Understand, you can’t see BPD. We look like everyday people. We’re not freaks. We just have a hard time controlling our emotions. We have a hard time with our thoughts. We have a hard time not acting on our impulsive behaviors. We are capable of everything you are capable of. Sometimes we may have to work a little harder.
I don’t struggle with borderline personality disorder, or at least I have not been diagnosed with it. However, I read an interesting post on The Mighty about it today. And I believe this disorder deserves to be understood just like other common mental disorders, such as depression and anxiety, which I struggle with. I hope we all can learn to accept and embrace everyone else no matter their flaws or differences, learn to love like God wants us to.
