“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another without loss of enthusiasm.”-Winston Churchill
How do I begin?
My life story is not one for the faint of heart. It includes extensive trips to mental hospitals, toxic family influences on my illness, and a plethora of horrible choices that I made due to my Borderline personality disorder. (Key part being my OWN choices, but we are not there yet) I don’t want to jump right in to the pessimistic stuff or go too much in depth in the about me, but I can say with confidence that I have learned so VERY much from all my giant mistakes, and whenever I can share what I learned it adds so much positive value to them, and that is such an amazing thing to me. To see something positive come from my pain.
My journey to discover mental stability began at the age of 13.
I am now 26. Putting me at 13 years and counting on this path. Even though I don’t have a college degree to show that I am credible, I don’t know what qualifies me more as an expert than over a decade of first-hand experiences. I am also now in the most healthy relationship that I have ever been in, and that is what has given me the strength to make this blog.
If you had asked me before this relationship about making this blog I would have laughed, and said how in the world can I give advice on relationships when I haven’t had a successful one of my own? Well let me tell you this.
The main reason I know I am in a loving, healthy relationship now is because of all the ones I found that didn’t work. I found out what love is by learning what it isn’t. I implore anyone with BPD who is working on themselves to stick around for my posts. The struggles are very real. Your suffering is valid, and I want us to get through this TOGETHER.
Stay. Learn from the love of strangers that we aren’t alone. There are people who DO understand. People care about us. We are loved and not hated by the entire world, and it is with this realization that the world will become a better place.
