Today is a bonus day off work. I’ve managed to accomplish some housework.

Now I’m sitting here trying to remember who i use to be. The good and the bad. I think of my marriage and the damage i did to my children staying so long. He once told me he never really loved me and yet i stayed.

I’ve learned you have to love yourself before you can love someone else. The thing is my self worth which at times was very good when manic was more often toxic. I know you can’t keep holding the time wasted against myself. Still who would i be if i knew years earlier i was bipolar? Who would i be?

All in all I’m who i am now… the good the bad the ugly… I’m just a human with flaws. I live this life one breath at a time and that has to be good enough.

  1. Bill Hicks once said that we are motivated by fear and love. When we’re motivated by both simultaneously, it can lead to stalling. I wonder what my 18-25 would have looked like if I had been diagnosed correctly as bipolar or if my addictions, which were in full swing, had been recognized by anybody. But I can either waste more time lamenting that time I missed, or I can do something with the time I have left. Manic can suck…or it can be used for good. It’s just a matter how you look at it.

  2. Flaws develop character. Flaws teach us who we want to be. Be good to yourself. I know it’s easy to think of the what if’s, but realistically the ‘Who would I be’ will only ruin your psyche. Think of who you are now and who you can be.
