In brief: Many of the social

conflicts are similar, but each family is different.
It is very hard to cope with both the manic and the depressive states that people who suffer from bipolar experience. There are support groups for family members to help them learn the best ways to deal with the illness. Family therapy can also be helpful.

I understand you want to use this forum to educate others as you have stated previously, but that is not the appropriately accomplished by posing grand, complex and vague questions about "people" without relevant context.
This is not a discussion forum. It is designed to help people with specific medical or health-related question. Response to such a question is a dissertation without specificity.

In brief: Separate issues

Bipolar disorder and social conflict per se are separate issues.
Now, having said that, patients with bipolar disorder often exhibit similar patterns interpersonally and environmentally in how they deal with the world. These are hopefully reduced with good therapy and appropriate medications.
