I was just trying to think of a way to describe to Non-BPDs how, the more us Borderlines try to fight our emotions, the stronger they become. I just realized that our feelings are like quicksand. The more we struggle against them, the worse we make it for ourselves. Maybe if they can imagine it this way, they can have more patience and compassion for us when we’re going through a difficult time emotionally.
What do you think? Is anyone going to try explaining it this way to your loved ones? If so, let me know how it worked. I’m very anxious to find out.
Till next time,
