People living with#BPD are amazing, even when they don't realise it. They love fiercely & unconditionally. They have tremendous empathy & compassion. They face difficulties and challenges all the time, and yet still keep going. We are truly in awe of each and everyone of you.
Still so many people are afraid to talk about mental health and suicide. There is still a taboo around it. Please know that talking about it saves lives. We talk about breaking our arm, we understand when it is a physical illness, but when it comes to our brain people shy away.
If someone opens up to you about their #BPD, be aware that they are trusting you, which doesn't come easily to those with BPD. It took an awful lot of courage to open up to you. Please don't judge, just listen to them, be kind, be compassionate, ask them what they need.
It's not always easy to live with #BPD - sometimes it can feel unbearable. But with proper medication, therapies and support, you can live well with BPD. To find support available in your area, check out our support directory or drop us an email. http://www.borderlinesupport.org.uk.
