There is a type of mental illness, occurring on its own or compounding the illnesses that already exist, that is solely generated by the daily, constant attempts at reconciling contradictions in the world and the breaking down of that internal machinery over time.

I think that is partly why so many people resist acknowledging injustices and spend so much time either ignoring them or giving self-certain and reductive answers as to why they exist. When you embrace the world’s contradictions, they don’t heal you. You become some sort of better, but you never feel well.
