Every mood has me questioning myself these days since the diagnoses.
Is this emotion an overreaction?
Is it justified?
Is this my mental illness or is this me?
I have seen posts on bipolar groups of others questioning the same thing. It’s nice that someone can relate but there isn’t a real “fix” to this issue. No pill is going to help you differentiate between mental illness and your true Self.
I believe this is where acceptance comes into the scene. I must learn to accept my ill brain, learn how to live on medication, and learn how to navigate life with the only 🧠 I have.
We all must learn how to accept this harsh reality and know the truth. No, we did not choose this and no, it’s not temporary.
I really believe that if we truly accept our whole Self, we can be a beacon for others to see and look up to. I mean if you’re a 💩 person to the ones you love, there’s always a way we can change ourselves, but I’m talking about accepting your truth.
