There is a possible link between bipolar disorder and creativity. There are many famous people who struggle with bipolar disorder such as Vincent Van Gogh, Ernest Hemingway, Friedrich Nietzsche, Kurt Cobain, Russell Brand, Marilyn Monroe, Robin Williams, and many more people. There is a huge list of creative individuals that struggle with bipolar disorder. Creativity comes in many forms, from musicians, actors, artists, writers, and scientists. Not everyone who is creative has bipolar disorder and not all of those with bipolar disorder are creative. I wonder if there’s a link between creativity and other mental health disorders, or is it just with bipolar disorder?
I’ve never really thought of myself as creative, but I have been told I’m creative by other people. I’ve played many instruments growing up, the saxophone, clarinet, piano, and more. The one that stuck is the piano, which I love to play. I supposed I could consider myself a writer; I do blog almost every day. Maybe I am more creative than I think I am.
