Chapter 55: Struggling With Mental Illness by Leslie A. Fischman
The latest craze is always about something secret becoming known, something special that gets mass marketed and well known, pulls the focus away from something someone's doing to focus on something else, a work product or product. It's not about fame, but about principles, why people become famous, to take care of others, including themselves, it's an achieved state of being, for the well. Rarely have we ever seen someone struggling with mental illness achieve fame, usually they are ignored and for good reason. Always be kind to yourself, you never know who's lives you've made a difference in, without having known them.
Never let yourself go. Never compare yourself to others. Always be thankful for where you're at in life. You can only be you. Never obsess over others. Focus on yourself. Don't get caught up focusing on others. You are your own best friend in life. Always be real, never let anyone bring you down in life. Always rise above drama. Never pack your plate up with more than you can carry. Dream but not bigger than the voice you carry. Love yourself to know when to quit. Never belittle others. Lift yourself first before lifting others. You know you best, always listen to those who care for you. #MentalHealth
Intelligence is in the eye of the beholder. Never doubt yourself. Every effort toward bettering yourself matters. Whether you win or fail in life, never stop trying to do good, know your best, and do well in life.
Know that you're worth it. Always try your best no matter what. You are your own best critic in life, don't be so easily fooled by others. Follow your heart.
Always be ambitious but never at your own expense. Keep yourself separate from your problems, and your personal life separate from your professional life. Accept people as they are. Everyone you meet on a person-to-person basis you know individually through those interactions, you cannot know everyone well, some people you only know professionally. Give it time as you settle back to normal and never give up.
Dont ever stop to wonder what could've would've should've been. You should always be you no matter what else anyone says about you. Know that you are wonderful on the inside out and no one can change you.
When everyone is feeling better, that's you're cue to do better for yourself. Learn how to let go in life. Be there for others, but don't be overbearing let others walk on their own without you. You don't need to have it all or know it all in order to have a good life. You just need to be grateful.
When you're doing well. Keep doing well. It's all a state of mind wellness. When you think well thoughts about self and others you too can fair well in life.
You can't control what people think of you. You can only do your best. Always be a good judge of character. No mental illness is an excuse for hurting the esteems of others including your own. Always represent yourself best. Keep things in a balanced perspective.
Rise above hate. You should always know yourself well enough to know who you are who you are not. Never let the opinions or judgments of others to bring you down in life.
Never assume that everybody knows you. That's usually all in your head.
Never push people away who love you. Usually they are just trying to help you get back on your feet stay centered.
You are a product of your own mistakes in life. Just keep going in life you cannot change others or their thoughts about you, not all people think the same. Just because one passes negative judgment upon you doesn't mean they all do. You just have to keep going in life. Always do the right thing.
Love yourself enough to know your limits in life.
What you think things are about and what they are actually about are two different things. Usually looking back if applied to the present sounds wrong or off. Always stick to present interpretations of present not interpret the past with present interpretations or knowledge, that's called passing judgment on the past.
Its always a compliment to be compared. Whether thought you are something you are or you aren't own it. Not all people are given the attention of the time of day to even be compared in the first place. All attention is good attention, don't attract unwanted attention to self, you're not prepared for.
Never wait until it's too late to speak. Have no regrets in life and always participate. To feel apart of is everything worthwhile.
If it's not possible it's not probable. Know the difference between right and wrong. You should never have to convince anyone of your thought processes. Always think well in order to do well in life. You are always a product of your thoughts. Never become too paranoid to think others have it better in life than you and get sick. You always know best. You are always capable of living your best life if you just make good choice always putting your best foot forward.
Always think best of others to bring out the best in others, think positive. Your take from matters should always be in the positive, to learn positive lessons back to self, not inherit the problems of others, internalize blame. That causes history to repeat itself, when you internalize the issues of the past.
Your problems are your problems you should not make your problems the problems of others in order to feel understood. Always be understanding of one another's time and effort put towards trying to understand you and your problems. The best solution is always one that takes into consideration the problems of all.
Be careful with your words, once said cannot be taken back. Who you offend does not forgive easily. Always speak well of others in order to do well in life.
You have to be careful when confronting what's bothering you, not to offend others during the process of recovery or over the course of discussion.
It's easy to become alienated by use of drugs and alcohol. Why it's important to maintain sobriety once you go sober or else judged in the negative. Maintaining sobriety has been key to my recovery. It's been said that "things only get worse" upon relapse, and that I understand, understand clearly. That in order to manage ones own emotions well, one must be able to manage their lives well, both personally and professionally.
