A meme says a thousand words

Wanda D. Jefferson


When I saw this meme it brought tears to my eyes. This is all those of the mental illness community strives to explain daily.

I am bipolar and am not ashamed but often we are judged,ostracized,penalized and stigmatized by society because our illness is not physical.

Anyone with a disability great or small physical or mental goes through a daily struggle that most cannot even imagine.

For me everyday is a new day with endless possibilities good or bad but to God be the glory, I aim for the best.

Inclusion and understanding is all that is really asked for from family members,friends and our community,everything else is a fight that we aim to win!

XOXO

  1. I understand and agree, Wanda. We are all “a work in progress.”

    “I am bipolar and am not ashamed but often we are judged,ostracized,penalized and stigmatized by society because our illness is not physical.” Me too, and we must encourage, empower and stand up for each other.

    May God bless you, girl! ❤

  2. I love the way you say that understanding and inclusion is what we need! Is it sometimes impossible to see the invisible symptoms, and can also be very difficult to describe them

    1. Yes! We must treat everyone with love, respect and understanding. Its time that we all not ostracize one another because its a issue we cannot see or do not understand…lets learn about it…lets pray for one another and lets find a place on this earth and in our hearts for all to be welcome!…Blessings dear!
