Handling Bipolar Extremes

It is a blessing and a curse to feel everything so deeply. I have always looked for the meaning in everything and although this has made me successful, it has also caused me to react to situations in unnecessary ways. Always overanalyzing the behaviors of people and different situations is exhausting. This is a part of living with bipolar 2 disorder. As I get older my emotional extremes have caused me to build a barrier between me and other people. In this video, I talk about living with these types of extremes and how “open dialoguing” has helped in this process.
