Just be yourself and be upfront about your expectations and desires. Don’t be ambiguous and play hard to get. It doesn’t work. You’ll end up in the friend zone. Mike Posner

I have not always been open in sharing my life, I mean I kept people at a distance. I didn’t let many people in, I wanted to have a mystique about myself.
Since I started to write about my journey called the “bi-polar life” I have found it becomes easier to share more deeper issues. Before this I had not ever spoken about my attempted suicide. Except for my best friend no one else really saw me at my lowest when I first entered the Mental Health Ward. That first time I know I probably kept my distance from others also admitted there. The group therapy sessions were for others to talk, I didn’t enter into the conversation.
I came home after that trying my damndest to keep the same routine. Yes, it worked for maybe a couple of weeks only to find myself falling back into my old ways. Eventually I would find myself back in treatment, I started to become more involved in the groups, participating in the conversations, sharing my personal thoughts.
Writing posts on my blog has worked it’s wonder allowing me to feel freer in sharing more of my life.
Reading all of the posts of others has let me know that I am not the only one with feelings, going through the exact things like myself.
While I am reading your posts I say to myself, “that takes guts”. I can feel the despair, the pain, the agony, that comes through your words.
So fellow blogger believe it or not, you are all heroes! Never stop writing your story!
