Here’s the thing….
Just because I’m bipolar doesn’t mean I can’t have dreams. It doesn’t mean I won’t go far. It doesn’t mean I can’t accomplish.
Sure, I’m going to struggle. I might stumble. I might fall on my face. But isn’t that part of being human?
Don’t marginalize, exclude, or paralyze me because of my diagnosis. I’m more than that. I’m more than a mental “illness”.
I’m funny, creative, smart, quirky, friendly, and loveable.
Maybe if you would take a second to look at the whole person, you would be able to see me for what I really am: someone who has the power to do exceptional things.
Don’t remind me of what I’m not. Help me see all the things I could be.
