Bipolar and Lying: Why Do We Habitually Do It?

Screenshot_2019-01-01-17-22-45I used to make people up; people that did not exist.

It started as a child, and carried me throughout my entire life. A quiet but sound trail that grew into a world of little, white lies…… and I could not stop, come clean or escape.

But, why?

Is there a correlation between lying and bipolar disorder?Β Sure, there is πŸ™‚ Let’s talk about it!

Stay tuned for Part two as I dive right into it. I will share my story with you, and also, discuss where I am today. I plan to be very honest and I am so excited about that.Β canstockphoto3986275

  1. We all have made judgments and we all have created our own ego

    We combine how we feels about ourselves, how our caregivers taught us and how the world treats us to form I, me, mine

    He/She is the ultimate made up character

      • We are not who we think we are or what we judge ourselves to be.

        How would life change if we dropped constant dependence on our ego

        Our ego is the one who worries, doubts and compares.


      • I think ego definitely plays a role in what might cause the lying in the first place, especially when already battling a mental illness that sometimes warps your sense of reality. However, it’s different for each person as well!

      • I agree

        We want to fit in, to be normal, mental illness makes it exponentially harder

        We are dealt our hand, randomly born to specific caregivers with some getting bigger challenges

        I have to deal with my complex ptsd from a violent narcissistic father

        I have a choice, let him win and become a victim or live life in this moment in spite of the negatives

        Much of how we feel is based on expectations and needs

        If you think your owed anything you can be devastated

        For me you could take my possessions and I can let those attachments go

        My daughter and grandkids I am attached to which makes me vulnerable

        That is a vulnerable that brings happiness

        Thinking I am damaged or unworthy is bullshit and I let it pass
