What do you do when your Borderline Personality Disorder makes you self-sabatoge all progress in yourself and your relationships? How to you curb the urge to self-sabatoge?
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
Acute self-inflicted injury
Step back and take a break. It's hard to resist the urge to self-sabotage but you can do it. Take a break long enough for you to feel better
fear of abandonment is my main motivator to not sabotaging my relationships. I'm also autistic so making friends is really hard for me. I agree w eren2273, taking breaks and being up front when you need is a lot of help. you can say things like "I'm getting heated right now and I want to step back to recollect myself." or "I need alone time right now but I want to know you're still available when I'm ready. can I message you in 20 minutes(/however long you need) when I'm feeling better?" Also, when you're in a positive mood, try sitting down with the person(s) you want to communicate with and explain the basic attributes of BPD and what support you need
