Bipolar.We hear that word used more and more.Similar to “stress.”Stress seems to cause everything these days.Then there’s bipolar.Swing a cat by the tail.(There goes that poor cat again.)You’ll hit someone who is bipolar.Guaranteed.That’s because everybody is.Some suffer from it more than others.Blame it on the planet.Earth has two polar regions.One on either end.North and south.Now that’s bipolar big time.We live on the earth.We’re bound to be affected.Trusty Webster says bipolar is:“Characterized by two directly opposite opinions, natures, etc.”That pretty much describes life and relationships.Sooner or later, you’re holding on to one pole.Your pal has the other.Let the fun begin.No need to fight.No one is right.Or wrong.Maybe that’s why two heads are better than one.Bipolar is natural.Normal.Yin and yang.Ebb and flow.Ups and downs.Sometimes you feel like a nut.Sometimes you don’t.So why worry?What goes around, comes around.This too shall pass.Go with the flow.Expand.Contract.Breathe in.Breathe out.If you feel bad, just wait.It will change.If you feel good, just wait.It will change.Just like Texas weather.Hot.Cold.Dry.Freezing.Sunny.Rain.All within 48 hours.Now THAT is bipolar.That’s Mason.
