When becoming a parent, there’s no definitive cure-all solution for the complexities of mental health; this is especially true as it relates to teenagers with bipolar disorder. There are a plethora of mental health disorders that could all have an impact on a person’s quality of life. As a parent, it’s difficult to watch your child go through all of that and feel powerless to stop it (or at least help).
There’s no doubt that breakups are difficult to endure; what’s perhaps even more complicated are friendship breakups. Not only is it weird to cut ties with a platonic cohort, but it is equally as weird, if not more, to get over it. The breaking of a deep and meaningful bond can result in a whirlwind of emotions, leaving us feeling lonely, disillusioned, and uncertain.
