You know those white dashed lines separating the lanes in a highway?  How long are they?  Answer: _____________  Most people I ask say 3 feet.  The real answer is 10 feet.  Surprised?  And that’s the first problem in psychiatry: perspective.  Your perspective is always driving at 60mph, so they look 3 feet long.  Unless you change your perspective, you never get to see the truth.  Worse, much worse, you go through life confident they are three feet.

Which brings us to the second problem: closed mindedness.  Even though I’ve told you the truth, you still don’t believe it—that’s how powerful your perspective is.  “He must be talking about some other lines, maybe in France?”  Unless you change your perspective, you will never be open to the truth, to the discovery that what you have thought, for your entire life, is wrong.  Unless you get out of your car and measure those lines, you’ll never accept the truth.

Which brings us to the third problem: if you do try and change your perspective, get out and measure those lines, you will be quickly dispatched by a minivan to the face for your lack of faith.

Even thought this isnt a highway or has no relation whatsoever (even if it was a highway) to this post, check it out. its the US Mexican border!
