Our brain has the fight-or-flight response/syndrome to help us overcome rare emergency life-or-death situations, eg stumbling upon a tiger in the jungle or getting into a serious car-accident. During such a situation, our brain automatically produces certain brain chemicals(endorphin, dopamine, adrenalin, cortisol, etc) that cause fearlessness, painlessness, increased energy, increased strength, increased concentration, alertness, confidence, etc. The effect is quite manic. This manic response is temporary and may last for 2-4 weeks as our brain can't sustain excessive production of such brain chemicals.
.......I think modern-day stressful living and wrong life decisions can cause someone to enter into such a situation and later may become addicted to its exhiliarating and manic effects; leading to the cyclical Bipolar Disorder or Manic-Depression.
....... Drug-highs is also similar to mania. So, it is common for BD/MD sufferers to become drug addicts or alcoholics or chain-smokers.
Most people accept BD/MD as a chemical imbalance in the brain that causes mania. Then psych prescribe psychotropic pills that dull/suppress the brain's activity. I think such prescriptions will only compound the problem, eg drug-dependence, tolerance-effect and withdrawal symptoms.
Some people do have chemical imbalance in their brains. But this is usually inherited from their foreparents who were chain-smokers, alcoholics, heavy coffee-drinkers or drug-addicts. This is bc long-term use of psychotropic drugs will cause deficiencies in certain brain chemicals due to the brain's negative-feedback mechanism. This deficient trait is then passed on to their babies who suffer from withdrawal symptoms, eg "crack-babies" and "meth-babies".
....... The solution for such "brain-damaged" children is to accept their deficient condition and act accordingly; or to continue the "family tradition" of substance abuse with maintenance-dosage.

Sometimes we are our worst enemy. If we or our forebears commit law-breaking, curses/punishments from God will ensue.(DEUTERONOMY 28:15 & 28:1-2)
1COR 6:9-10 = Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
It is wise, not to engage in pre-marital sex, which is sexual fornication. This will prevent heart-breaks.
Boys do not fall in love, they only fall in lust. The best that a good boy can offer his gf/wife is the bff kind of love or "love her as himself".
Cf, GENESIS 3:16 = To the woman He said: “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;
In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.”
For a girl, falling in love with the wrong boy will cause long-term emotional damage.
Modern society and culture has delayed marriage, many years after puberty. Permissiveness, hedonism and narcissism in Western culture abounds. This has caused most boys to become sexual "predators". There are very few good and God-fearing boys who will commit to their gf's for so many years in their youthful relationship until they are ready for marriage.
....... So, it is better for a girl to err on the side of caution and avoid pre-marital sex, unless the girl is very sure of her bf's faithfulness. The other alternative is to get the boy to marry the girl early.
The key to a brighter life is to repent and follow God and His commandments/words.
JOHN 6:63 = "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life."
....... God = Holy Spirit(God in Spirit-form) = Jesus Christ(God in human-form). God is like Transformer, who can change His form.
