When They Mean It

2 thoughts on “When They Mean It”

  1. I haven’t been diagnosed with BPD but I feel like I have it. I’ve had a lot of really bad, short relationships and my long ones were really abusive and bad but now I’m with someone I care about and love a lot but things just keep getting worse. I don’t know how to control my fear of abandonment and it’s making him feel trapped. Now I feel like I’ve detached myself so much from him and the relationship to cope with it all. I’m going to a therapist but I can’t see her often and it’s hard for me to open up. This post gave me a lot of hope, it’s not often I see a success story about relationships and BPD

    1. It’s much more often we hear the hyper negative side of any story, and it’s true that BPD can put some serious strain on a relationship. I’d strongly encourage you to check out the BPD subreddit and see some stories from other people living with this illness. Yeah, a lot of us are constantly struggling, but there are so many stories about success in life and in love. It’s also just so valuable to be able to connect with people like us, it makes me feel so much less alone. Best of luck to you 🙂
