Taking Inspiration from Bipolar Disorder

Having my first manic episode was probably the single most positive and life-changing event I have had in my life. During that time, I believed that I would play an integral role in the world by spreading a message of love across the globe. When I mentioned this to my friend's Dad in his kitchen, he reminded me that I was missing an important element: Reality.

Of course, I immediately dismissed his concern as the unrealistic and uninformed opinion of a typical father-type. I had a mission and a purpose and I felt happier than I ever had in my entire life.
