Show Them the Door

  1. As a person living with Bipolar disorder for the past 25 years, I have intimate knowledge of my emotions. I used to try and beat them into submission using various methods, but they never taught me anything, never went away, and always came back. Nor could I simply ignore them as Bipolar disorder is by definition a mood disorder. So, I learned how to “talk” to them. I am still learning how to hold positive “conversation” with my feelings. But, that would be my approach since I have tried others and failed.

    Excellent post!! Very thought provoking 🙂

    […] Part of saving a marriage is being willing to do the dirty work. It’s facing the truth about your own hang-ups and fears. And it’s being willing to face your partner’s independent thoughts and intentions. There’s no room for deflection or defensiveness. You will get muddy. Just accept it. Because the only way to change something is to meet it head-on. […]