Your recovery is always based upon your willingness to change. Who you become thereafter is a product of your positive influences in life, those who support you when your down. Always be grateful for those systems of support in your life that help guide you through the basics of life. The basics of life include your communication skills both positive and negative, and your ability to comprehend comprehend well the matters of others, including deciphering well your own problems, and being able to effectively communicate what's bothering you, so that you can do well too in life. Always stay positive.
Love yourself always. You never know who could walk into your life and change your life for good and for the better. Always note you're no big deal until someone loves you and you become a big deal to them. Not one more important than the other. Willingness to love is based upon a willingness to change which is based upon a willingness to trust. Without trust there cannot be love and without love no relationship to keep trust and confidences in.
When you feel like you need to be important in someone else's life, usually you are not given the attention back you think you deserve. Always think first for yourself before putting the needs of others before your own. Always be professional in all relationships be careful not to overwhelm others with your problems. That's not the solution.
People matter not things. When you value things not people you know your off base off point with reality. Always maintain a healthy balance between what you value and don't value in life. Be hard on yourself not hard on others, in order to achieve greatness in life one must value themselves not take themselves or their careers lightly but be independent of the thoughts of others. Quelled not rampaging or complaining but getting what needs to be done, done. Knowing ones priorities in life helps one to understand the value of people and their time. That's how you get jobs and get things in life by valuing yourself as well as others too.
When you don't feel good don't think badly of yourself. -When things happen behind your back usually it's because people care, not because they don't care about you. Always be mindful of the thoughts and feelings of others to show genuine care back.
Its by wellness we achieve in life, not by dislike. -When you're doing well others doing well too will stand out to you. It's when you're not doing well that everything negative stands out to you. When things are not going your way in life you have to think positive in order to do well in life.
When you're not doing well in life it's important to perfect yourself until you do well feel well in life, otherwise you get picked apart. Nothing is a facade in life, all recovery takes time. There's a fine line between well and not well when it comes to mental illness and bipolar, you have to maintain steady progress do well in order to achieve and maintain well in life.
Never be aggravated by others. Usually when aggravated we say and hear things in the wrong, what suits us, what perfects us, what makes sense to us. Never argue with an angry person, always walk away. You cannot change people only yourself. Never change yourself or gear yourself to people please those who do not like you, that's just recipe for disaster. Always focus on positive changes you can make in your life to please those who care for you.
The solution is never to pick yourself apart at your own expense. You are all you've got. Self-harm willingly never makes sense. Never knowingly put yourself at risk of harm. You live and you learn in life how to be how to behave and how to see in life. What you know about yourself will dictate how you should react and respond to others, always take into consideration the thoughts and feelings of others, know your best, your strengths and weaknesses. Never respond in the negative to others expected or not, that just makes you look bad.
Always stay positive not one person is ever all knowing. You know yourself best. Don't succumb to the default judgments of others upon you. You cannot concern yourself with the problems of others, if you want to do well in life, you have to be at your best, focused on yourself, how to think best.
When others are negative towards you there's nothing you can do about it. Don't feel hopeless with resentments that's not how to overcome resentments. One must be positive in order to think positive, no one can harm you when you do the right thing, it's when you're in the wrong you get harmed by the thoughts of others. Bipolar is not Schizophrenia and it's not psychic powers, it's just the difference between reading yourself and reading those toward you misreading them as negative or positive toward you. Always think well of self not one is famous or recognizably famous as those who are. Private people are private people and will always be treated as such, special, apart of, one of.
Dont underestimate the power of forgiveness. We all have our moments in life, some forgivable some not, but we are always understandable when in hardship when not when okay when not okay that's always clear. Bipolar is not contagious, it's just understanding what's real what's not real is the problem. When you are focused on yourself not stalking others, focused on your likes not your dislikes you too will feel favorable to your best interests not the interests of others, behave in a people pleasing way, but follow best your instincts not be reliant upon others co-dependent. An independent mindset is always best.
You can't always predict the future of what others will think of you after sharing secrets about yourself. Allow others to pass judgment on you. Allow forgiveness to happen on its own, you must first forgive yourself for your mistakes in life before others can forgive you. There is no room for error past 30 that's for sure. You're either perfect or not, and if you mess up in life it's on you, no one can fix you but you in life. Don't worry what others think, always be right minded to do well in life, and get help when needed.
