Ive arrived to the conclusion i must accept him as he is or i will become mad.So the answer for me was to be friends with benefits that way when he didn’t call me i wouldn’t feel rejected.How do these symptoms affect the loved ones of these people? Parents, siblings, friends, and co-workers see these individuals pass between depression and mania, and they see what a toll it takes on them.One of the realities for the loved ones is they begin to understand that they cannot expect the person to always be consistent; they know the mood and behavior can significantly change.If you decide to end a relationship because of a person’s bipolar disorder, try not to blame the person or their condition.It is no one’s fault that the person has the condition.You have just shown a person who believes they aren’t lovable that they can, in fact, be loved. You’ll realize our laugh is contagious, and we always want you to feel the extremes with us. Sometimes we sit there in our lonesome, and we become a person a you won’t recognize.We want to take that feeling all the way to the top of a mountain, and we want to feel your heart race with ours. Suddenly, we stop taking care of ourselves, and you will notice.
We’ll sit there and tell you that this time it’s not you, and we’ll mean it.
He just is unable to act as a normal boyfriend.-When he gets angry(really angry), must i tell him its irrational, to calm down or simply wait till it goes?
Must we tell them the truth of their attitude or will they hate us forever.
Sometimes he is irrational.-I don’t want to sound manipulative , but I’ve treated him well, I have been easy to him , i love him,…are there any psychological tactics to make his uneeded anger disappear, his periods of detachment be milder, that he stops being so egoistic and also sees my needs.
I´m sure there must be a psychological way to combat his inadequate attitudes due to his illness.( For example as giving confidence to a shy person, or making someone with phobias confront them).
