Welcome back to crazy little things! I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not, well that is ok too because you don’t have to be ok all the time as you are only human. I have just realized that I have totally forgotten about doing a review for the book I have just read, The art of not giving a fuck by Mark Manson. OOPS! I will be posting it Sunday and I will say this, what a fucking book! So this week has been ok so far it has had its ups and downs but honestly even though I feel like a ticking time bomb of emotions, I am starting to see what I want and don’t want in my life right now. I think my new therapist is not going to know what hit them when I walk in. I just hope that I keep the bomb from going off before I get to see them. As for knowing what I want and getting there, well that is a journey within itself and right now the only journey my mind and body seems to be up to is the journey from the sofa to the fridge. I also fear of losing people along the way but I can’t let the fear keep me from my own peace, as if those people wanted the best for me then they would stick around instead of jumping ship.
So today’s tip of the day is actually influenced by a drawing I did recently.
What goes down can rise again!
So you feel like you have had enough, it feels like life is knocking your down and you don’t if you have the energy to rise for the hundredth time. We have all been there, right now life has given me a swift kick in the shins and I am so overwhelmed by the pain, which means I am struggling to hear that voice telling to get back up. When you are dealing with a mental illness like bipolar, everything feels like it is timed by one hundred. Best way to describe it is, you are not just sad you are distraught, you are not just empty you are a black hole, you are not just angry you are fucking livid. Your life can feel like it is constantly under a magnifying glass everything seems to affect you in a massive way. So when things get too much and you fall, you fall hard.
The thing is every superhero movie shows us a hard fall, the hero is completely beaten and seems like they won’t defeat the bad guy. Then against all odds, they rise and defeat what knocked them down. So remember the next time life or your mental illness knocks you down, you are a superhero just because you may not have a cap or a special weapon doesn’t mean you can’t be super. So land like a superhero but then rise like one and kick those demons ass!
