Mental Illness does not define someone! It's nothing more than a diagnosis. Bipolar Disorder is an illness I have; it in no way defines who I am! There are so many things in my life that define me; Bipolar is not one of them! There is a huge stigma that society attaches to mental illness. For someone to feel ashamed of an illness they have due to society’s misconceptions is in no way acceptable. Read about my own personal experiences with Bipolar Disorder and join me in KISSING STIGMA GOODBYE!
A follower of Kissing Stigma Goodbye
on Facebook by the name of Lucius Maurice has posted some poems on my
page expressing his thoughts, feelings and emotions as he goes through
his journey. I posed a few of them a couple weeks ago with his permission and now I am posting the ones he has sent to me since then. Enjoy!
Though times you feel alone And no one seems to understand How much you have been suffering
The Almighty has a plan
Under all your pain and emptiness
He planted a seed, a soul
Be strong and just hold on
You shall reap what he has sowed
*A Purpose* So you have no strength To get up today And search for a reason
