So I was going to be done for the weekend. But I saw this meme thing. I am sad that she put her name on it. I am sure she is lovely and probably didn’t mean it the way we (my friend and I) took it but….it just brings up something that needs to be talked about…..
I tried to move on. Tried to forget it. But I couldn’t hold it back……
does that surprise anyone (if it does than you are new here…stick around)
It’s “possible” ?????????
because everyone thinks it is IMpossible?
How crazy is that a person can actually be FRIENDS with a Bipolar person?????
Can you even believe that people with Bipolar Disorder can have FRIENDS?????
mind is blown
We Bipolars can have friends…
we can also put on underwear and eat with a fork and a knife
and get this…
sometimes we even say please and thank you
it is AS IF we are just people too
people with a difference
and how about the fact that lots of Bipolars aren’t even OUT to their close friends
yep World it is SO possible to be friends with a Bipolar person…
THAT YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN KNOW YOU ARE DOING IT
they’re all scared now…
trying to see if they can peel off their friends’ “normal person” masks to see if they can reveal the grotesque creature underneath…
the Bipolar person
And YEAH if you are willing to take on a
CHARITY CASE….then it is possible to be friends with a Bipolar Person
but be prepared to WORK
you know what?
It isn’t EASY to have a relationship with ANYONE
I have fantastic wonderful amazing friends and ya know what…
Our friendships are not actually ALL about them helping ME
yeah I know it is true
I actually help THEM, listen to THEM, support THEM
I’ve listened to them vent and cry
I’ve stayed up late on the phone with them when they needed it
I’ve held them
I’ve sat with them
and I’ve been understanding
yeah ME, a Bipolar CHick, I pulled all that off
and you know what
yeah (every long once in awhile ha) I have to drag out my PATIENCE for them
that is what a relationship IS
you don’t get to be close to another person without using patience and understanding.
that goes for EVERYONE
and ALL close relationships would be pretty IMPOSSIBLE without some patience and understanding.
That is just HOW IT WORKS
Bipolars aren’t a special case because we require patience and understanding
that is what HUMANS require
A friend reminded me again of the Angelina Jolie from Girl Interrupted Issue…
normies see meme things like this and they think….
“Wow so with enough patience and understanding…you can actually be best friends with Angelina Jolie from Girl interrupted????!!!!”
and then they could think
“Now who would want to do that???”
guess where I found this little pic
I can’t even tell you…
it is too much…
okay fine I’ll tell you
I found this in an article about busting the myths surrounding Bipolar Disorder
I generally ignore those things having read thousands of them and honestly there is never anything new (pardon me I’m cranky. Blame STIGMA)
but for some reason I clicked it
it was a very nice article
but I just couldn’t get past this
Stigma is SO STRONG that it rears its head in sheep clothing in articles which believe themselves to be BUSTING STIGMA
Holy shit guys
This is our world
I’m starting a new blog I don’t think I can handle this stuff anymore!
So off you go everyone….
go thank your friends for putting up with your shit
just make sure they thank you for putting up with THEIRS
