People with BPD share their secrets and what people wish they knew.


Secrets of People With Borderline Personality Disorder

“I feel everything, all the time. It’s exhausting. But it also makes me passionate, which is beautiful.”

“My mind and heart could be telling you I love you while my words are the direct opposite. Don’t take it personally.”

“Just because I don’t fit the stereotypical borderline doesn’t make my illness less valid.”

“There’s no reason to be afraid of me.”

“I’m not trying to start drama.”

“I’m just as confused by it as you are.”

“My personality disorder doesn’t define who I am, it explains it.”

You never know what someone is going through.
