A Poem

Communication and Relationships

By Jane Hamilton

Only when people express how they really feel

Can there be real growth with the ability to heal

Communication can go both ways or it can be cut 

Could cutting communication lead to problems with our sleep or gut?

Interaction needs to continue until there’s some sort of resolve

Only then can a relationship grow and evolve

If we just make our point then ghost the other person

We’re only making the relationship worsen

Jane had her first psychotic break when she was 37 years old and in a marriage that was harmful to her well-being. After a brutal divorce and years of psychotic manic episodes (with a pattern of wanting truth and love and world peace) and hospitalizations, she decided to eliminate the stress of her job and quit. Since then, she has been taking meds and attending groups regularly and has been episode free and plans to remain that way. She hopes to inspire others on their journeys to mental wellness.
