I was in a behavior out patient program for 2 weeks. It's much better than the hospital therapy groups. The counselor was teaching to be ourselves and dont compare yourself to other people and alot of people don't believe in mental illness and that we have no control over it. Here is something he stated

Just be yourself

It's a lot simpler to be yourself and not worry than try to be the person you think your family, friends, and strangers want you to be. Who really knows what they want anyway? A life of integrity is one lived as your natural self, not as some fictional character made up to accommodate and please those around you. So be yourself in all your glorious quirkiness. You may be surprised how many people like you you for just that.

I will post more later that I learned from the program
