I am me.

Aurelia at No Matter How Small tagged me for the "I am" meme. I have had a lot of trouble with this particular meme. When I am a bit high with my most recent run-in with hypomania, I am all good and glorious. When I am very low from a leap into the hole, I am all things evil and ugly. Very ugly. During the navigation between the extremes, I am just plain tired of these travels. So when it comes right down to it...

I am everything, and
I am nothing.

I am oh so up, and
I am on my way down.

I am evil, and
I am good.

I am me.

you forgot 'special'...

Renee said...

You also forgot "loved."

ya know, I think that everyone feels like that. I know that bipolar is more extreem, but I think there's a little bit of that in all of us.

Caro said...

I struggled with that one too.

Sarah said...

although it would seem you've captured just about everything between those extremes, somehow i feel like you're a lot more than just that.

you forgot the two renee and ol lady said but also - I am smart - and I am caring.

Aurelia said...

Ditto everyone's previous comments, and you also forgot...I am kind, caring, brilliant, loyal to friends, supportive to others.

I'm really going to have to come all the way down there and hug the stuffing out of you, aren't I?

You said it in a nutshell and I think we are truly all like that.

Life is NOT perfect that is for sure, but we must be proud of who we are :)
