The reality TV star Kim Kardashian recently took to her Instagram stories and shared that her husband Kanye West is suffering from bipolar disorder. She urges people to show compassion and empathy towards him, after his erratic behaviour on social media. "Reality TV star Kardashian West wrote in lengthy Instagram stories that she had been reluctant to speak publicly about how her husband's illness had affected his family . "I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today I feel Like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health," writes Kim. She also mentioned about how much the artiste has been through. But she added that he is a "brilliant and complicated person who on top of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother ... has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions."
She closed out her statement by saying that living with bipolar disorder did not invalidate her husband's dreams or ambitions, "and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true."I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. He is brilliant and complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artiste and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of hi mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bipolar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions. Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. This part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.
