    Heart full of aches.

    Dear anyone who will listen, I carry a lot of weight, of past mistakes even though I've asked God to take the pain away, forgave but the memories keep me tied, I've tried to come to terms that ill always be on the losing end. I can become close to someone but I don't know how to keep myself from getting attached, getting attached or borderline is described as favorite person or favorite people. its the best feeling in the world for me with the most damaging results. I feel at my best until someone walks away when I've self stabatogized meaningful relationship, meaningful relationships are heavy. so the dilemma become happy and lose the person since I haven't figured out how to keep people I love or try not to become close to others to keep them safe, those results empty, lonely, unhappy. I don't like anything surface level but the deeper you go, the deeper the pain you get, we never know how deep someone's well is, or how filled their bottle is. I've always wished I could take others pain away and carry for them. I've given it to God, I've cried out but it still feels heavy. Rock added upon rock, over the years but none has been reduce yet I try to give my life to help as many people as I can even if they disagree with what I am doing because of a passion on my heart, I feel heavy for those who deal with mental illness or personality disorders I've tried giving Hope others while starting to lose mine. for months I now I feel disconnected from myself, from others, from my purpose, from God, from the close friends I have left. when I'm around people trying to connect they feel a million miles away even when I'm trying my hardest to focus on them. I get triggered over situation, thoughts, feelings, environments, I use to have skin, but my protective layer is thin or non existing, I can't handle much, little things become huge stressors, things I once enjoyed I now have a hard time doing like kayaking, I cry when I kayak by myself, have a hard time doing my odd jobs, I become scared easily and have a hard time staying alive when loneliness kicks in. The person I wanna be is tainted by trauma, by mental illness. I don't want to use them as an excuse but I also know that I can't overcome them either, I've tried and tried again but borderline or bipolar or trauma takes over my brain at any given moment and then I lose piece by piece as I fight them, but here's the things sorrys will only get you so far, promise the same even when progress is made, a disorder rears its ugly head and says my turn but people dont see is the constant fight against it. trying to lessen the damage though the mind is having a hard time thinking rational, but my inner person is screaming inside saying please Don't do this again. my heart aches for every loss. every loss is beautiful, a gentle heart, a generous soul, A heart full of love, a spirit of caregiving, wise counsel, worthy of praise, memories that fill the heart gladness, immeasurable value, tender heart, sweet voices who seek good, role models, Godly. so many things that are loss. yes they can be replaced but their wouldn't be another alike.

Nobody has to believe me or value what I say but I rather say what is on my heart, I rather have others against than to let these words go unheard, words that are unfiltered.

    I don't know how anyone can move forward in hope, maybe its just because im melocholy kind of person, I value each person, the hardest part is knowing I wont get them back, we are quick to blame toxicity on others, we throw that word around loosely. we have become easy at blame shifting, but maybe most times we are the problem.

    Question if there should be at least six month deration for personality disorders

    Should there be a six month deration for personality disorders? Personality Disorders shouldn't have to be life long, it just has to be chronic, long-term pattern of maladaptive inner experience and sense of self, age onset is late adolescent 16+.

    Although, I made an argument that personality disorders shouldn't be diagnosed until age 26 and six months, to make sure that not only are personalities developed, but until your brain is completely rewired and stops growing.

    Childhood trauma is not a necessary factor. #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder

    I see this a lot, and can only speak for those with BPD, but it’s more correlation than causation. Trauma during development can cause a slew of mental health issues down the line that are not even related to personality disorders. I had what one might call an “ideal” childhood, yet this disorder has ruined my life as an adult. Just don’t feel as though you HAD to have trauma during childhood to fit the diagnostic criteria for BPD, because in fact, it isn’t needed for the diagnosis.
