Compassion and Compatibility

Its meaning is congruent to every ones’ existing harmoniously or working with one another; even forgiving. In the Middle English language and Middle Latin language the word is ‘compatibilis’, in Latin another word is ‘compati’ which is compassion or sorrow for suffering with the urge to help; compassion then again is pity, compati in Latin then again means to feel pity.
Mental health programs nowdays are trying to provide direction for consumers who want and need to grow beyond their mental illness and live decent lives in the real world. As consumers we seek someone to listen to us, and lead us in a direction where we feel there is someone to help us learn to care for ourselves. We are like children growing again, learning again. We seek support spiritually, in our lives while in Recovery, in the beginning this is only sight and sound distorting images in our life. Then we begin to find through the different methodologies of treatment in a Mental Health Recovery Program that spirituality is the real life of our thoughts and actions and responses and that we can control our lives through understanding spiritually.
We try to overcome relapsing. Drugs and alcohol slowly become a realization of our lives that these substances and the way of life lived for such is only a poison of our true beliefs and visions. We take the time to begin to see, through not only social support but also through the mind and eyes of professionals, clergy, friends and family members while we are connected to Mental Health.
Compatibility and compassion are the words of romance and survival, of caring and knowing that through a Recovery Mental Health Program, people who are living in anguish whose mental distress hinders them can change and begin to focus on a new chapter in their lives. Through strength, structure and reassurance the negative aspects of which Mental Health clients were bonding to can diminish and consumers can be lead to stand again with pride and feel free to rebuild their lives without pain and sorrow hindering them with indecision and addictions.
