“Stop playing the victim” #notavictim #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #whycanttheyunderstand
When I’m hysterical and sobbing and trying with all of the ways I know how to tell someone how I am feeling and how empty and lonely and worthless I feel...and they respond “stop playing the victim”. I know in that moment this person does not know hurt like I do. This person has not stood at the gates to the loneliest, darkest pit and I thank God that they haven’t and pray that they won’t. But their response only makes me feel the need to explain more and prove and defend my position. It’s exhausting and I know I can never get them to agree to my side of things. And I usually back down on my because they get so tired of my persistence that they just ignore me for a while. This all leads to me feeling more empty, lonely and worthless. Wow.
