Here’s my quote for the day “I’m not the captain of the ship, but I’m still on the boat!!!”
Ok, so it’s not my quote… I read it somewhere, in some Christian book… But I like it!!! And it’s so true, don’t you think??? I can’t control my bipolar all the time… I can’t always control my emotions or actions… Sometimes I feel as though my bipolar has a mind of it’s own… It’s the ‘captain’ of my thoughts…
But I’m still a crew member!!! I don’t just give all the power to the captain… I take care of my bunk… I scrub the poop deck… You can say I’m the ‘cockswaine’ (the captains right hand man) I’m not going to let bipolar take me down to Davy Jones’ Locker!!! (Ok, so I Googled some terms…)
Anyways, my point is, that I’m not giving up!!! Just because bipolar controls my brain, doesn’t mean it has to control my mind!!!
Well, that’s how I feel when I’m strong… I’m trying to feel that way all the time… Does anyone else struggle with staying on the boat???
