Just a thought….

14 Mar

So, I was prompted to some thoughts today. They have crossed my mind in the past but I don’t think I wanted to be real with them. Then, today I read a blog within a blog(if that makes sense?). Both of them had to do with being bipolar and keeping it under wraps. I hate the stigma surrounded around mental illness. I’ve always been the type of person to say, I am who I am, I’m not going to change for anybody! Where I am going with this, is I had a conversation with a friend and neighbor a couple of months ago. She had said something to the fact of keeping certain things to myself, especially in certain situations. I just kind of blew it off. Now I get it. I feel so isolated and I think I know why now. It’s so sad! People are mean, selfish, stupid, uneducated, small minded ‘jerks'(my son’s choice word for mean people). I’ve done a lot of thinking today. I’ve come to realize I am good with the way things are. I’m not pretending for anyone! I’m not phony, never have been. I’m not going to start now. If people can’t accept you for who you are, then they don’t deserve to be a part of your life! Well, a latte is waiting for me and a Celtics game to finish!! Keep your chin up, do what you feel is right and don’t change for anyone!! You’re beautiful just the way you are!!
