Relationships While Living With Bipolar

Updated: Aug 4, 2022

I need to prioritize my healthy, supportive relationships.  These people are protective factors against my illness.
Relationships as protective factors.

I feel it necessary to have a wide and long list of people who support me in my life's journey with bipolar disorder. Honestly, all you need is one who is a supportive, caring, and non-judgmental, individual. Someone you can be 100% honest with about your changing moods and how you live your life with the uncertainty about how you will be feeling on a day-to-day basis. I am very grateful that I have several people that I can go to when experiencing my bipolar moods. This list includes the professionals in my life, both my therapist and psychiatrist. I have a close sister and several friends as well that I can lean on. Good, healthy relationships can act as protective factors against my disorder.

Take good care,


"He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own."
