Equal?

IMG_4140Are some people simply more unlucky than others? Are their burdens of negative things more heavy than those who fly light as a feather? Or are we all equally likely to be blessed/cursed? Do some people simply handle adversity better than others and therefore seem never to have anything bad happen to them? While, do others fall apart and constantly tell the whole world about any and all negative things that may have befallen them?

I have bipolar disorder, so it is more difficult at times to regulate my emotions, specifically the DEPTH of my emotions. But, if you’ve been reading my blog, quite a few negative things have happened to me. That is the truth. I have coped with them as well as I could have done. Still coping. Still trying. Still standing.

Just some thought.

  1. I think its healthy to talk about any negative experience and how it made you feel. To not, would be repressing your true emotions which is not healthy mentally or physically. What happened in your life is traumatic TO YOU. And by default extremely important to you. Its easy to fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others, how they handle things etc. Character, nature, illness, experience all mould us. But we are all beautifully individual and carry our lives in the manner that befits us. Sometimes what seems to be (lucky/unlucky) is all about perception 🙂

  3. I flip through these questions in my swirling brain often. When depressed, I tell myself that I shouldn’t feel the way I do, that I have so much more than other people, that I should get over it. When manic, I don’t give myself long enough to answer one question before I’m onto the next. Thank you for this post; I too am “still coping, still trying, still standing”. For just one day at a time.
