One Way to Break Out of Bipolar Self-Absorption

August 29, 2009 at 1:15 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

One of the things that most shames me about being bipolar is that I know darned well that I’m self-absorbed. I’m constantly monitoring my internal weather, often to the exclusion of noticing others’ pain or happiness. Depression is a naturally self-absorbed state, since the pain is so distracting that it becomes difficult to break out of one’s tight gray box to notice even the natural world, let alone those pesky Other People who don’t understand. And manic people are so convinced of their brilliance that they can’t shut up and listen.

That’s why I like this guest post from Zen Habits despite the silly name (“Three Jedi ind Tricks to Feel Better in a Nanosecond”). The author’s blog, Freedom Education, was a bit of a disappointment, with too much focus on the Law of Attraction for my taste. That said, I highly recommend this guest post.

Love to all.
