How to Describe Borderline Personality Disorder to Those Who Don't Understand


There is an upside to everything we perceive as "bad".


Excerpt from the article:


"Unfortunately, I have come to find in my journey that BPD and those with the illness are often portrayed negatively. The symptoms of the disorder seem to be described to inspire fear in those who don’t personally have the disorder while producing stigma and oppression for those living with it. While it is important to highlight the difficulties of the disorder, it is also important to highlight the positives. Such as the fact that individuals with BPD tend to feel emotions stronger, which means that we experience love, happiness and excitement to a higher degree, which often makes many of our relationships more exhilarating. We find that we experience intense connections, and while our relationships may be labeled as unstable, they are often deeper and more meaningful."
