I have a mental illness called bipolar. I am not ashamed to admit that to anyone. It makes me imperfectly perfect, a beautiful disaster. I try to speak out fearlessly so the next lovely creature can feel empowered to do the same.
Have you ever noticed when people start talking about mental illness they instinctively lower their voices? This is because our society has enforced such a negative stigma around mental illness. Next time you start a conversation about this subject, speak up.
We need to start conversations, share our experiences and open minds. Be fearlessly fierce! #startaconversation
