Wow is all I can say. Mindfulness, I believe, is the only way to become a “successful” bipolar person. It certainly isn’t the easy way out, I can tell you that. I had never heard of bipolar being called a “dangerous gift”, but so so true. I am very glad I found this article. I feel like it validates all the work I have been putting into being knowledgeable and aware of what affects my emotions negatively and positively. A VERY good read!
