Bipolar and Judgement

5120F8FE-A85B-49CE-AA75-F0DED3A0055E.pngSo much judgement is passed and all any of us wants is to feel loved. My hope is that we stop the judgements and accept others where they are and love them as they are — bipolar or not. But if you find yourself being judged by others, all the control is in your hands. You can choose to let judgements bother you, make you sad and bitter, or you can choose to move past the judgement and love people anyway. I hope we all have the strength and courage to choose the latter.

  1. I struggle with judgement in my workplace. I would love to disclose and be part of shattering the stigma but I fear that judgement at work means loss of employment and needed income.

    1. You are touching on what I believe is a HUGE reason why so many stay in the so-to-speak “bipolar closet.” And that reason is fear of losing employment. I am currently a stay-at-home mom and have not been employed for over a decade, so don’t you know I have some anxiety about getting a job when my kids are all in school! You google my name and the first thing that comes up is that I have bipolar. I knew this, of course, before I began blogging about my life with bipolar. But my rationale was that I wouldn’t want to work for someone who wouldn’t hire me based on my bipolar diagnosis. I completely understand what you are saying though, opening yourself up to judgement is a very difficult decision to make. And a decision to make very carefully. Eiher way, I don’t believe you owe an explanation to anyone, and disclosing your diagnosis is something you should do only if you WANT to and feel comfortable doing so. Much love to you, and thank you for sharing!

      1. Amen! Most people still don’t understand and believe you’re a freak who chooses to give in.
