existential insanities

"inessential insanities are a brittle amalgamation of ambition, aggression, and pre-adolescent anxiety - garbage that should have been dumped long ago. essential insanities are those impulses one instinctively senses are virtuous and correct, even though peers may regard them as coo coo.
inessential insanities get one-self in trouble with one-self. essential insanities get one in trouble with others. it's always preferable to be in trouble with others. in fact, it may be essential."

-tom robbins, still life with woodpecker

which type do you concern yourself with? and which one is more sane, if either?
