Dating While Bipolar: Failures in Love

So, I learned something about Matt that made me re-evaluate our relationship, for lack of a better term.  It’s not anything bad or irreparable, but it caused me Failuredisappointment about the nature of our dating life.  Or maybe I was just disappointed in myself for having misjudged the situation.  Anyway, the particulars of what I learned are unimportant. To me what matters is that I felt exactly as I did at 12 years old when I had a crush on Josh Rosen and there was nothing I could do to make him “like like” me. Another thirty years of life have apparently given me lots of experience without the wisdom that usually accompanies age.

Armchair Therapist: Celebrity Fit Club, Shar Jackson Edition

One of the benefits of long-term therapy is being able to see yourself very clearly.  Another benefit is seeing others as they are, and I must say that I’m getting really good at spotting the mote in my brother’s eye, so to speak.  But I don’t judge;  I just call it as I see it, and today I’m calling Shar Jackson for not kicking Kevin Federline‘s ASS on Celebrity Fit Club.  You heard it here, from the Armchair Therapist.
