BPD Quotes

Myth: People with Borderline don't care about others

Fact: We care so much it makes us crazy


You will never understand the hell I feel inside my head


What's the most important thing you've done this year? Survived

I'm sensitive to the point where if you look at me strangely, or don't look at me at all, tell me to stop talking, or don't talk to me at all, ignore my text or ignore my call, whether what you did was an accident or you don't realize you did anything at all, it will change my mood for the whole day and my mind will be corrupted for the whole night

I couldn't trust my own emotions, which emotional reactions were justified, if any, and which ones were tainted by BPD. I found myself fiercly limiting and guarding my emotional reactions, chastising myself for possible distortions and motivations


I'm sorry I have trust issues, but when you give someone everything and gthey toss it away like nothing, something inside you breaks

Positive traits of people with BPD: passionate, empathetic, creative, artistic, witty, intuitive, resilient, intelligent, spontaneous, devoted, receptive, loyal, inquisitive, benevolent, clever, engaging, brave, vivacious, intense, adaptable, charismatic, determined

She didn't need to be saved. She needed to be found and appreciated for exactly who she was


Don't be ashamed of your story. It will inspire others

Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other

About borderline personality disorder

What is BPD?

image128

Meets five or more of the following DSM-IV criteria: extreme measures to avoid abandonment, volatile relationships, unstable self-image, impulsive behaviors, suicidal behavior, self-mutilation, rapid mood changes, feelings of emptiness, extreme anger, and paranoia/dissociation.


Some of the major known symptoms of BPD are unstable relationships, self-identity issues, dangerous emotions, self harm, and extreme reactions to real or imagined abandonment. 


Black and white thinking is a true reality for BPD people. 


BPD is often accompanied by depression, anxiety, anger, substance abuse, rage, and other mental illnesses.,


According to Marsha Linehan, an expert psychologist who specializes in BPD and a survivor of BPD, the sensitivity, intensity, and duration with which BPD people feel emotions have both positive and negative effects. BPD people are often exceptionally enthusiastic, idealistic, joyful, and loving. But they can also be overwhelmed with negative emotions, such as anger, anxiety, depression, rage, worry, or guilt/shame.

Treatments and healing

image130

The primary treatment for BPD is psychotherapy.


Some treatments are more rigorous than others, but the effects of both are basically the same. There are six kinds of treatment available for BPD. They are DDP (Dynamic Deconstructive Psychotherapy), MBT (Mentalization-based treatment), transference-focused psychotherapy, general psychiatric management, schema-focused therapy, and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy).


DBT is the most widely-used treatment, although most of these types of therapies have some positive affect on BPD.

DBT includes, using Mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.


There are no medications for BPD. But you can use medications to treat the symptoms.
