Bipolar Disorder, Confidence and How to Love Yourself
In this world, it’s difficult for most people (with or without a mental health condition) to have high self-esteem. However, when you live with bipolar disorder, it’s even more difficult to love yourself and be confident in your abilities.
In my experience living with bipolar 2 disorder, I realized that I had to redefine some of the words that are used to describe those of us living with a mental health condition. Words, such as “disability” are meant to make us feel lesser than others. It is no surprise that many people living with bipolar disorder, or any mental health condition, have low self-esteem. When I changed how I viewed my disorder, it allowed me to gain confidence and love myself for who I am.
Watch the video. Let me know what you think. Are you confident with bipolar disorder? What do you think needs to change for people living with bipolar disorder to feel confident and love themselves? Please share your experience and thoughts or do a response video and send it into firstname.lastname@example.org. See you next week! Thanks! Hannah
