God sometimes uses events to tame the wild beast. In this case, the beast of perfectionism. In what ways has perfectionism affected your life?

The biggest lie that people believe about mental illness is that to have a mental illness you must be 1) insane 2) unintelligent and/or 3) possessed. I am here to tell you that we who have mental are just like you. You often cannot see it in us... Because that's just it you cannot see a mental illness. We often hide our true feelings with a smile. We play the game pretty well because, we've learned the art of mental survival.

People often say things and it can be in good nature but in reality it hurts us more than they can ever imagine. "You don't have a mental illness. You are very intellegent", "You are too (smart, young, beautiful) to be depressed". I will be honest with you, it hurts and angers me to hear this... It disregards, devalues and invalidates the things we feel and experience... That is very scarring! Please, to those who read this, be receiving of my pleas... Don't disregard the pain that we experience in our mental illness... We want validation just as much as you do.

I'm thankful for the normal things, but also some pretty abnormal things. Thankfulness for the things we lack. http://www.lightformi.com/blog/59-thanksgiving #givingthanks

Sometimes the truth can be painful, and sometimes rather than lying, or not mentioning it, we should reevaluate the message.

We need more people to be this open about their mental health issues. #BustTheStigma
"For all the people that are having trouble and maybe feel bad about taking medication, I didn't expect to say this, but that was really it for me," the actress said. "It's okay — you will make it through. It's not easy but you will make it through." - Rene Russo on her decision to share diagnosis with bipolar disorder. http://bit.ly/1vifY8O

Yes...
Catherine Zeta-Jones has got a place in our hearts. Now that she has stood out as a bipolar, we love her only more.
She is not only a great artist, but a woman with courage, rant, empathy and honesty. She is a role model for all girls who grow up in the day, and a daughter-in-law all mothers want.

But what about the ordinary man or lady in the street that does not have any film career behind him or her, that is not a familiar face among the population?
