Language and concepts

Having an adequate vocabulary to properly express experiences and thought processes is crucial to maintaining a healthy mind. I know there have been google searches that have granted me comfort and relief when I’ve found out there is a word for what I was experiencing. In addition, discovering that others share the same unconventional viewpoints and beliefs as myself has literally kept me sane. For example, it was quite satisfying when I came across the concept of animism held by Native Americans, and lately I’ve been finding solace in the works of Jung. These are just a couple of examples, there have been times I’ve met an individual or have had conversations with people on social media groups that have greatly alleviated me from feelings of distress and loneliness by sharing resonating ideas.

Are there any instances of this in your life? What are they? I’d love to hear about them.
