Self-Examination: Is Being Bipolar a Bad Thing?

The fact that we have to “force” ourselves to go to one extreme to get away from another(usually positive to get away from negative) is a reality of BEing human. However because humans must always put a word to a BEing or feeling or emotion….going from one emotional extreme to another is considered “Bi-polar”. Which is also considered a problem of the psyche(mind). I can agree going from one pole to another can be called BI-polar. However I have to touch the so-called “mind disorder” part.

Human concepts of nature’s (perceived) dualities are female/male, life/death, healthy/sick, body/spirit, light/dark, white/black, energy/mass, above/below, in/out, love/hate, good/evil, hot/cold.

Are such mentioned above not absolute, or at least extreme opposites?

Often we hear some people say they’re “good” and that’s it. Ask them what makes them good and they’ll point out evil beings. Or tell so-called “evil” people that they’re evil and they’ll tell you they’re the best thing that happened since sliced bread…because everyone else is being “fake”.

Why do we have to pretend to be happy when we’re feeling depressed (which is supposedly a range of feelings outside of happiness)?

Why can’t we figure out what is depressing us and work our way back to happiness, or at least, balanced contentment?

Life demands (work, family, relationships, friends) donot give us a chance to dwell on our individual dis-eases and wellnesses. So instead of addressing why we might be angry or sad about something…we “suck it up” and put on a surface smile…sometimes a whole act.

And we do put on a “good” act for so long amount of time…until we either breakdown or secretly indulge in vices, or even go deeper into depressive states. I’d say the more we pretend, the deeper or more severe our depression.

All humans are bi-polar. All humans go from one extreme BEing to the opposite BEing. Very few give themselves the opportunity to examine their internal feelings and emotions. So really are they BEing true on the surface?

Humans fear the very beings they judge…and they judge what they fear. They’re afraid someone/s will look upon them as “crazy” if they should express any feeling or emotion other than extremely happy.

To pretend to be one way as a dual being can cause mind disorders of soughts….and possibly manifest into unhealthy unbalanced states of beings.

Whereas, in a bi-polar person when you feel good(positive) you acknowledge your feelings and dwell in being and doing things in a state of a highly active and sunny disposition. And when you feel bad(negative) you acknowledge your feelings and dwell in being and doing things in a depressed slowed state.

And because the “average” person is actually unbalanced and/or pretentious, seeing someone smile (which does not reflect the unbalanced persons current state) brings the unbalanced person to ask a question, “What’s wrong with you, why are you smiling?” Then seeing that same person another time in an angry state, the unbalanced person immediately says, “He/she crazy! He/she must be bi-polar! They was just happy the other day!” (As if its a bad thing).

Does going out on a shopping spree with a smile on your face mean you’re bipolar? Or happily shopping? Or do you just like shopping? Are rich people bipolar for buying expensive things?

Does laying in your bed crying mean you’re bipolar? Or crying through your feelings while laying in your bed? Does sitting in a park and crying make you less or more bipolar? Or would it make others uncomfortable to see you crying?

Does having sex with different people mean you’re bipolar? Or does it mean you may be freely living? Or promiscuous? Or single so you can do what you want? Or just nasty?

Does yelling and cursing mean you’re bipolar? Or that you’re angry? Are you feeling misunderstood? Having difficulty expressing in higher way?

Does being very happy yesterday then very sad today mean you’re bipolar? Or could situations, circumstances, conditions have changed for you in that amount of time? Or Could you be ok with expressing your feelings and be done with them and move on?

I can go into weather, Earth, universe…and point out various aspects of polarity systems. But I’ll stop here for now…and keep it the mind. For now.

Feel free to ask question, critique, ASSIST, give clarity to your knowledge….your experience helps. 6/25/14 11:11pm

Whether I write or speak I intend well to have a positive impact and good influence when it left my energy. That being said, if you resonate make changes, if you can't resonate, make changes still.

I have many different interests as this world is huge and there are so many places and things to explore. Such an advantage of foster care....so many differences and similarities wrapped in the word FAMILY.

I am a Bachelorette of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and an Associate of Science in Human Services. I possess 20 years as a Human Service Professional and bring training and experience in coaching self-development. I provide empowerment to persons in need of spiritual redirection and can make mental health referrals. I am an Ordained Minister, Certified Life concentrating in Spiritual Re-direction, and a Mental Health First Aid Responder.

I currently work as a human services supervisor with my team who serves close to 400 persons in underserved communities under an inclusive care management organization. Our clientele response is very satisfied and we are able to connect people to medical, mental health, and substance recovery programs, housing, and other entitlements. We provided services during the Covid Pandemic, earning us the Team of the Year Award in 2020.

Even though I was raised through the NYC foster care system and exposed to several religions, I was born into a family of spirituals, pentecostal/non-denominational pastoral leaders, and builders of two church houses, in Laurens South Carolina, and in Chicago Heights. We believe all humans no matter pit or wing, have a universal right to experience their inner soul's actualization right here on Earth.

I specialize in providing comprehensive guidance that will help you achieve new outlooks on your personal and professional life, to be able to achieve the growth you're striving for.
