Ray Bradbury said “Go to the edge of the cliff and jump off. Build your wings on the way down.” (Brown Daily Herald, 24 March 1995)
This resonates with me, because I feel like once I got the bipolar diagnosis, I had to trust the doctors, therapists, and the rest of the team I built. I had to let go of being scared and trust that we would all be able to work with everything that comes with bipolar: the episodes, the side-effects of medication, learning how to relate what I was experiencing with others.
I had to jump, and trust that we’d build the wings.
