A poem I wrote while manic and feeling my best self– I hung it up in my cubicle to encourage myself. I hope it’s okay to post it here, I just wanted to share the inspiration.
[image description: a handwritten passage in black ink torn off piece of ruled notebook paper. Atop the page, in pink marker, it reads, “MANIC MOTIVATION:”
Beneath that in very small blue ink, it reads, “(Upshot to Bipolar Disorder)”
In black block lettering below, it reads:
“If you cannot be fearless, be brave.
If you cannot be brave, be strong.
If you cannot be strong, be resilient.
And if you cannot be resilient, remember:
You are not alone.
