Hey, i feel the need to write something. Even though I have other things i should be doing. I lived with someone who was bipolar. They were also narcissistic. Only one thing matters to this person, and it is their own social gratification.. Throughout life she had many problems, and wasn’t treated very well. Her self image was that of garbage. So in an effort to feel better she sought the praise from others. In her culture there was no greater standing for a woman than being a mother. So she did. She treated her children like objects. Each one being a badge that proved to others her self worth.
Now all of this is not inherently bad. Think about it, for animals the smell of their child alone is enough to make them take care of the child and that is as close to love as some creatures will ever get. The problem arose when I as her child stood between her, and her self image. When I stood between her and anything that made her happy in life. I was met with a look of hatred, and that soon followed with pain. She did not care about the happiness of anyone else, maybe she just could not internalize how anyone else felt… I do not know. But i say all this so i can teach one point and one point alone;
There is nothing more valuable in this life than living beings. Everything that there is will someday pass away, all your things, all your positions, even your feelings will someday pass. But the spirit does not come from this world of rot and therefore it is most valuable, it comes from a greater place.
In everything you do remember this one lesson, and you will overcome what makes you weak. Any emotional problems that allow you to hurt others will subside and you will remember what matters. Be kind, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you don’t help anyone else to be happy, you will never be happy.
