“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” || credit: quote - pictures  - post source

i hate being such a burden on people though? like I NEED attention, if I don’t get the proper amount of attention I will lose my shit and do reckless stupid things and than not tell anyone about it because I don’t want my destructive bullshit to manipulate them into anything?? so then they dont even know how upset I REALLY am that i’m not receiving the Right amount of attention and they just brush it off but it continues to be a source of stress for me but maybe my expectations are unrealistic to begin with AAaaaahhh

You can never imagine how hard it is to live with borderline personality disorder when you don’t have it. I know may is almost over but show support to everyone who suffers with this horrible illness. It’s next to impossible to live with and we’re constantly abused and treated poorly because of it, even by mental health professionals. Validate, show compassion and don’t fuck with our heads

Day 27 of 31 Days of BPD Awareness

• Day 27: Do you have any bad habits?

Are you kidding me? What kind of question is that? Of course I have bad habits! lol.

So yeah…I obviously have bad habits.  Here are just a few of them:

*I sometimes forget to eat for days at a time, or just don’t have an appetite for a while.

*Sometimes, I binge eat and then force myself to be active until I am completely fatigued.

*I pick open scabs on my skin and pick at any imperfections like pimples, eczema rashes, etc.

*Occasionally, I self-harm in a variety of ways.

*I often don’t drink enough and end up dehydrated, fatigued, irritable, and suffering a horrible headache.

*I take things personally and tend to jump to the worst conclusion.

*I spend money I cannot afford to waste when I get really low.

*I forget stuff all the time.

Brain study of folks with BPD. Interesting. A little scientific but solid information.
