I have two definitions, and they're based on context:

1) A mental disorder, but I think it starts when you push away your family and friends. Then illusions, voices, false senses come after that.

For me, insanity is getting pushed beyond your limits and you can't control yourself and what you do. You just go on impulses. You don't listen to reason
