Jasper Benitez is a past TEDx Speaker who enjoys speaking about the topics which many find difficult.
Not only will your loved one help shape your outlook on life, they will also help you learn how to be more in the present and how to adapt quickly to changing situations.
It is through these three benefits, if one cannot find others, that one should exclaim their luck in loving someone with bipolar disorder.
Now 23, Jasper is on a mission to provide mentorship to students, parents, and adults as they navigate through difficult processes such as being diagnosed with a mental health disorder.
By living authentically and speaking with transparency, he seeks to motivate others to live in their truth.
Yet, this is only viewing these characteristics as negatives when in fact they could be turned into positives.
Caring for some with bipolar disorder has its benefits.
Through witnessing the hurt a person with bipolar disorder encounters on a near daily basis, you will become more grateful of your life.
As a loved one, you will not only be grateful for your health but also grateful for the times in which your loved one is in health.
You will learn to face challenges instead of run away from them.
And these are skills which are so desperately needed in today’s society. Along with appreciating the present, you will also learn how to adapt quickly to changing situations.
Because a person with bipolar disorder does not always have the luxury of remaining in recovery, you will learn how to appreciate the moments in which they are in recovery and how to find meaning during the moments in which they relapse.
