What are some coping skills and tricks to help with BPD?
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
BPD is extremely difficult to "cope" with. For starters, I implore you do not beat yourself up nor excuse yourself of any wrong doing. Take BPD as a super power. Every super power has its weaknesses. We have the beautiful ability to experience deep emotions, giving up a leg up in understand others, being empathetic, and incredibly compassionate. We are passionate people and intense about what we enjoy and what we stand for. Deep down, we are not our BPD. We are beings with BPD. Remember that. Once you embrace your super powers, you must understand your Kryptonite. DBT is perfect for this. Look up things like "Checking The Facts", "Wise Mind" and "Willingness". Study them. Apply these practices to your daily life. You got this, Kai. You are human. Never forget that.
You deserve a life worth living, Kai.
I would say get a pet or something. Gives you someone who will depend on you but not your kid so you won't worry about letting it down.
GET A FROG!! 🥺
I actually have two aquatic frogs.
No waaaaay!! Amazing!
