hey, uh, real actual tip from a borderline. if you feel hurt because of something someone did, don’t second guess or ask yourself “am i really hurt or am i over-emotional?”
your feelings are there, aren’t they? you’re hurt.
you’re feeling hurt, no matter how “over-emotional” you are. you’re hurting and your emotions should be treated like anyone else’s. just because you’re borderline doesn’t mean you’re “not actually hurt” or “you’re faking” emotions. you get emotional easily, yes, but those emotions need to be dealt with regardless.
