How my mental health changed my mind set

Before I had my first episode of mania, I would say I was completely a different person. I always chased all my goals and dreams, I was a very stubborn person and very hard working. This changed.

For many years I lost myself confidence, from a size 8 I became a size 16, I just stopped chasing my dreams. All the sudden, all I was thinking about was about the person I used to be.

I spent a lot of time feeling angry at what had happened and why to me? What did I do wrong? I just couldn’t understand.

Seven years later I have had my second episode of mania and spent over three weeks in the hospital recovering.

But my mentality has changed, I now know that you have to let your energy flow with the plan of the universe. What is meant to be, will be. It just depends on how you react to the events that occur in your life. There will be ups and downs. I try not to let the negative things affect my mood, I pray a lot and every day I am making small changes to change my life.
