I chose to show many of Carrie Fisher’s quotes because I think they are very good and I can relate to so many of them. I guess that is because there are so many similarities of living with severe Bipolar Disorder. I love how she can put “me” into words.
I don’t hate hardly ever, and when I love, I love for miles and miles. A love so big it should have a capital and its own currency.
A times, being bipolar can be an all consuming challenge, requiring a lot of stamina and even more courage, so if you’re living with this illness and functioning at all, it’s something to be proud of not ashamed of. They should issue medals along with the steady stream of medications.
Sometimes you can only find heaven by slowly backing away from Hell.
Some women play hard to get, I play difficult to understand.
Instant gratification takes too long.
It makes you go very fast or very sad.
I love solo performance because co-stars are so-affordable and easy to work with.
I’m very sane about how crazy I am.
Being normal is vastly overrated.
Bipolar Disorder can be a great teacher. It’s a challenge, but it can set you up to be able to do almost anything else in your life.
I’m fine, but I’m Bipolar. I’m on 7 medications and I take medications 3 times a day. This constantly puts me in touch with the illness I have. I’m never quite allowed to be free of that for a day. It’s like being a diabetic.
Stay afraid, but – DO IT ANYWAY. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it. and eventually the confidence will follow.
Take your broken heart, make it into art.
RIP Carrie Fisher.
