People with mental illness, such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, etc. have serious mental health issues, of course.

But many of them eventually overcome it and live happy, productive lives. They really can become mentally healthy over time with the help of psychiatric treatment.

However, if you have mental illness, no matter how much you improve, you will always have mental/emotional problems.

But that's the case for everyone, even for those who have never been mentally ill. Even the mentally healthiest individuals have issues.

We're all human, after all.

If your goal is to never have emotional problems one day, then it's time for a more realistic goal.

My goal today is live out today without any problems at all. My goal for tomorrow will be to live out tomorrow without any problems. One day at a time. The odd day can hold a challenge or two. But come the end of those days I am just happy to have seen another day off. Never one for thinking ahead of time. I simply face each day as it happens.

There's a lot to recommend that approach, Cuchculan. I use it myself in getting through depression.
