Shut Up! (Stop begging people to love you)

I have a really bad habit of talking until I'm blue in the face in an effort to give people chances to "fix it"....whatever it is. I don't know why I do this. I find it's counterproductive because as long as I'm talking, it means I still care.... Except, you get to a point where … Continue reading Shut Up! (Stop begging people to love you)

Just Because #BipolarBlog

Just because you feel forsaken, doesn't mean you are.  Just because they tell you "you're forsaken", doesn't mean you are.  You are what you think...and sometimes what you feel...but not necessarily what others say you are.
