"Sometimes you just have to be brave. You have to be strong. Sometimes you just can’t give in to weak thoughts. You have to beat down those devils that get inside your head and try to make you panic. You struggle along, putting one foot a little bit ahead of the other."
James Marsden (via psych-facts)

Useful Tips for People with Borderline Personality Disorder: People with borderline personality disorder (BPD) usually exhibit behaviors, feelings and thoughts in drastic forms. Try these things to help you manage impulsive behavior and extreme thinking when dealing with BPD. Slowing down impulsiveness & Cooling down extreme thoughts:

  • When a question or comment upsets you, wait at least five seconds before responding and repeat “calm down” in your mind several times first.
  • When you feel a strong impulse, remind yourself that taking action at those times usually results in bad outcomes.
  • Discuss with your therapist any new, big plans you might have for your life before taking action.
  • Practice breathing exercises often.
  • When you have a hot thought, ask yourself how a friend or family member may look at the same issue differently.
  • When your thoughts are strong and extreme, ask yourself how you may view the triggering event six months down the road and notice the difference.
  • Remember that extreme words and phrases such as always, never, can’t stand it, awful, and horrible are almost always inaccurate. Try to find the shades of gray.

I had my friend from therapy round my house yesterday. It was a last minute thing and I was feeling brave, so I just went for it. It was nice. Kinda worried now but I’m trying to reassure myself that it went okay.

Laying in bed right now, don’t wanna get up.

Things To Remember

wittyandcharming:

  • Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
  • Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
  • Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.
