IMG_3173Dear Mentally Healthy,
First, let me start off saying that for those of us with mental illness, we are thankful for you! The world needs both – as only God Himself, as allowed. We struggle with something you have together, but you inspire us to stay at it! I wish I had a Dr. Seuss book for you that would explain in rhyme and simplicity what it’s like. Because, you guessed it…it’s complicated. It is a mind that lives in two poles. Imagine living every day, in either the North Pole or the South Pole, and not having an equator to land on. At any moment’s notice, skyrocketing or plummeting between them. It’s arguable it might be impossible. But with God, all things are possible. God is my equator in my biPolar mind. God is the hope at the end of my rope. God is my anchor. God is the cushion on which my erratic thoughts land. God is in my mind, in unexplainable drifts, where no sane person would want to go. God holds my mind in the palm of His hand, lest it be too fragile for my body to carry it. A few days ago, I had an unexpected visitor with an unexpected gift. She said I had been [of all things] on her mind. It was this ornament with the word “Hope” on it. How did she know to drop that by? Because like I said earlier, God knows our world needs both kinds of us. Those who keep living with their struggling minds, and those who give us hope to keep living our best! Love, us
