It took death to figure out life. You have to live each day the best you can. Treat people better than you want to be treated because maybe you will be the person that will change that persons outcome. To make this world a better place we need to start with ourselves. Strive to change the world. Even if you fail. The world will be better just because you tried
Acceptance became when someone pointed out that Bipolar is no different then any other medical condition. There is a huge stigma about those with any mental illness. We are not "crazy". Every day can be a struggle and without the support of friends and family it becomes even worst.
There are days when I prefer to be antisocial. Not because I am going to act all crazy, but because emotionally I just cant handle talking with people. If I don't call, text or email you back, it is not because I don't want to, I just can't at this time. There are days that I need to talk. Some days I am so happy the world seems great, then there are those days that nothing seems to be right or matter.
Billy has been my main support for years, and some days it is a hard job, because no matter what he says or does it is the wrong thing. He can have the best intentions in the world, but during that moment, I can not see the compassion.
I put this out here because I keep getting messages phone calls and text with am I ok, what is wrong, then the why aren't you answering me so on and so forth. I appreciate the text. If I do not respond, don't take it to heart. I never mean to hurt people.
Lastly, there are those who do not accept this, and I have lost "friends" because they just don't want to deal with this "drama", that is fine, I no longer get mad because someone walks out of my life because some time I wish I could too. But those of you who choose to stick around - Thank you!
