Preaching to the Choir (About Mental Illness) — 2 Comments

  1. Raeyn, you may be preaching to the choir, but that can be very important. Sure there are a lot of bipolar blogs out there (it seems like more and more each year), but you never know when you may touch someone for the very first time. In cyberspace they easily could have stumbled on your blog accidentally and found something they didn’t know they needed.

    In addition, I found, that I’ve been able to touch the lives of friends and family who have a loved one diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I found I touched their lives in many ways and you just may as well. You’re a good writer and that helps.

    In the end, while we may find it important for us to reach others, don’t we really do it for ourselves? For our own self-worth?

    Keep doing what you’re doing. You’re doing great.

  2. I certainly put it out there hoping to help those who, as you said, might stumble upon it on accident (or my friends and family around the world who might still be hiding in fear). But I definitely had to acknowledge the excellence of the community as well. It’s been very good for me, especially as I’ve been adrift online trying to find a new home.

    And I sincerely thank you for your kind words. I definitely need the occasional reminder that I’m putting something of value out there. 🙂
