how can I cope with everyday life. I seem to be angry more than not .
Try to be grateful for today. My mother always used to remind me of better days ahead
Try to forgive yourself.
It’s so so hard but I’ve found that inner guilt about episodes = anger and irritability. Instead of beating down on myself for whatever I do, I try to just empty my mind and not quiet my voices. It’s not going to work perfectly the first few (or many) times but it’s important to give yourself some grace.
I also have been working on forgiving myself for past mistakes, whether they be outbursts I had while manic or states of recession while depressed. Start with that then try it in current episodes.
You didn’t ask to be bipolar, it’s just how the cookie crumbles. It fucking sucks. However, we can all still make a life for ourselves by accommodating to our circumstances. Don’t compare your journey to others because they’re not going through all the hardships you have to deal with. Forgive yourself for what you can’t control and instead focus on finding what works best for you.
❤️ wishing you the best.

I listen to K-Love radio and write down a gratitude list. It's sometimes short and sometimes long. Breathe and talk to God or a higher power of your choice. Then I text or call someone who might need someone to check in on them. Get out of self. Hope something I suggested works for you too. There's really so much more! 😀
I'm hyper and happy and yes I do get angry about stupid people but you can't let that get in your ways
