A Simple Portrait of My Emotions

Updated on August 23, 2011

If I could paint a picture with my emotions, I would start with the color blue.

The blue would be the sadness that I can’t seem to shake.

I would add a hint of black.

The black would be the negative feelings that I have towards myself and my outlook of the world.

Then I would be bold and add a splash of red to give it more character.

The red would be my anger that I have a hard time controlling.

It couldn’t hurt to add yellow highlights.

The yellow would be the happier and more hyper moments that I experience. The ones that would cause me to get into trouble.

Maybe a few streaks of white here and there, but not too many.

The white is the medications that I take for my temporary stability.

When all of the colors are combined and the picture is complete, I am looking at a reflection of myself attempting to fight the manifestation of a mixed bipolar episode.
