A lot of the information about BPD out there talks about the negative or challenging aspects of the disorder AND there are a lot of positive qualities for people with BPD. Many of us identify as being sensitive, empathetic, and loving individuals. For those of you with BPD, what positive qualities do you identify with?


As a lifelong perfectionist, accepting that the recovery process can be anything but perfect has been difficult. The above assumption that we agree to abide by from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, an evidence-based treatment for borderline personality disorder, reminds us to give ourselves grace for the often-messy process of healing and being human. In addition, it also encourages us to do better, try harder and be more willing to change.

The world is not a validating place. Having one validating person in our lives gives us the protective factor we need to find the strength to face the world. Be that one validating person and acknowledge feelings.

It's easy to forget our own resilience in the midst of a difficult situation. We get caught up in the struggle and forget that we have what it takes to come out on the other side.

Let that fuel you to keep going, to keep pushing forward, and to never give up.

Believe in yourself, even when it feels like no one else does. Trust that you have the strength and inner resources to overcome anything that comes your way. Keep going, even when it's hard. You've got this.

Don't forget to share this message with someone who needs to hear it today. Let's spread positivity and empower each other!
