I think I need to tattoo this somewhere I would see this every day. Perhaps backwards and reverse on my forehead so I can read it in the mirror.

At first Blush, maybe I seem brave to some people for sharing my whole life on my blog. It’s not real bravery.

As Carrie Fisher said:

“I think I do overshare, it’s my way of trying to understand myself.”

I have other reasons for blogging: I hope that people will connect with things I have to share. I hope that I can shed some light on what it’s like, (at least for one person), to live with bipolar disorder. I have a vain hope that maybe I will help someone.

I also blog though because it helps me to see where I’ve been so I don’t go back there. It’s like leaving a trail of breadcrumbs or stones except the path is one to not follow back.

My path back is not secure. It may feel safe in the moment, but there is nothing safe about where I’ve been. My true safety lies in the future even though it feels terrifying all of the time.

I really liked this meme when I saw it. That’s why I stole it off of Twitter. Your forgiveness for that is requested.
