I am Not Bipolar

 

I am not bipolar.

Bipolar Disorder is a mental illness I have.

Having bipolar does not define me,

and is just a small part of who I am.

I will exist beside bipolar,

never letting it completely consume me.

I will exist beside bipolar,

never letting it be the center of my life.

I will exist beside bipolar,

never holding its hand,

as I am not dependent on it.

I will exist beside bipolar,

never letting it interfere with the quality of my life.

I will exist beside bipolar,

and accept it as part of who I am.

I will exist beside bipolar,

and celebrate the inner strength,

and many life lessons I have gained.

I will survive despite bipolar,

and be more than I can be.

I will survive despite bipolar,

shining brightly for all to see.

I will survive despite bipolar,

soaring and setting myself free.

I will survive despite bipolar,

and you will be proud of me.
