Borderline Personality Disorder

Fists of rage. Hopelessness.

You’ve experienced pushing people you love away, while also having intensely close relationships with people you’ve just met.

The impulse to self-destruct through physically harming yourself, engaging in toxic relationships, or spending money you don’t have feels like a wild animal you can’t tame.

The feelings of desperation and despair that accompany you no matter where you go lead to terrifying thoughts of ending it all.

Just because you feel this way, doesn't mean you're broken.

It can be hard to recognize this when your emotions are always at a 10.

Trying to make it through each day engaging in the same behaviors only makes things worse.

The emptiness you feel never goes away despite efforts to fill it with intense relationships and substances.

The truth is when you take one step in the right direction, you are bound to continue to see things change for the better every day.

Drastic change is truly possible, when you have the tools and a guide.

How does BPD develop?

According to Marsha Linehan, the founder of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, the evidence-based treatment was specifically created for folks who experience a pattern of emotional dysregulation and difficulties with their sense of self, some of the main symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder views the development of BPD from a bio-social stance.

This means that symptoms and behaviors are caused by both your biology (nature) and the environment in which you were raised (nurture).

As children, we have needs that our parents are required to meet for our physical and emotional well-being.

Growing up in an invalidating environment wherein your parents or caregivers are constantly ignoring or minimizing your emotions can result in an inability to regulate our emotions and produce the need to get attention in other, more intense ways.

We're Here to Help
