Now that I'm reading a lot of gardening blogs, I see major differences between posting about bipolarity, and posting about a hobby like gardening. The latter is so much easier.
However, in keeping with my promise to myself to spend this month relaxing, and to refrain from thinking about bipolarity so I can concentrate on my personal writing, I've decided to mention the topic in case someone else wishes to blog about it, but not to post about it myself (at least for now).
I have also begun to realize how exhausting it is to tackle difficult topics and try to write thoughtful posts five days a week. This evening, my husband and I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. And it was one of the most satisfying and thought-provoking films I've seen in a long time.
If I weren't taking this "mental" vacation, I would blog about it and tell you what similarities I see between Benjamin Button's disease and bipolarity. But since I am trying to relax my brain, I won't discuss it (at least for now).
I suddenly realize how writing about experiences and trying to make sense of them is very taxing. And even if what I'm writing about resonates with my readers, and helps people perceive things in a different manner, it takes its toll on me.
So, I'm thinking that perhaps there is a way to help others, but to do it in a different way so that I don't keep on burning myself out. It remains to be seen, but rather than spending one more minute thinking about it, I'm going to keep to my resolution, and rest by mind by sharing some images that I find relaxing.
