We Must Exert Control Over The Small Thoughts !

Perhaps the biggest tragedy of being afflicted by Bipolar Disorder is the frequent inability to create healthy situations and prevent destructive ones. In struggling against the disorder, those afflicted often bring about horrific pain, tumult and heartache. One must exert control over the small thoughts that initially lead to irrational and poisonous emotions. Therefore, it is necessary to master the thoughts that precede this eventual commitment. When struggling to maintain a healthy mood and rational thinking, you can simply declare within that you have firmly committed to not letting an episode flare up. You must then become unambiguously dedicated to a beneficial, non-explosive, neutral or even positive outcome !


  1. Famously known as "nip it in the bud".

  2. Or the old saying. "You hit the nail on the head" with "nipping it in the bud"
    If you nip something in the bud, you deal with a problem when it is still small, before it can grow into something serious. Again a real challenge for the bipolar !

  3. Today, I choose not to be self destructive. Today I choose to enjoy the small moments. Today I choose to soak in the laughter and push away the negative. Today I choose to follow wise words spoken to me. Today I choose to wrap myself in the goodness of the day. Today is mine to mold in to whatever I must. Today I choose stability.
