How’s it going today?
I need to tell you this story about something that happened to me.
This organization is getting very big.
But it isn’t like one of those big corporations that is out to make a lot of money and make people rich.
Like, I don’t even get a salary from it! Honest!
The main thing about this organization is that our motto is to help people with bipolar disorder and their supporters.
That’s what this organization is all about.
And I always hope that that is what we do.
That’s why I hire the people that I hire…
Because they believe in our motto as well.
And that’s part of what makes them good at what they do.
That’s also why I have so many people who work for me who have bipolar disorder themselves.
Because they understand the disorder better than anyone else.
Well, you would NOT believe what happened to me in the last month.
Scroll down to find out.
You’re not going to believe this!
It’ll be worth it to keep scrolling…
Ok, here’s what happened:
I GOT CONNED!
Not just by ONE person…
But by THREE people!
And not just three people over time…
But by three people over the last month!
See, part of the down side of this organization is that you trust people, because you think that everyone else believes in the same cause, of helping people.
Unfortunately, some people are just out for the money, and I guess they see me as an easy target…
Because that’s exactly what happened.
These were companies that were supposed to be helping this organization.
Instead, I got conned.
I just can’t believe that there are people out there like this.
But I guess there are.
Hopefully, I learned my lesson, and it won’t happen again.
But here’s the thing…
The difference between these people and someone with bipolar disorder is…
That someone in a bipolar episode 99% of the time does NOT do it on purpose, where these people did.
If you think your loved one has lied to you…
Or kept something from you…
Or manipulated you…
Chances are, they were in an episode, and didn’t know what they were doing.
So they didn’t do it on purpose.
They didn’t mean to hurt you.
They weren’t exactly in their right mind.
That’s why I explain what a bipolar episode is in my courses/systems, and what to expect.

The important thing you’ve got to know is that your loved one is not doing any of these things on purpose.
It’s the bipolar disorder, and NOT them!
Ask yourself, would my loved one normally do any of these things?
That might help you to separate them from their disorder.
And help you to believe that they are really telling the truth when they say that they never meant to hurt you with their behavior…
Or that they didn’t mean to do any of those things…
Or that they didn’t do it on purpose.
Have you been able to accept this?
Has it helped you to accept your loved one’s behavior during an episode?
