Imagine having BPD just for a day. Imagine seeing life through the eyes of someone with this disorder…

Someone thinks you’re ‘needy’, with BPD; you just need to know you’re loved.

A person points out your flaws, with BPD, you already know your flaws, you obsess about them, all of the time.

Someone tries to encourage you by pointing out how you could improve on something, with BPD, you only hear the words, ‘you’re a failure.’

Somebody doesn’t ring you when they said they would, with BPD this means they’ve abandoned you.

Somebody asks what you could possibly have to be depressed about, with BPD, you now feel ashamed for feeling this way.

Someone tells you to stop being so negative, with BPD, this only intensifies how you feel.

People tell you that the bad days will pass; with BPD you feel that they don’t understand.

Someone tells you that they’re too busy to see you; with BPD it means that you have become a burden on them.

Someone changes your routine; with BPD they’ve upturned your world.

Look again at somebody with BPD, what is it you see now?

When you finally accept that it’s OK not to have answers and it’s OK not to be perfect, you realize that feeling confused is a normal part of what it is to be a human being.
