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.
